The petition was sponsored by MP Rachael Harder, and is spreading rapidly.
A petition sponsored by Conservative MP and Shadow Minister for the Status of Women Rachael Harder is showing the deep concerns of Canadians opposed to Justin Trudeau’s Bill C-71, legislation which seeks to create a backdoor gun registry.
It’s spreading fast, showing the strong opposition of Canadians to Trudeau’s attempt to bring back the long-gun registry by stealth.
The petition is E-1608 (Firearms), and the text is below:
PETITION TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS
- Bill C-71, An Act to amend certain Acts and Regulations in relation to firearms, does nothing to tackle firearms violence, but rather adds further red-tape on law abiding firearms owners;
- This legislation brings back the useless and ineffective long-gun registry; and
- This legislation does not provide the resources to frontline police forces to tackle the true source of firearms violence : gangs and organized criminal enterprises.
We, the undersigned, Residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to scrap Bill C-71, An Act to amend certain Acts and Regulations in relation to firearms, and to instead devote greater resources to policing in Canada.
Representing the voice of the people
Trudeau loves to talk about how “Canadians think” or “Canadians believe,” yet every time he uses those phrases it always turns out that he’s proposing something Canadians oppose.
Of course, he won’t be saying that about opposition to Bill C-71, even though it’s clear that Canadians believe the legislation is a terrible idea.
So, that’s why this petition matters – even though Trudeau will ignore it. Rural Liberal MPs – many of whom are on terrified that they are on the path to defeat – will certainly pay attention to how quickly this poll is spreading. The more signatures it gets the more scared those MPs will be.
I have signed it, and I encourage you to sign it as well. The link is below:
