Canadian Taxpayers Federation Unsubscribe

You could definitely see this coming: Ottawa wants to waste taxpayers’ money taking away hunting rifles and shotguns.
The federal government initially said that its gun ban and buyback “has no intention — no intention whatsoever — to go after long guns and hunting rifles.”
Now a federal briefing note admits what you knew all along. According to documents obtained by Blacklock’s Reporter, this briefing note says that the new federal gun ban “may reduce the number of firearms some hunters use.”
Initially the Parliamentary Budget Officer estimated that Ottawa’s gun buyback was going to cost up to $756 million. Now, with the government adding hundreds of guns to the list, criminologist Gary Mauser estimates it could cost upwards of another billion dollars.
The Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security is still debating the buyback.
New Democrat committee member Alistair MacGregor said the Liberals were acting in bad faith with the way they introduced the newest amendments to the legislation. He said he’s waiting to hear from Canadians before he makes a judgement.
You can tell NDP MP Alistair MacGregor what you think about the gun ban and its projected costs. Here’s his email address: [email protected]
Thanks for standing up for taxpayers!
