Raquel Dancho on New Bill C-21 Amendments | Nov 24, 2022
The Liberal Government has introduced amendments to Bill C-21 that will ban millions of hunting rifles with a new prohibition of any ‘rifle or shotgun, that is capable of discharging centre-fire ammunition in a semi-automatic manner and that is designed to accept a detachable cartridge magazine with a capacity greater than five cartridges.
Hunting rifles are not the problem. No one believes that going after hunters, and legitimate hunting rifles, will reduce violent crime across the country.
Instead of going after the illegal guns used by criminals and street gangs, Justin Trudeau is targeting law abiding hunters and farmers.
I support common-sense firearms policies that keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals. We will oppose these amendments in committee, and we will stand up for the millions of Canadian hunters affected by Liberal government’s ineffective bans and advocate for real, tough-on-crime policies to clean up our streets and keep Canadians safe.
