CCFR slams Liberals’ gun grab scheme

“We’re here today to talk about the Liberal’s disastrous policies and their atrocious behaviour concerning licensed firearm owners,” said CCFR’s CEO, Rod Giltaca on Wednesday.

Giltaca held a press conference to address his concerns with the Liberal’s proposed gun grab amendments via Bill C-21.

Last week, the Trudeau Liberals attempted to sneak in an amendment to the bill, which Conservatives said would lead to a ban on almost all semi-automatic firearms. 

Giltaca said it’s understandable that most Canadians don’t know about statistics related to gun ownership. He introduced CCFR’s VP, Tracey Wilson, to shed light on the situation.

“Over the last 7 years crime and violence has skyrocketed under the Liberal and NDP government,” Wilson said.

Wilson said that while the government has made life easier for criminals, it’s tightened gun restrictions on law-abiding Canadians. 

“The liberals have rolled out three gun bans in three years, while gang-related homicide has shot up 92% – basically doubled – along with a 32% rise in violent crime all since the Liberals took office” she said.

“What exactly have we done to deserve this, and how is this going to make Canada better?”

Earlier this week, Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino claimed that the reactions to the Bill C-21 amendments were overblown. He said conservatives were “fearmongering” with their concerns about a gun grab scheme. 

But Conservative MP Raquel Dancho disagreed and accused Mendicino of lying. 

“This is disinformation from the Liberal government,” she said.

“The Liberals are banning some of Canada’s most commonly used hunting rifles with their amendments, which is why there’s been an uproar from hunting, wildlife, and farming communities across Canada.”

In 2021, the homicide rate in Canada was the highest its been since 2005. In addition, 90% of homicides by firearm were committed by individuals who did not legally own their gun, of those tracked.

The Counter Signal reported in September that most guns being seized in Toronto are smuggled into Canada from the US. A Toronto Police Service Twitter post shows that 55 of 77 guns seized by Toronto police from June to August were not legal to own in Canada, meaning they were illegally smuggled.
