Oh please. This coming from someone who regularly and flippantly calls politicians and advocates "liars" #GunLobbyBullies

.@Calibremag gets it right & corrects politicians (read: @CPC_HQ MPs) who say @liberal_party's amendment to #BillC21 is a blanket ban on semi-automatic firearms. #Kudos to CalibreMagazine for being the only honest player on the pro-gun side of ...this debate https://calibremag.ca/bill-c-21-amendments-fallout-and-pushback-begin/

.@Liberal MP @PamDamoff said amendment to #BillC21 would ban & codify in #CriminalCode the kinds of guns banned in 2020: "I just want to make clear that we are not going after hunters.

Shorter 🧵 on #BillC21 #AssaultWeapon amendment that adresses guns that are explicitly *excluded* from the ban:
(Thank you A.J.)

these are the guns being banned: SKS, Tavor, X-95, all AR180 and variants, Canuck bullpup shotguns, Crusader Arms, Kel-Tec Sub2000, SU16, RDB, RFB, JR Carbine, Kriss Vector, Ruger PC Carbine, Norinco T97 NSR, Benelli M4.

Another good 🧵 on the assault weapon ban amendment #BillC21

Our evergreen amendment to Bill C-21 means that a legal definition of a military style assault firearm will be enshrined in the Criminal Code. This will ensure that Canada has a fair and consistent standard for what constitutes a military style ...assault firearm.
