    Did my part, email followed by phone call to Anju Dhillon, MP for Dorval—Lachine—LaSalle.

    An aide took notes and confirmed calls/complaints are compiled for stats.

    Time perhaps wasted in this deep core lieberal riding but I did my share.

    Do it. I want my kids and grand kids to enjoy the pleasure of shooting ARs and pistols, just like I currently do.

    Mine is NDP as well, but it was a good conversation, respectful and sympathised.

    My last conversation with mine he advised while C-71 was not ideal it was at least a step in the right direction and would have his full support as it restored some of the controls weakened by the Conservatives. I respectfully let him know I disagreed and pointed out how the "controls" were a sham at best and he advised we would need to agree to disagree.

    Emailed my Liberal MP.

    Dear Mr. Alghabra, the rumor of an upcoming gun ban that isn't being denied by minister Blair is unacceptable. I can't help but feel as if legal gun owners are being used as a diversionary tactic to take pressure off of Mr. Trudeau and his scandals with SNC Lavalin and Mr. Norman's case.

    Using an OIC to push through bad laws is an abuse of power and an attack on millions on gun owning Canadians that have been deemed fit to own firearms by the RCMP. It's time to stop virtue signaling to the masses that firearm restrictions prevent criminals from committing violence, this simply isn't so.

    100,000 responses to the government survey clearly showed that further restrictions on legal firearms owners is not the desired tactic of Canadians. Get tough on criminals, not law abiding citizens!

    And got a rather quick reply.

    Dear Keller,

    Thank you for taking the time to write to me and offer your thoughts on the handgun ban.

    Our government, along with all Canadians are alarmed by the rise in gun violence in the Toronto area and across the country. We are taking this phenomenon extremely seriously and will be examining all tools available to combat it.

    It is a complicated subject that crosses the jurisdictions of municipal, regional, provincial and federal governments.

    Our government has brought together a National Summit on Guns and Gangs to hear from and work with provinces and territories, cities, police, border officials, and community groups who are on the front lines of the fight against violence.

    In support of this collaboration, we are investing $327.6 million over five years and $100 million annually thereafter to fund initiatives aimed at reducing gun crime and criminal gang activities.

    Our government is proposing a series of measures that represent reasonable, practical, common-sense approach to firearms policy that will help our community less vulnerable to violence from firearms, while also maintaining a fair and manageable framework for law-abiding firearms owners and businesses.

    There is no one right policy answer to this challenge. Itís been reported that close to 50% of guns used in crimes were legally purchased in Canada. As a responsible government, we have to examine all options, including a ban on handguns and assault weapons. Our government have consulted widely to strike a balance that is fair, effective, practical, and safe. Our proposal will achieve a fair compromise between the rights of law-abiding gun owners and public safety.

    We also need to continue to strengthen border monitoring to combat gun smuggling into Canada.

    Thank you again for sharing your thoughts with me. Your feedback is valuable during this consultation process and I appreciated your thoughtful analysis.

    Warmest Regards,

    Omar Alghabra

    Member of Parliament for Mississauga Centre

    Interestingly, his web site does not state that he is a Liberal MP.
    I emailed him once. Got an interesting reply. The usual liberal b.s. that this will make us safer etc but he was also a former shooter and r.s.o. He knows whocsigns his cheque so he does what he's told.
    Diversity is social poison.
