In 1989, in what would eventually be known as the Montreal massacre, Marc Lépine walked into École Polytechnique in Montreal, separated the males from the females, and shot 28 women — killing 14 of them.
In response, Jean Chrétien’s Liberals drafted Bill C-68, which ensured that every hunter, target shooter and gun collector in the country would henceforth face red tape, fees and hassles when trying to own and operate firearms.
This legislation did nothing to prevent crime.
The Conservatives were outspokenly opposed to this bill and campaigned on it – and won several elections in a row. They worked hard to repeal this backwards legislation and restore freedoms to legal, law-abiding firearms owners. And they did.
But then Canada made a huge mistake and elected a Liberal government in 2015. And, well… here we go again.
On February 12, 2016, the Trudeau Liberals confirmed that they plan to put gun laws back into the hands of unelected Ottawa bureaucrats, which is what created the whole mess in the first place!
Tony Bernardo, Executive Director of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association, had this to say:
Hold on tight folks. We’re seeing the resurgence of Liberal Canada – a government that is soft on real criminals, but hard on law-abiding gun owners.
