The Canadian Shooting Sports Association applauds Bill to end the hated Long Gun Registry

OTTAWA – The CSSA is pleased to support Yorkton-Melville M.P, Garry Breitkreuz’s Private Members Bill to end the hated Long Gun Registry

“Mr Breitkreuz has always been a voice of reason in the House of Commons regarding firearms legislation. This Bill walks the delicate balance between individual rights and public safety perfectly,” stated Tony Bernardo, Executive Director of the Canadian Institute for Legislative Action.

The Breitkreuz Bill contains provisions that will not only end the Long Gun Registry, but make necessary changes to the exorbitant costs associated with the Firearms Act by increasing the efficiency of government. “Ending the Long Gun Registry, merging Authorizations to Transport and merging parallel licensing databases can only result in massively decreased costs with no loss of public safety,” Bernardo added.

CSSA Executive Director Larry Whitmore states, “No Parliamentarian in Canada is more familiar with this file than Garry Breitkreuz. His Bill represents exhaustive study of the problem relating to the Firearms Act. The Breitkreuz Bill will help restore credibility to Canada’s firearms control measures and we strongly encourage all Canadians to support it.” He added, “The technology currently exists to modernize the Firearms Act. Mr. Breitkreuz has shown courage and leadership by tackling this tough issue in a way that will appeal to all conscientious Parliamentarians.”
