Liberals Prohibit Handgun Sales/Imports to Licensed Gun Owners
MAY 30, 2022
Before business opened this morning, the RCMP Canadian Firearms Centre shut down firearm retailers’ ability to verify Possession and Acquisition Licenses and perform restricted firearm transfers.
This shutdown of verification and transfer services signalled that new restrictions on PAL holders were imminent.
Then the Minister of Public Safety introduced Bill C-21, An Act to amend certain Acts and to make certain consequential amendments (firearms), to Parliament.
“This means,” Marco Mendicino said, “individuals will be prohibited from buying, selling, transferring or importing handguns.”
Once Royal Assent is obtained for Bill C-21, the sale, transfer and import of handguns will be permanently frozen.
Until that time, regulatory changes announced today to be implemented by regulation that will temporarily freeze handgun sales until Royal Assent.
It appears the temporary freeze by Order in Council will take effect in mid-October .
Permanent magazine restrictions will also be part of this Order in Council according to the Minister’s briefing documents.
GASLIGHTING: Trudeau Claims Accurate Description Of Handgun Ban Is “Misinformation & Disinformation”
MAY 31, 2022
Justin Trudeau continues to deceive Canadians about the impact of his newly proposed federal gun legislation. The legislation explicitly targets law-abiding gun owners by banning the sale and transfer of handguns.
This means someone who owns a handgun and has followed the law will not be able to purchase a new handgun. As a result, this means the legislation directly impacts law-abiding gun owners in Canada.
Meanwhile, the Liberals are reducing punishments for criminals who use guns, as I wrote about here.
Once again, the Liberals are targeting law-abiding gun owners while giving criminals a free pass.
Yet, when asked about this, Trudeau went into ultra-gaslighting mode.
He claimed it was “misinformation and disinformation” to refer to the legislation impacting law-abiding gun owners, even though that’s exactly what the legislation does.
