87 days after the election, the Prime Minister has delivered marching orders to new Public Safety Minister Marco Mendocino. Those orders - continue the assault on licensed Canadian gun owners - show no mercy!!
In all seriousness, the mandate letter is a mish-mash of finishing Blair's dirty work, gun confiscations against legal gun owners and a bunch of scary sounding promises that actually already exist.
Carry out the confiscation of legal guns banned under the May 1 2020 OIC - fight that HERE
Limit magazines to 5 round (already the law in Canada), but they want more than the pinning of mags
Ban the sale of mags that can hold more than 5 rounds, even if pinned to 5
Give the provinces ONE BILLION DOLLARS to ban legal handguns in their jurisdictions
Introduce "red flag laws" - already in Canadian law
So, as you can see, the Liberal focus will be on the continued punishment of Canadian gun owners who are already complying with every law, regardless of how ridiculous they are.
As always, you can count on the CCFR to be at the forefront, fighting to preserve your rights, your sport and your lifestyle, while also holding the government to account for their failure to address actual crime and violence. In fact, this government has also introduced C-5, a bill to remove the mandatory minimum penalties for some very serious gun crimes.
The Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights aims to be a strong and reputable, public-facing voice for Canadian firearms owners. We are committed to maintaining our current rights and freedoms while continuing to push as a mobilizing and organizational force for positive legislative change.
