Mr. Speaker, our Conservative government is committed to effective gun control and over the last three years the government has introduced legislation to make our streets safer and tackle violent crime.
The government introduced mandatory prison sentences for gun crimes and reverse bail provisions for serious offences. These are important steps to get tough on crime, steps the previous Liberal government never took that were long overdue.
We know that criminals do not register their illegal handguns. Would the parliamentary secretary inform the House on an important step to ensure that responsible gun owners are not criminalized?
