Attention LRGC Members:
New Liberal Election Platform

From Liberal Election website: 

https://liberal.ca/our-platform/ending-gun-violence/

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Toughen our laws on banned assault weapons by making it mandatory for owners to either sell the firearm back to the government for destruction and fair compensation or have it rendered fully and permanently inoperable at government expense.
  • Crack down on high-capacity magazines and require that long gun magazines capable of holding more than 5 rounds be permanently altered so that they can never hold more than 5 rounds
  • Ban the sale or transfer of magazines that could hold more than a legal number of bullets, regardless of how they were intended to be used by the manufacturer.
  • Set aside a minimum of $1 billion to support provinces or territories who implement a ban on handguns across their jurisdiction, to keep our cities and communities safe.

We would also continue to combat gender-based violence and fight gun smuggling with measures we have introduced such as:

  • Lifetime background checks to prevent those with a history of abuse against their spouse or partner from obtaining a firearms license.
  • "Red flag” laws that would allow immediate removal of firearms if that person is a threat to themselves or others, particularly to their spouse or partner.
  • Increased maximum penalties for firearms trafficking and smuggling from 10 to 14 years imprisonment.
  • Enhancing the capacity of the RCMP and the Canada Border Services Agency to combat the illegal importation of firearms.
Wrt how this will affect ONLY Canadians who participate in the shooting sports (as of course - criminals do not care or obey laws) -  please see the following videos:

Firearm News - Updated June 21 2021

Have you been following the CCFR's efforts on your behalf to counter the Liberal and RCMP Initiatives to BAN your legally-acquired firearms? 

If not, you should be! It is your property - and if they have not gotten to your firearms specifically - it won't be long until they do! They are already banning shotguns, hunting rifles and even simple 22 cal sporting rifles - as the types on the prohibited list which were added after May 1 were numerous (updated continuously with last Update in Oct 2020!). This prohibited list is all but guaranteed to still grow without oversight of any kind.  There is still also the unresolved question if the government intends on ANY compensation for these firearms as the government is showing little interest in resolving this question before the two year period is up! 

Any of your firearms could be on the list (see list) - making you an immediate criminal (as the 2 year amnesty promised by the Liberals does not apply to owners of these added firearms) - and you would not necessarily know it as many were unrestricted previously! (A current CSSA legal opinion is that nearly all 12 gauge removable choked firearms are currently prohibited based on the current legal definition as stated in the OIC!)   

Information on the RCMP website and statements (mostly lies) by Minister Bill Blair change without notice - and without discussion or reason, usually to the deficit of the licensed firearm owner. It is difficult to trust that any statements made (written or verbal) will not change or disappear if the Liberals want them to - so confidence is low with respect to our expectation of government fairness wrt our property or person. The RCMP and Minister Blair have been provided with dictatorial powers by Trudeau's Liberals with the goal of removing all firearms from civilians in the long term. This is evidenced by the types of firearms being listed for prohibition - which has continued to increase after May 1st without legitimate criteria other than to virtue signal to obtain the votes of the uneducated public. 

Note that the Liberals are indicating that they will start initiating the content of Bill C71 (which will affect firearm storage and transport requirements) while they are currently trying to push through C21 and C22 which will harass handgun and air-soft pistol owners (C21) while giving reduced sentences to criminals charged with gun crimes (C22).   

Check out the excellent videos, podcasts and other educational materials created by the CCFR available at: CCFR YouTube Channel.  You can also obtain updates to the CCFR/Government legal fight on your behalf and other information at this link. 

Here are the YouTube links to the excellent series "Gun Ban Canada - Exposed" which highlight the details of these Liberal initiatives which were falsely promoted as to "enhance public safety", and expose the lies told by the Liberal government which are being used to justify their irresponsible action on May 1, 2020 and beyond to the uninformed Canadian.  It is OUR/YOUR JOB as a firearm owner to share these videos with these uninformed Canadians to educate them. These videos will reveal to them the fallacy being thrust upon all Canadians by this Liberal government. Please do your part!

Currently it is planned that the CCFR will create a seven part series, of which six are currently available at the links below:  

1) Gun Ban Canada - Exposed; Episode 1 - Is It Really About Public Safety?

2) Gun Ban Canada - Exposed; Episode 2 - Where Do Crime Guns Come From?

3) Gun Ban Canada - Exposed; Episode 3 - Do More Guns Equal More Death?

4) Gun Ban Canada - Exposed; Episode 4 - Common Sense Gun Laws

5) Gun Ban Canada - Exposed; Episode 5 - Why Would Anyone Need a Gun?

6) Gun Ban Canada - Exposed; Episode 6 - Our System is Broken

7) Gun Ban Canada - Exposed: Episode 7 - Series Finale

The CCFR is working hard to support you as a responsible firearm owner whom the Liberal government is demonizing. If you are not currently a member - please join, and also support the legal action by donating NOW!.  Go to the CCFR website to signup or donate: CCFR Website
