Two Minute Action:Threat to Gun Control

1 Comment

ISSUE: The Coalition for Gun Control has issued an ALERT requesting pressure on local MPs before second reading begins this Monday, September 28, on a Gun Control bill – Bill C-391- that would eliminate current long-gun registration and destroy all existing registration records.

 

ACTION:Members of Parliament are in their ridings this week. Please e-mail, phone or fax your local MP and opposition party leaders and ask them to defeat this bill because the gun registry improves the safety of women and children. To defeat the bill, Liberals, the NDP and the Bloc have to hold party lines. The gun lobby is exerting pressure on rural MPs.  A sample letter to opposition party leaders that you can adapt is attached.
