SIGN THE PETITION: Tell Your MP to Ban Handguns and Assault Weapons

Polls show Canadians overwhelmingly support handgun and assault weapons bans. Places with handgun bans have seen gun deaths and violence plummet.

Don’t let Canada’s NRA-backed gun lobby win. Tell the federal government to ban handguns and assault weapons.

For the first time in decades, police in Toronto and BC report that more crime guns were traced to Canada than US. The number of legal handguns in Canada has more than doubled with the relaxation of our laws under Stephen Harper – there are now almost 1 million in Canada. More and more they are being misused, stolen, sold illegally diverted through straw purchases. Most Canadians support a ban on the possession of handguns and assault weapons by civilians.

Canada’s gun lobby is opposed to any gun law restrictions. They said they want concealed carry laws brought to Canada. And Scheer’s Conservatives said they want to make weapons like the AR-15 easier to purchase.

We cannot let the NRA-backed gun lobby win. The evidence is overwhelming that reducing access to guns reduces the lethality of violence. It worked in The UK and Australia, and it will work here too.

 Sign the petition: tell Ottawa that you support a ban on handguns and assault weapons in Canada.
