LETTER: Gun ban not the answer

Trudeau’s efforts attack law-biding gun owners, not the criminals

Dear Editor,

Banning assault rifles is good.

[Feds ban more than 1,500 assault-style rifles in Canada, May 1, Langley Advance Times online]

But the disrespect that Justin Trudeau showed for law-abiding gun owners is amazing.

Media coverage broke that weekend that revealed that there are more bans coming.

MORE ON THE SUBJECT: Trudeau says legislation on municipal handgun bans coming

The facts remain, none of these Liberal policies will do anything to stop gun smuggling at the border, or keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

Punishing law-abiding gun owners is not the answer.
