FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OTTAWA, ON – Pierre Paul-Hus, Shadow Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, issued a statement following the final vote on the Liberals’ new firearms legislation, Bill C-71:
“Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have failed to address gun crime. Instead, their legislation senselessly targeting law-abiding gun owners has passed it’s final legislative hurdle.
“Imposing a backdoor gun registry does nothing to keep Canadians safe. Not only does it fail to address gang violence or target gang criminals, but the word “gang” does not even appear in the bill.
“Conservatives believe in putting dangerous criminals behind bars where they belong, as well as respecting the rights of law-abiding firearms owners.
"A Conservative Government led by Andrew Scheer will get tough on gangs, give law enforcement the tools they need to keep Canadians safe and crack down on illegal gun smuggling. And we will repeal C-71 once and for all.”
