Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale is promising more rules for lawful Canadian gun owners in the next few years and is taking encouragement from the American calls for gun control after the recent school shooting in Florida.
Goodale told Ipolitics:
“we're working on the final detail right now. It's just about ready to go to the house. I hope to table it in Parliament within the next few weeks.”
Those previously promised reforms include requiring gun retailers to cooperate with police investigations and to keep sales and inventory records - like a registry.
The Liberals previously promised to “tighten up” rules around transport permits for restricted firearms and it would seem that accosting lawful firearms owners will be the only Liberal election promise they may actually keep.
But it’s really not about keeping promises. Since when do Liberals do that anyway? This is about changing the channel away from the Liberals disastrous trip to India and preying on our emotions about the Parkland shooting to do it.
It’s shameless and unfounded.
Watch my video to see why we should all be frightened by a government that takes its policy cues from poorly coached child activists in another country, rather than evidence.
