We, the undersigned, Residents of New Brunswick, call upon the House of Commons to scrap Bill C-71, An Act to amend certain Acts and Regulations in relation to firearms and instead devote greater resources to policing in Canada.
Bill C-71, does nothing to tackle firearms violence, but adds further red tape to the lives of law-abiding hunters and gun owners;
This legislation brings back the useless and ineffective long-gun registry boondoggle; and
This legislation does not provide the resources to front line police forces to tackle the true source of gun violence: gangs and organized criminal enterprises.
Criminals do not follow gun laws, and law-abiding gun owners aren’t criminals.
