"Democracy" is a farce, and has been so for a very long time; well before any weapons bans. Your vote makes no difference. My vote makes no difference. We are nothing more than mice in a maze with a pre-determined exit point and pre-determined treats to keep us engaged along the way. This world is not "for the people," nor is it ran "by the people." The only ones that truly matter are corporations, conglomerates, and some other elite few. The rest of us are fed the coolaid, and most are more than happy to gorge on it all day long while telling tales of their so-called "rights and freedoms."If you do not agree, then you do not believe in democracy.
I would really like to see how a 12 g shotgun falls in with this.Assault Weapons are not long guns for deer hunting.
Wish I could have liked that post more than once. Agree 100% with everything you said. And that’s coming from someone who doesn’t even own a gun or have a PAL.I would really like to see how a 12 g shotgun falls in with this.
REALLY??? Perhaps you should know "assault weapons" are capable of firing on full auto. Been prohib since the 70's. Perhaps you keyboard warriors can explain why shotguns of 10 and 12 g are now prohib because they have an interchangeable choke that also puts them in this assault weapons class. Why are bolt actions now falling into this class?
I've been declared a criminal by my government with a 2 year moratorium (amnesty ) to turn myself in, yet our elected officials have delared theres no need for discussion vote or comment because this is the way it is . IF you truly believe this please look at other countries that have done this. Germany mid 30s to Venezuela now. This country is about to fragment as ... well now its leading into a political thing
From a liberal MP
We thank you for your email concerning the issue of guns, firearms, and public safety in Canada. MP Fragiskatos always appreciates the opportunity to engage with constituents and Canadians to address the questions and concerns they may have.
In terms of the recent announcement regarding the prohibition of assault-style firearms, our government’s top priority is keeping Canadians safe, and we are deeply concerned with the recent acts of gun violence across the country. We have identified key strategies for addressing this issue.
First, we are taking several steps to address gun and gang violence, including providing $86 million to the RCMP and the Canada Border Services Agency, and $200 million to work with the provinces and territories to identify their unique needs. This funding will help prevent illegal firearms and concealed goods from coming into the country illegally, while ensuring that front line officers have access to necessary resources for firearms investigations.
Second, following extensive consultations from provinces and territories, municipalities, police, border officials, and community groups who are at the forefront of efforts to fight against violence, we have concluded that our government must act in response to the violence related to guns.
To this end, we will move forward with our commitment to ban military-style assault weapons and to implement a firearms buy-back program. Minister of Public Safety Bill Blair has released a list of military-style assault weapons that will be banned in Canada.
HOW HAS GOING AFTER LAW ABIDING GUN OWNERS HELPED?
These prohibited firearms and components cannot be legally used, sold, or imported. Owners must also continue to safely store them, and may only transfer and transport them under limited circumstances. These measures will remove dangerous firearms designed for military use from our communities, and help ensure that Canadian families and communities will no longer become victims to gun violence.
NEVER WERE AS ONLY 1 AR WAS USED IN A CRIME AND THAT WAS ILLEGALLY IMPORTED
There will be a transition period of two years to protect owners of newly prohibited firearms from criminal liability while they take steps to comply with these new rules. This two-year amnesty order under the Criminal Code is in effect until April 30, 2022. There are exceptions under the amnesty for Indigenous peoples exercising Aboriginal or treaty rights to hunt, and for those who hunt or trap to sustain themselves or their families. These exceptions will allow for the continued use of newly prohibited firearms in limited circumstances until a suitable replacement can be found. By the end of the amnesty period, all firearms owners must comply with the ban.
SO BECAUSE I'M WHITE I'M NOT ALLOWED TO HUNT, BUT A NATIVE IS .RACISM RIGHT THERE FOLKS
Our government intends to implement a buy-back program as soon as possible to safely remove these firearms and to introduce legislation as early as possible, working with Parliament and through public consultation.
WHO'S GOING TO PAY?
While we are fortunate to live in a safe, orderly society where firearms-related violence is not the norm.
EXCEPT WHEN THESE CLOWNS MAKE IT.
IT''S HAND GUNS ILLEGALLY USED AND IMPORTED THAT'S THE ISSUE BUT THESE ASS CLOWNS CANT USE LOGIC OR DEDUCTIVE REASONING
