The group, which argues many Canadians have opinions about gun control without understanding current law — is making public service announcements, being interviewed by Vice Media and planning a national day of action on big-city streets.

"Firearms owners get it — so you're preaching to the choir when you're pounding your fist and stomping your feet and making demands about your rights," Wilson said. "The minds and hearts you need to change are everyday people, the non-gun owning community, the politicians, the media. That's who your target audience needs to be. Hardline action doesn't really appeal to most of them.

"Not a softer approach by any means — we don't back down, either — but we needed to look at a broader scope of getting the message out."
