Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price shared a rare, politically-charged Instagram post Sunday taking aim at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for what Price apparently perceives as an attempt to inhibit his use of hunting rifles.

The post consisted of a photo of Price in an open field dressed in hunting attire and carrying a gun.

"I love my family, I love my country and I care for my neighbour. I am not a criminal or a threat to society," he wrote. "What [Justin Trudeau] is trying to do is unjust."

"Thank you for listening to my opinion."

The goalie also tagged the pro-gun Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights (CCFR), which is campaigning against a proposed amendment to a federal bill (C-21) that a CBC report suggests would effectively ban some weapons used by hunters.

Liberal MP Pam Damoff has accused the CCFR of "[trafficking] in fear and disinformation."

"We respect hunters and will ensure they can continue to participate in this proud pastime and tradition," she wrote in a December 2 tweet.
