Petition to Government of Canada C-21
Conservatives agree that hunting rifles are not the problem. No one believes that going after hunters, and legitimate hunting rifles, will reduce violent crime across the country.
Instead of going after the illegal guns used by criminals and street gangs, Justin Trudeau is targeting law abiding hunters and farmers. By moving this significant change to legislation at the committee amendments stage, the Liberals did not allow a democratic debate or experts to weigh in on the ban.
The Liberals have made life easier for violent criminals by repealing mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes with Bill C-5, have made it easier to get bail with C-75, and have failed to stop the flow of illegal crime guns across the US border. Canadians have seen their approach is not working with a violent crime increase of 32% since Justin Trudeau took office, 124,000 more violent crime incidents in 2021 compared to 2015, And gang-related homicides have increased 92%.
Conservatives support common-sense firearms policies that keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.
We will oppose these amendments, and we will stand with the millions of Canadian hunters affected by Liberal government’s ineffective bans and advocate for real, tough-on-crime policies to clean up our streets and keep Canadians safe.
