Long-Gun Registry Legislation Introduced | May 11, 2022

Today, the Liberal government re-introduced the 20-year-old long-gun registry boondoggle that failed to address gun violence then and will fail to address gun violence now.

Justin Trudeau said he would never enact a long gun registry and today he is breaking that promise to Canadians by passing off the responsibility to maintain a registry to retailers who sell firearms to lawful and properly licensed Canadians.

The reality is, the vast majority of gun crimes are committed with illegally obtained firearms and Trudeau’s firearm registry does absolutely nothing to stop the flow of illegally acquired guns ending up in the hands of gangs and criminals.

Conservatives believe the government should focus on supporting grassroots community organizations that prevent our youth from joining gangs in the first place, and invest in CBSA and police anti-gang and gun units to provide law enforcement with the resources they need to stop illegal firearm smuggling and gun violence at its root.
