Brian Sauvé, President of the National Police Federation, was interviewed by Todd MacKay of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation about the Gun Confiscation Compensation proposed by the Liberal Government.
“We’re not saying that we support firearm ownership. What we’re saying is we support fair, transparent, evidence-driven decisions by government that are going to really address a problem in society.”
“And that’s the root behind this position paper. It’s really to shine a spotlight on gun violence in Canada and where do those guns come from?
“And should we be devoting our tax dollars through the government to perhaps stem the tide of where those guns are coming from, perhaps increase enforcement, before we go down the regulation process to impact everyday Canadians that have gone through all the regulatory steps to own and possess firearms?”

FEDERAL COURT AFFIDAVIT OF MURRAY SMITH, RCMP FIREARMS FORENSIC SCIENTIST (RETIRED) MANAGER, SPECIALIZED FIREARMS SUPPORT SERVICES (“SFSS”) WITHIN THE CANADIAN FIREARMS PROGRAM (“CFP”) BETWEEN APPLICANTS CHRISTINE GENEROUX, JOHN PEROCCHIO, AND VINCENT R. R. PEROCCHIO AND ATTORNEY GENERAL OF CANADA COURT FILE NO. T-735-20 – OCTOBER 9, 2020
BACKGROUND INFORMATION: FINAL ATTACK AGAINST LIBERAL FIREARM BAN EMPLOYS TOUGH TALK IN COURT DOC – But Generoux’s application, supported by her two co-applicants, is no-holds-barred. They argue the government has over-exaggerated the risk to public safety from licensed firearm owners, noting the extremely low crime rate in the licensed and highly regulated firearm community. The application points out death and injury in other sports. “If the deaths surrounding firearms are such a public safety risk, why are the deaths surrounding swimming pools, motorcycles or other forms of sport and leisure items not considered a public safety risk?” their notice of application asks.

GUNTER: MORE CONCERNING REVELATIONS ABOUT THE LIBERALS’ LATEST GUN BANS
I shudder to think what gun owners in this country would have done without Dennis Young, the firearms researcher who has provided so much useful information on federal gun control efforts over the past 25 years. Working out of his home in Alberta, Young, a former Mountie and Parliament Hill staffer, has dug up more dirt on the Liberals’ sneaky efforts to restrict and outlaw guns than any team of researchers.

Trudeau said he has been around guns his entire life, “I was raised around guns, raising shooting and have guns up at our country place.”
