Andrew Scheer on Liberal Gun-Confiscation Plans
The Trudeau Liberals also recently indicated their proposed firearms ban will be coming in the next few weeks.
Now, let’s be clear about what this is this.
This is an attack on law-abiding, responsible firearms owners: on hunters, on farmers and sport shooters, honest Canadians who follow all the rules already.
Making law-abiding members of our communities follow even more rules will not help solve gun crime.
It’s easy, lazy government to force people who are already following all the rules and all the laws to just follow a few more.
It’s much harder and much more difficult to go after the gang members and the illegally trafficked firearms, but that is the difficult work that Conservatives have always been prepared to do.
Now just a short time ago, our own Member of Parliament Glen Motz launched a petition on this issue, and just in a few days it is already the second-most signed online petition in history.
So let’s not give up, let’s make it the most-signed petition in Canadian history.
Update Jan. 27: Scheer Tweet From Jan. 27
The Liberals proposed firearms ban is an attack on law-abiding, responsible firearms owners. @GlenMotz has launched a petition on issue. If you agree going after law-abiding citizens is wrong and that we must focus of the gang members/illegally trafficked guns, sign here! https://t.co/FGXclen7wi
