What is the National Firearms Association?

The Aims of NFA are: One, and only one Branch of the NFA may be established in each province and each territory of Canada. Each branch has jurisdiction only it its own Province or Territory.

The NFA provides services to the recreational firearms community, including $2,000,000 liability insurance coverage at a cost of $4.50 per member covered per year. It also provides phone-call services for expert advice on many firearms-related matters, from range construction to decision transcripts from firearms cases.

The NFA deals with firearms law in all of its ramifications, from supplying expert witnesses for firearms-related cases in the courts to lobbying for improved firearms control. Our lobbying methods include grassroots political activism within all Parties active in the political process, with extensive direct contact between our members and politicians seeking Party nomination.

The NFA educational program is designed to increase political awareness and encourage direct participation in the partisan political process, but the NFA supports no particular Party. The NFA inform its members of the decisions and actions of all Parties, but the choice of which Party to support or oppose is left entirely to the discretion of the members themselves. The NFA actively promotes membership in the political Party of the NFA supporter's choice, regardless of which Party is chosen.

If the NFA has a political stance, it is that the citizens should have and maintain good control over both the political process and over their elected representatives. Arrogance and untoward willingness to run roughshod over the wishes of the electorate are chronic diseases which frequently afflict politicians in power, an example of the ancient dictum that power corrupts.
