Well, it looks like Justin Trudeau’s crew may finally be forced to listen a little tiny bit to Canadians. Ralph Goodale has been in charge of bringing in new restrictions on firearms owners in Canada. He started with Bill C-71.
Then, Bill Blair was told to come up with a scheme to ban handguns in Canada. The Liberals set up a public consultation process that went very badly for them; it turns out there are hardly any Canadians that share the Liberals’ position. The consultation came back with 110,000 responses supporting present legal gun ownership, and a quarter of that who wanted changes.
It has been demonstrated time and time again that while legal gun owners may be the Liberals’ target, they are not actually the problem. Apparently, it’s easier to pound on regular Canadians than to go after real criminals who are behind well-organized illegal gun and gang activity.
Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Goodale need to understand that listening to tax-paying Canadians will always turn out better than bullying them.
