C-71 is political in nature, not public safety.
No, and No.
It will mean we have to create records of all guns, including non-restricted firearms.
Dr. Mike Ackermann: The primary weapon in domestic violence is fists and feet, follwoed by knives, and sometimes firearms. No evidence of whether gun registered or not.

Taylor: for transport, it doesn't impact business transport of firearms.

Dr. Mike Ackermann: Yes.
Senator Dagenais: Were you consulted to be part of the committee by this government?
Dr. Mike Ackermann: No.

i.e. she isn't confident the Liberals will win #Election2019. I hope her fear becomes reality.
Bill Blair: Yes. All of my colleagues represent lawful firearm owners in their constituencies and are very dedicated to bringing forward their concerns.
Bill Blair: The nature of criminals is they don't respect any of our laws. It's necessary to make it more difficult for criminals to get their hands on guns.
Bill Blair: One of the points of vulnerability for guns to be stolen is when they are in transport.
