firearm huntingLarry Miller, Member of Parliament for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, was pleased to stand alongside the Honourable Andrew Scheer, Leader of the Official Opposition, for the announcement that, if elected in 2019, a Conservative Government would repeal and replace the Liberal Government's Bill C-71.

Scheer made the announcement during a press conference following the tabling of an e-petition in response to C-71. The e-petition signed by more than 86,000 Canadians calls on the Government to scrap Bill C-71 and to instead devote greater resources to policing in Canada.

During the press conference, Scheer stated the following: "All C-71 does is target the most responsible and the most vetted members of our society. Should Bill C-71 pass this fall, a Conservative Government elected in 2019 will repeal it and replace it with a law that targets criminals, protects Canadians, and respects sport-shooters and lawabiding firearms owners."

"I was pleased to stand alongside a number of my Conservative colleagues and our leader, Andrew Scheer, today to announce that a Conservative Government will repeal this Government's Bill C-71," said Miller. "Bill C-71 is a firearms registry in disguise and does nothing but target those that already follow the law. This Government's entire approach to firearms regulation in Canada is about image rather substance. It targets those who follow the law while ignoring those that break it. I'm very proud that the Conservative Party has made this commitment."
