Gun lobbies, gun control advocates favour end of latest Liberal bill as Commons recess nears
June 11, 2021
“C-21’s lack of inclusion in the government’s agenda demonstrates the bill’s lack of necessity,” said Tony Bernardo, executive director of Canadian Shooting Sports Association.
“Sport shooters are not using their firearms for evil, but gang crime is sweeping the country,” Bernardo said Friday.
“It is abundantly clear that gang violence is where the government needs to prioritize its efforts, not legislating against RCMP-approved and licensed firearms owners,” he said, reflecting common views of gun owners that have been prevalent through the Liberal government’s gun control program since 2015.
