But the information only became public on Dec. 7, when the government responded to an order paper question from Conservative MP Blaine Calkins.

The 28,000-member Canadian Coalition for Firearms Rights (CCFR), which staunchly opposes the ban, posted the response on Twitter and stated AltisHR was "facilitating" the buyback program. Followers of the group, then posted a photo of AltisHR CEO Kathryn Tremblay along with her cellphone number and location of her family cottage.

As she was climbing into bed on the night of Dec. 7, Ms. Tremblay said she began receiving a series of confusing texts and phone calls.
