Conservative Shadow Minister for Public Safety issues statement on handgun ban legislation

July 30, 2018
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ottawa, ONOttawa, ON – Conservative Shadow Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Pierre Paul-Hus, issued the following statement in response to the Liberal’s potential handgun ban legislation:

“We will wait to see the details of any handgun ban, if and when the Liberals propose it, but Conservatives support measures that target thugs and criminals, not taking away property from law abiding sport shooters.

“As the Liberals themselves have suggested, a handgun ban would be a complex legal endeavour and even their own MPs have doubts that such a move would work.

“We know that whenever the Liberals attempt to curb crime with new gun laws, they always end up targeting law-abiding firearms owners instead of gang members and other criminals who use guns to commit violence. We saw this with the recent Bill C-75, which also reduced gang crime punishment to a fine.

“It’s lazy government to ask all Canadians to follow new laws, while the real work is in targeting and going after criminals. That means strengthening penalties for gun crime and keeping known gang members behind bars, two areas where the Liberals have failed.”

I see this as a potential 2019 election issue. Another cheap vote buy by Liberals for Liberals. Legalization has run it's course, time for something new...

Mentally ill the lieberals may be, but they learn and learning has taught them caution when dealing with Canadian firearms owners, despite what they might want to do with private firearm ownership in Canada. I'd be leaning on them "not" wanting to make it an election issue........last time it was, it cost them. Watching Trudeau discussing it, you could see he was picking his words very carefully. Cons can afford to sit and give Trudeau all the rope he needs to hang himself trying to push his agenda. We all know the firearms community will back the party supporting us, this fact isn't lost on any of the parties.

Technically handguns are banned from cities because you can't have it out with you unless out heading to the range and back...what a load of shyt. How can you ban something that is pretty much banned anyway? They gotta be stored under more stringent controls than a non restricted. Haha too funny.

Neither, it’s not worth chit and probably cheap paper.... rougher than hell!!
Oh contraire my friend..... they will answer it, they have to, its part of the job of the hired help. l've received a few replies from the feds over the years and wondered just how much of my tax money went into creating the official looking response. Confession time............years ago l applied and received a pardon for all my sins done in my wilder youth. The script type paper l received made my college diploma look like it was written on toilet paper. Almost made me want to use it in a job resume it looked that official. So, unless things have changed over the years, there should be a response with officialdom all over it, but very very light in actual content and it won't address your concerns.......

***** VERY IMPORTANT ANOUNCEMENT*****


BSBC.ca has taken the incentive to stand up for "your/our" firearms rights. This is unprecedented(to our knowledge) action to email each and every one of our registered member and include the original letter to be sent to the Liberal PM and his cabinet asking all to sign and send copies to the Parliament in Ottawa. The time to be proactive is now whether you are a hunter, collector, competitive target or recreational shooter we must all stand up and stand together on this assault of our legal rights as legitimate firearm owners. Tell the Government we are not criminals we are voters and will be watching the government's efforts to strip us of our legal rights.

If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAILS AND STAND UP AND BE Counted.

Those are nice guns, I want one myself with a bull barrel and would absolutely love to see one in 22 magnum. I wish they had more handguns available in Canada chambered in 22 mag.

While I see myself as an avid outdoors person I do look at the party's position and also the record of the party leader if/when that particular party gains power.

Having done so these past few years, I will not be voting for |Harper, nor will I be voting "Conservative" in the upcoming election.




There. I guess that puts me on record. Flame On!!! :popcorn:





I heard you loud and clear last election! Why would hunters and shooters chant "vote ABC" then, and now whine about firearm restrictions?

Just go back to the threads that were being discussed prior to the last election,I remember you warning against the Greens in the provincial election and getting poo poo'd. Several members here were very vocal about voting out the cons, Bow Walker and IronNoggin(I told IN his head was in the sand) among them. I don't know who they voted for, but they sure encouraged others to vote against Harper! That brings us to today and our pending handgun/assault rifle ban.

Big difference between federal and provincial. No one I know including Matt and Dan promoted Pierre's idiot child . I would like to see these posts where Nog and BW promoted Greens and NDP or dissed the Cons.

Here's one from Nog
"IMO there is far more at stake to even consider the election as a One Issue decision maker. I've owned guns (rifles, shotguns & handguns) all my life, and will continue to do so. And I am more than willing to toss the dice over unrealistic expectations of another registry over the balance of more pressing issues as I see them.

The Sky Is Falling mentality being displayed within the usual hunting and shooting social media is little more than Fear Mongering and hand wringing. At this point it should be fairly obvious to most that regardless of who may "win" this election, NONE are in a position to collect any more sway than a minority position. Unless something Right Dramatic happens, this is simply the way things are going to go. It therefore holds true that whomever does gain that minority will NOT hold sufficient power / sway to make any kind of real difference in any way. They will simply be held in check by their opponents. This includes any scheming of heavier gun restrictions, up to and including reintroducing registration packages.

Those that believe Harper is a "friend" of gun owners should take a long hard look at his actions. He has NOT followed through on many of his "promises" in this regard, but does trot out piecemeal offerings when it best suits his own agenda. In fact, he holds this type of action over our heads, all the while screaming that to support any other will have disastrous consequences for our ownership privileges. It's simply another tool for this tool to employ when he needs to try and scare some support back into his base following far too many unrelated sins.

I see through this fellow and what he represents. As noted, I own guns. Lots of them. And I expect that I always will. The draconian style of dictatorship Harper et al offers is something I will NOT continue to live with if I can help it. And that my friends, is Very Much worth risking the extremely off chance that someone else might try to negatively effect my gun ownership privileges. The possibility is so remote as to be damn near ludicrous IMO."

Cheers,
Nog

NDP will be the ones in with a small majority.
Canada needs a shakeup and wakeup call before we all get the royal flush down the crapper.
Harper had his chance and honestly the guy is out right scary and can not be allowed to continue.
