The Liberals promised more gun control and now that we've seen the ministerial mandate letters, we know gun control is key to his plan.
The letters to Justice Minister Jody Wilson Raybould and Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale both mention taking action on guns.
They speak about getting handguns and assault weapons off our streets, strengthening controls on handguns and assault weapons and repealing some elements of Bill C-42. Which parts? The parts that made life easier for law abiding gun owners to transport their firearms to the range or their hunt camp.
There's more as I detail in my report but every action they're proposing, comes down to this one fact; Politicians know how to target legal gun owners but they don’t know what to do about street gangs so….they target what they can see.
Whether it's enhanced background checks, additions to the Canadian Firearms Advisory committee or the start of a new gun registry, it will all lead to more paperwork and restrictions on law abiding gun owners but won't really do anything to take guns away from criminals.
In a previous interview about what the Liberals might do, which you can watch here, Tony Bernardo, Executive Director of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association warned that there may not be anything left to register anyway if the proposed marking system goes into effect because it would bankrupt and shut down the Canadian gun industry.
I'll continue to monitor each and every step the new government takes on this file and bring you updates as soon as I can. Remember, I’m on your side.
