Conservative Petition Supporting Canadian Firearms Owners Now Largest e-Petition in Canadian History

An online
petition sponsored by Glen Motz, Member of Parliament for Medicine
Hat-Cardston-Warner and Associate Shadow Minister for Public Safety and
Emergency Preparedness, that opposes the Liberals’ plan to ban ‘military-style
assault rifles’ through an Order in Council and bypass the democratic process
of the House of Commons has become the most-signed e-petition in Canadian
history.

The petition has garnered unprecedented support with more than 139,000
signatures as of January 31, 2020, and remains open until February 15, 2020.
This petition surpasses a previous petition sponsored by Nathan Cullen in 2017
that was presented to the House with 130,452 signatures.

“Canadians have been very clear. They want action on crime, action on gangs and
action on illegal firearms, and they want it now,” said MP Motz, a former
police officer with the Medicine Hat Police Service. “Making law-abiding
members of our communities follow even more rules will not help solve gun
crime.”

“The Liberals’ policies are targeting law-abiding firearms owners instead of
criminals and gangs which are the real issues,” Motz added, “It’s much harder
and more difficult to go after the gang members and the illegally trafficked
firearms, but that is the difficult work that Conservatives have always been
prepared to do.”

Concerned Canadians have until February 15, 2020 to sign the e-Petition, which
