Horgan Supportive of Handgun Bans
« on: October 14, 2020, 12:25:16 PM »

British Columbia NDP Leader John Horgan, the incumbent Premier who is campaigning ahead of a provincial election on Oct. 24, said he supports increased measures to curb gun violence. His party later said in a statement that it “welcomes” the Throne Speech commitment to municipal handgun bans.

Guess he and Trudeau's Idiot Child plan on sitting down and rewriting the Canadian Criminal Code, Firearms Act & Constitution...

Page 33 of the NDP platform talks about strengthening regulations for gun ranges "to reduce gang violence".

so disconnected from reality, all to appear to address "gun violence" pandering for votes from the low information and ignorant voters, new laws will have zero effect on crime.

Simply following in Justin & Blair's jackboot prints. Called catering to the uninformed masses and intentionally creating fear where it is really very much misplaced.

Virtue signaling to an ignorant support base with zero effect on the recognized problems.

Shameful, but no real surprise.

The Yukon got this one right:

Yellowknife Shooting Club takes aim at feds’ plans to let cities ban handguns

A federal government proposal to allow municipalities to ban handguns isn’t realistic, according to the head of the Yellowknife Shooting Club.
“A city-by-city gun ban would be wholly unworkable,” said Scott Cairns, the club’s president. “This has been recognized even by jurisdictions who were initially in favour of such legislation. It would be terrible legislation that would be tied up in courts forever.”

The Globe and Mail reported on Tuesday that the federal government is going ahead with its plan to allow municipalities to issue federal handgun bans as per its throne speech promises last month.
The national newspaper also followed up with a scathing editorial stating that the move by the federal government was “political cowardice,” and not something that local governments and mayors across the country want to deal with.

Cairns said it would be more effective to use resources to lower violent crime by giving police additional resources to tackle gang-related violence, follow up on court-issued firearms prohibitions related to past criminal activity and prevent the legal system from using firearms-related charges as fodder for plea bargains in criminal cases.
