Dr. Leslyn Lewis Pledges To Repeal Trudeau’s Gun Ban

“Cracking down on law-abiding citizens will do nothing to stop future mass shootings,” says Lewis.

Conservative Party leadership candidate Dr. Leslyn Lewis has pledged to repeal Justin Trudeau’s gun ban. She was the first to make that pledge, beating out Erin O’Toole by a few minutes:

Here’s what Lewis said on Twitter:

“I believe in cracking down hard on smuggled firearms. I believe in empowering police forces to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. But cracking down on law-abiding citizens will do nothing to stop future mass shootings.”

Here’s Lewis’ full statement:

“The Liberals are using the recent tragedy in Nova Scotia to ram through new gun regulations.

I can’t even explain how frustrating this is to see.

All our hearts go out to the victims and their families in Nova Scotia.

But cracking down on law-abiding citizens will do nothing to stop future mass shootings.

I believe in cracking down hard on smuggled firearms.

I believe in empowering police forces to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

I want to lead a government that respects legal gun owners in Canada, instead of one that treats gun owners with contempt and disrespect.

I promise to bring common sense back to Canada’s approach to firearms and review our firearms legislation to make it clear, practical and purposeful instead of adding more legislation to our already confusing laws.

I will do everything in my power to keep our communities safe. But this new Liberal ban does not do that. It should be repealed.”

As we know, the Liberal gun ban will only empower weapon smugglers and criminals, while failing to address gangs – the actual source of gun crime. That’s why it’s good to see Lewis take a stand and pledge to repeal it.

Awesome. This woman has my vote, hands down. No problem. Finally, a sensible, intelligent Conservative that is not afraid to tell it like it is. Trudeau’s real boss Butts still hasn’t been able to potty train his little lackey, and will never be able to. Wake up Canada. Stop being led by a Cape Breton low life like Butts.

How, pray tell, can the Liberals “ram” anything through? They are a minority government. Where are the Conservatives and NDP and why are they not holding them to account? This is ridiculous!

They just did, and will continue to do. The Greens and NDP are easy to bribe. Just mention the word green or taxes and they salivate.

NDP tax form:
How much did you make last year?
Send it in.

NDP, BQ, and Greens support this too, not sure about Jody Wilson-Reyboud but guessing she is in favour, so that means 216 votes in favour to 121 against.

The Bloc, NDP and Greens have said they back the Libs with a ban. But most of the voters for Bloc are hunters, so it will backfire.

Del

Most Chief’s of Police do not support the Liberals on this and haven’t for some time. It is a massive waste of money that could be better used for supporting border security, including at the Ports, that would also deal with illegal drugs.

I hope she’s got some other policies that I’ll like because I’m about to join the party and vote for whoever screams “I’ll repeal this law” the loudest.
The fact that she’s a woman of colour is a nice touch as it will derail the baseless Liberal attacks that the last two CPC leaders faced.
