Ontario Superior Court rejects injunction to stop the elimination of the long-gun registry
Today, the Ontario Superior Court dismissed the motion from the Barbara Schlifer Legal Clinic, which sought to stop our Government from destroying the data contained in the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry. Justice Brown described the arguments put forward against our legislation as “weak”.
We were very pleased that the Ontario Superior Court has ruled in favour of law-abiding hunters, farmers and sport shooters. This is an absolute victory for the rule of law. The will of Parliament and Canadians has been clear. We do not want any form of a wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry.
The NDP has consistently said that if given the chance, they would try and use this data to target law-abiding Canadians. We want to ensure you that our Conservative Government will always stand up for the rights of law-abiding gun owners.
