It seems the people who run the Facebook pages for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party and the Conservative Party of Canada want to ban my friend Chris Reid.
It's because his profile picture is a gun.
Here's the message they sent Chris: "ok chris i'm going to be as polite as possible but your profile picture has to go if you want to continue participating in the conservative facebook groups and think common sence (sic) should indicate my reasons . its simply not approiate (sic) and some users may find it threatening or offensive . i'm giving you 1 warning and 1 day to replace it with something else ."
Talk about gun control!
Anyway, Chris is asking people on Facebook who wish to protest this ban replace their profile picture for a day with a gun, and posting on the Ontario PC Party group page.
As Chris says it's "ridiculous" to censor people's profile pictures, especially when owning a gun is a constitutional right and a completely lawful object.
