Public consultation on handgun and rifle bans

This just in from the Canadian Shooting Sports Association:

Have your say: The Canadian government opens its public consultation on banning handguns and semi-auto rifles.

Prime Minister Trudeau has asked the Honourable Bill Blair, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction, to lead an examination of a ban on handguns and “assault weapons” in Canada, while not impeding the lawful use of firearms by Canadians.

The Government of Canada says they would like to hear your views.

This is your chance to have your say directly to the government. Consultations are available from October 11 to November 10, 2018. Please do this right away.

To make your voice heard, go to:  https://www.canada.ca/en/services/policing/police/crime-and-crime-prevention/reducing-violent-crime-dialogue-handguns-assault-weapons.html

You can go directly to the online survey here: https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/cnslttns/hndgn/index-en.aspx  Note that some proposals are calling for a ban on all semi-automatic rifles (even a little .22), so this is important to us.
