WHEREAS the continued support of police forces for a total gun registry is a strong indication of the capacity of the current system to reduce the harm caused by guns; and

WHEREAS certain dangerous weapons are not found on the current list of illegal weapons; and

WHEREAS it is necessary to continue to effectively control the possession and use of guns;

BE IT RESOLVED that the Liberal Party of Canada take the necessary steps:

1. to counter the efforts by the Conservative government to end or reduce the scope of the current gun registry that was enacted by parliament several years ago;

2. to review the classification of guns so that semi-automatic weapons, be classified as an illegal weapons; and

3. to enact more severe laws to better control the possession and use of guns.

It is estimated that a mere 3% of Canadians actually belong to a political party; no doubt only a fraction of them are actively involved in the local riding association.

There are some 2 million gun owners in Canada. Just think what we could do if each and every one of them joined the Conservative Party – we’d own it, lock, stock, and barrell! We could then dictate policy and demand that our elected representatives do what we want, or we’d pull their papers and put someone else in who would.

It’s the most powerful $10 you’ll ever spend.
