Conservatives have always stood up for law-abiding gun owners.
That’s why I was troubled to learn of a decision made by unelected bureaucrats to prohibit a number of rifles imported from Switzerland.
I want to assure you that I will not let law-abiding gun owners suffer as a result of this situation.
These now “prohibited” firearms had been classified as non-restricted for more than a decade. The RCMP has no idea how many of these rifles exist, and they have not announced any plan on how to deal with those who purchased these firearms lawfully.
I want to assure you all options are on the table to fix this situation. I will also be taking steps to make sure this never happens again.
The actions of these bureaucrats are absolutely unacceptable and I will be announcing concrete measures in the coming days.
Our Conservative Government is on your side — and we will always stand up for the rights of law-abiding firearms owners.
Thank you once again for your years of loyal support.
