Desperate and Unpopular Liberal Government announces gun ban Election platform

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal Government, reeling from recent controversies, allegations of fraud, and the failures of his government, announced that his government will renew its attack on the rights. freedoms and property of Canadians if re elected.

Promising to target and ban “assault weapons,” a thinly disguised buzz word for semi automatic rifles, the Liberal plan also promises to impose a hodge podge of laws allowing cities to enact gun bans in their own jurisdictions if returned to office.

Speaking from Prince George, NFA President Sheldon Clare stated: “This is a desperate, hail Mary election ploy akin to the one tried by Prime Minister Paul Martin in the 2006 federal election, when he promised to ban hand guns if re elected.”

“It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now”.

“This crass and ill spirited move designed solely to take the focus off the Prime Minister and his government’s failures will not go unnoticed by Canadian voters this October,” Clare continued.

These legally owned firearms are not generally used in crimes and offences in Canada, and the Government has no statistical evidence to justify an election platform that has serious ramifications on the rights, freedoms and property of Canadians.
