Liberal Firearms Ban Punishes Law-Abiding Canadians | May 26, 2020

Justin Trudeau is using the current pandemic and the immediate emotion of the horrific attack in Nova Scotia to push the Liberals’ ideological agenda and make major firearms policy changes. That is wrong.

The Trudeau Liberals have made it clear throughout this crisis that they do not respect the democratic role of Parliament. That cannot continue.

If the Prime Minister has the strength of his convictions, he should wait until the health crisis has passed and introduce legislation in the House of Commons, so that it can be debated, and Canadians’ voices can be heard.
Taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens does nothing to stop dangerous criminals who obtain their guns illegally.

The reality is, the vast majority of gun crimes are committed with illegally obtained firearms. Nothing the Trudeau Liberals announced addresses this problem.

Conservatives have and will always support common-sense firearms policies that keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.
