WINNIPEG, MANITOBA - April 14, 2019 (LSN) The Trudeau government and the corrupt anti-freedom elites didn’t get exactly what they expected from a consultation on the idea of a wide-ranging gun ban.
The Liberals have been laying the rhetorical groundwork for a ban on handguns and so-called ‘assault-weapons’ (a category always kept purposely vague by the elites), and introduced a ‘consultation’ to see what people think.
And according to a new report, that response was strongly against a gun ban.
According to the CP, while there were mixed opinions through the in-person meeting process (meetings picked by the government of course, when it came to the open questionnaire proceess, “most people who responded to a questionnaire were against a ban.”
Additionally, “Many participants felt strongly that a ban would target law-abiding owners, rather than illicit firearms, and would not reduce gang violence, the report says. As a result, many called for beefing up police and border services, as well as tougher penalties for firearms-trafficking and gun-related crime.”
In fact, out of 135,000 respondents, a full 80% were against a gun ban.
Rather than a ban, there was strong support for more sharing of date on gun crime, as well as looking into the underlying problems of crime.
This shows that Canadians – particularly Canadian gun owners – have strong common sense.
Taking guns away from law-abiding Canadians would do nothing to make Canada safer, and would just leave guns in the hands of criminals.
We need to deal with the problem of crime, not take away freedoms from law-abiding Canadians.
The Trudeau government must listen to the will of the People and shelve any ideas for a foolish gun ban.
