Online Mobilization to Reduce Violent Crime: Dialogue on Handguns and Assault Weapons

You are a firearms owner, you want to make your opinion known about the possible ban on handguns and weapons that the Ministry of Public Security calls “assault weapons”.

The online mobilization ends on November 10, 2018.

Here is an excerpt from their website:

Ensuring community safety and reducing violent crime is a priority for the Government of Canada. That is why, in his mandate letter, the Prime Minister asked the Honorable Bill Blair, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction, to look into the possibility of banning handguns and Assault weapons in Canada without hindering the legitimate use of firearms by Canadians. The Government of Canada would like to hear your views. This will be an excellent opportunity to focus on gaps, challenges, and ideas to help guide future measures to reduce violent crime in Canada.

NB: In Bill C-71, the word gang is not used once and in Bill C-75, we try to reduce the penalties for major crimes, including the trafficking of weapons.

How can we reduce crime if we target honest owners instead of directly targeting criminals and street gangs?

How can we claim to protect public safety if our goal is to reduce penalties when committing similar crimes?

For the public and the safety of all, the money invested should be used to detect and help those caught with mental health problems, street gangs and criminals.

You are witnesses of abnormal things, it is also your duty to report it to the authorities.

An AR-15 is a semi-automatic rifle that is classified restricted in Canada. The possession of high capacity magazine (30 balls) is criminal according to the law already in force. This platform is used in particular for shooting sport and of course you must have a restricted weapon license and meet the requirements for the posession of this class of weapon.
