Official E-Petition to Canadian Government re: Firearms Legislation

Post by IronNoggin » Wed Mar 28, 2018 4:26 pm

Here is your opportunity to let the entire House know you are NOT happy with Trudeau and Goodale's anything but gangs and violence bill that only further targets and restricts legal firearm owners in Canada.

The more support, the better.

Cheers & THANKS!

32,000 signatures now.
But what is more interesting to some, is the point spread of where those signatures are coming from.
Not quite what I would have expected...

Ontario in the lead at 9,627 (29 %)

Alberta second (no surprize) at 6730 (21 %)

British Columbia next at 5770 (18 %)

Quebec at 3975 (12.5 %)

Saskatchewan lagging at 1728 (5.5 %)

And the balance trailing behind at less than 5 % of the total in each case.

What surprises me is the leading role of Ontario which is often considered one of the liberal's stongholds, and the showing by Quebec (another somewhat supporter of theirs, and the only province to maintain the failed long gun registry). Not surprised at Alberta and BC's placing so far, the west has generally more firearms owners per capita than most of the east. Saskatchewan is a bit of a mystery though being as far down in this poll as they are. Most I know out there are either farmers, ranchers or hunters / fishermen, and most (by far) are firearms owners.

Anyway, that's where we stack up today. If Trudeau actually thought this purposely deceptive bill was going to save his butt from the current downtrends he is creating in the polls, he appears to have ,missed. By a fairly wide margin that is...

Petition runs until July 26. Anyone care to wager on the numbers when it does??

By conflating gang violence with gun violence, Bill C-71 breaks the government’s repeated promises that criminal legislation will rely upon “evidence-based decision making.” Bill C-71 exaggerates the problem with guns by relying upon false assumptions to target law-abiding citizens instead of criminals.

Bill C-71 is a red herring. The real problem, ignored in this bill, is gang violence. Bill C-71 focuses on PAL holders, not violent criminals. Hunters and sport shooters are not the problem. Legal guns are not a major conduit for criminals to get guns. The public is not at risk from law-abiding PAL holders.

The additional regulatory complexity created by Bill C-71 will increase demands upon government services and increase costs to taxpayers. This can only reduce public safety.
