Mr. Speaker, yesterday the public safety committee studied and adopted our Conservative government's proposed regulations to end the back door long gun registry and ensure the will of Parliament would be respected with regard to ending the wasteful and ineffective long gun registry for good.
However, the member for Gatineau stated that the NDP had no position on bringing back this wasteful and ineffective measure that had done nothing to reduce crime. I would remind her that the NDP leader said that he would work to register firearms and that everyone in the NDP would follow.
Rather than trying to hide their anti-western and rural agenda from Canadians, I encourage the NDP members to be upfront with the hunters and farmers whose livelihoods they want to impact.
The truth is, Conservatives are the only ones who will stand up for the rights of law-abiding gun owners.
