Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present three petitions from constituents. The first one is in regard to the long gun registry.
The petitioners point out that the long gun registry was originally budgeted to cost Canadians $2 million, but the price tag spiralled out of control to an estimated $2 billion a decade later. They point out that the registry has not saved one life since it was introduced.
They call upon the House of Commons to support legislation that would cancel the long gun registry and streamline the Firearms Act.
