INT’L – GUN CONTROL – Canada petition urges Trudeau to reverse new gun control measures, sets record for signatures

A Canadian petition asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reverse expansive new gun control rules, which asks him to apologize to legal firearm owners, has earned a record-setting number of signatures. “The Prime Minister’s firearms confiscation regime, undemocratically imposed without debate during a pandemic while Parliament is suspended, is an assault on Canadian democracy,” the petition states. The petition is sponsored by Conservative Member of Parliament Michelle Rempel Garner, whose husband is a U.S. Army veteran, and is initiated by a Calgary man named Jesse Faszer. The digital petition, e-2574, notched 230,905 signatures before it closed. It got so much attention in its first four hours that parliament’s website had server trouble, according to Garner. The previous highest petition also took a stand against gun control and received support from 175,310 signees. RELATED: A Connecticut gun manufacturer’s “ranch” rifle is among the assault-style weapons Canada banned Friday following the Nova Scotia mass shooting, according to a report. The “Mini-14” is sold by Sturm Ruger based in Fairfield, which markets the weapons as “rugged, reliable and durable on the farm, ranch or in the deep woods,” the Connecticut Post reports. Canada’s ban also covers the assault-style rifles sold by other Connecticut gun makers: Colt Manufacturing in Hartford, Mossberg in North Haven, and Stag Arms, which was in New Britain but is now in Wyoming, according to the paper. Stag Arms moved its headquarters last year after Connecticut stiffened its gun laws.  [full article]
