Petition to Stop C-71
A petition to stop Bill C-71 took less than three days to become Canada’s most-signed electronic petition related to firearms.
Nationwide opposition is mounting against the proposed law aiming to ban more guns and strangle millions of lawful hunters, farmers and sport shooters with red tape, while leaving violent criminals alone.
Text of Petition e-1608
Petition to the House of Commons
Bill C-71, An Act to amend certain Acts and Regulations in relation to firearms, does nothing to tackle firearms violence, but rather adds further red tape on law-abiding firearms owners;
This legislation brings back the useless and ineffective long-gun registry; and
This legislation does not provide the resources to frontline police forces to tackle the true source of firearms violence : gangs and organized criminal enterprises.
We, the undersigned, Residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to scrap Bill C-71, An Act to amend certain Acts and Regulations in relation to firearms, and to instead devote greater resources to policing in Canada.
