e-2582 (Democratic process)

Initiated by Emile Saurette from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Prime Minister

  • The newly advised gun ban was rolled out undemocratically and is designed around emotion rather than science/fact or current statistics;
  • The newly advised gun ban did not have parliamentary discourse and was not executed in an emergency state; and
  • The newly advised gun ban creates criminals out of law abiding citizens and does nothing to deter or hinder further illegal activity.
We, the undersigned, concerned, free citizens of democratic Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to:
1- Immediately repeal the gun ban which lists about 1500 firearms as illegal;
2- Enact proper parliamentary discourse on the proposed ban, even if that means engaging the senate;
3- Inform citizens on current gun laws as well as criminal laws that already exist and identify how this ban could assist;
4- That full financial disclosure prior to spending further tax dollars on the program/laws costs should be made; and
5- That this petition would also exist should any law have been created undemocratically, which would label current law abiding citizens as potential criminals or threats for owning specific property, which was perfectly legal the day before.
