A last-minute amendment to the Liberals' long gun ban, Bill C-21, will criminalize hundreds of thousands of firearms owners in Western Canada.
“Manitoba's government stands united with Saskatchewan and Alberta in opposing the federal Liberal government's confiscation plans,” said Manitoba Justice Minister Kelvin Goertzen.
Amendment G-4, the last-minute addition to Bill C-21, will ban centrefire semi-autos like the plentiful and affordable SKS and shotguns with a “detachable cartridge magazine with a capacity of greater than five cartridges.”
Or as the Fraser Institute rightly puts it: most firearms used by hunters in Canada.
The result will be the largest gun ban in Canadian history.
Alberta's Justice Minister, Tyler Shandro, has come out swinging against the latest prohibition.
In a slight at the feds, Alberta appointed its own chief firearms officer, Dr. Terri Bryant, who has also spoken out against the ban, calling the treatment of the law-abiding firearms community “relentless persecution” that “we will oppose by every means possible.”
The province of Saskatchewan was the first to join Alberta in the Western premiers' alliance against the confiscation last week.
