Trudeau To Turn Canadians Into Defenseless Serfs with Semi-Auto Gun Bans

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau renewed his election promise to ban guns from hundreds of thousands of families who use firearms for hunting, sport shooting and on farms and ranches.

He will speak to the House of Commons in Ottawa tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. (See these links for what happened on December 6th: Trudeau’s Mass Confiscation Order Will Include Mini-14 Owners and Trudeau Expands Municipal Gun-Ban Plan to Include ‘Communities’)

New Smear

Today’s Speech from the Throne to outline government priorities shared Trudeau’s newest smear against the 2.2 million men and women with a federal firearm Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL). Demonizing PAL holders is a favourite tactic of the prime minister and his Liberal Party. The speech lumped together safe and responsible firearm users with the gangs, robbers and drug dealers causing violence and crime.

Throne Speech Quote (Bold Added)

“Year after year, headline after headline, Canadians have seen firsthand the devastating effects of gun violence. Too many lives lost, too many families shattered. It is time to show courage, and strengthen gun control.”

The Government will crack down on gun crime, banning military-style assault rifles and taking steps to introduce a buy-back program. Municipalities and communities that want to ban handguns will be able to do so. And the Government will invest to help cities fight gang-related violence.” (Source: Speech From the Throne )The Speech from the Throne is written by the prime minister’s office. Governor General Julie Payette presented it this afternoon, following the Oct. 21 election that handed Trudeau a second term.

Confiscation Order

Trudeau campaigned on promises for the biggest gun bans against PAL holders in Canadian history:

  • Order the surrender of about 250,000 rifles within two years, in exchange for payment. He called the mainly “Non-restricted” hunting and sporting models “military-style assault rifles.”
  • Help municipalities expel licensed handgun owners through new prohibitions and restrictions.

All guns are banned already for anyone without a permit. Failing to obey a prohibition or confiscation order can lead to jail.
