The Common Sense Firearms Act, recently introduced in Parliament, is just that: common sense.

Well, common sense to everyone but Justin Trudeau and the Liberal elites. The Liberals have sent out a fundraising effort warning Canadians that this bill will allow criminals easier access to assault rifles. Pure fantasy.

This continued attack and blatant disregard for the facts is an affront to licensed firearms owners and those who believe in real public safety measures.

Yukon residents use firearms as on important tool to support a way of life. Reducing duplicate paperwork so an otherwise law-abiding person isn’t ensnared in criminal treatment is common sense. Merging licences is common sense. Requiring first-time firearms owners to pass a test is common sense. Strengthening penalties in cases of domestic violence is common sense.

Voting against the Common Sense Firearms Act is not. We know where our MP Ryan Leef stands on this issue. Now the question is where do you stand, Larry Bagnell? With Yukon residents and common sense or with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal elites?
