Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The government of Canada has failed to effectively remove firearms and other lethal weapons from the hands of criminals;
  • Bans and laws have never prevented criminal behaviour and there is no factual evidence that banning legal firearm ownership will reduce the number of firearms possessed by criminals;
  • Firearm ownership has traditionally contributed enormously to our economy through cultural activities, sports, tourism and a host of other entirely beneficial spinoffs; and
  • Previous firearms legislation has proven reasonably effective at ensuring the safety of Canadians.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to (a) withdraw the repressive and counter-productive Bill C-71 in its entirety and refrain from issuing a Cabinet Directive to ban legally owned firearms; (b) acknowledge the effective contributions to peace order and responsible government of law-abiding gun owners; and (c) pass a law mandating that all future changes to the Firearms Regulations and Firearms Classifications be made only through Parliament and with the approval of Parliament.
