The latest gun-control legislation from the Liberals passed the House of Commons last week and has already cleared second reading in the Senate, and it’s ugly.
Bill C-71 repeals Stephen Harper's easing of rules around authorizations to transport restricted firearms, despite no evidence that the easing of restrictions caused an increase in gun crimes.
The law randomly declassified two popular and very expensive Canadian rifles, moving them from non-restricted to completely prohibited, apropos of nothing.
And that’s just the beginning. The Liberals aren’t done yet.
Canada’s newly minted Minister of gangs, guns and borders, Bill Blair, is ignoring the gangs and border problems and coming for your guns instead.
He’s in the middle of a nation-wide public consultation process and meeting with selected Liberal agenda driven experts to discuss a full nation-wide handgun and semi-auto ban.
This is the largest attack on Canadian firearms owners in a generation.
But my guest tonight isn’t giving up. His organization, the Canadian Shooting Sports Association, has launched a letter-writing campaign targeting Senators and MPs.
Tony Bernardo joins me tonight to discuss what the new gun law means for Canadian gun owners and how they’re fighting back.
