What Does This Mean For Tax Payers ?

Firearm owner or not this is something that should concern all Canadian’s. The Justin Trudeau spending spree sees no end, if he’s not spending your money giving his friends contracts and lining the pockets of the already wealthy. He’s now looking at spending the Canadian tax payers money on buying back firearms that have been used safely in Canada for over the last 40 plus years. The buyback program which started off being costed out to the amount of 256 million is now north of 750+ million. Shocked ? I am not in the least, what many Canada’s do not understand there will be many other costs that will go along with the buyback program that will drive the cost up. If I had to guess north of 5 billion when you add in all the factors.

Where is this all coming from ? Well since the Liberal government took power under Justin Trudeau back in 2015 they ran on a platform of falsehoods with the use and policies of firearms. All firearms owners know this is simply not true, all the red tape you must cross in order to get a PAL or RPAL (non restricted and Restricted firearms licence) in Canada, The restrictions they must follow in regards to storage, transportation and usage. Yet the general public not interest in firearms along with the anti firearms public have no idea of the policies and red tape one must go through in order to get a firearms license in Canada, so they are the perfect target to with the Trudeau falsehoods.

Heck if I was not a sport shooter and firearms collector that had not taken a firearms training course to obtain my RPAL, I might actually believe everything the Trudeau government has been spewing out. Firearms owners are not the problem.

I feel safer on a gun range then I would walking around any metropolitan area in Canada. known criminals do not follow rules, they have no respect for the law of the land

Where Does This Leave The Tax Payers?

It leaves Canadian tax payers and future tax payers with a rather large bill and for what? will this make Canada any safer ? The anti firearms people and this government will argue yes it will make Canada safer by getting firearms off the street. Their solution remove firearms from the 2.2+ million licenses firearms owners, the ones vetted each day by the RCMP through the continuing eligibility program. Adding on to each Canadian’s debit with a total cost of over 1 billion dollars by the time you factor in every.

If we are going to spend that kind of money shouldn’t we at least try and solve the root problem. Spend money at our boarders to stop the illegal flow of firearms into the country that get diverted into the illegal market, spend money on policing in high crime areas, spend money on education in schools with firearms safety courses as well have youth programs for troubled teens steering them away from the life of gangs. lastly greater penalties for people who do not follow the laws.

I want a safer Canada just like the next person well still respecting the tax payers. wasting tax dollars on removing firearms from well vetted citizens of Canada is not the solution and not going after the real problem is only going to cost the Canadian tax payers more money after we see that this was a 1 billion plus failure.

I would love to hear your comments

    Great stuff, but those of us who are reading it are nearly all gun owners. We need to get this into the mainstream media but they aren’t interested. So much for government grants. It seems that only paid advertising will get the message across. Somehow, we must educate the masses on the difference in getting those crime guns off the street, and getting the sporting guns out of the gun safes of the law abiding. I suppose the police feel safer going after the law abiding rather than the criminal who won’t be co-operative and might even be nasty. They have been known to do bad things to good people. Keep up the good work.

    First off I am a member of the NFA, I want to thank you and everyone else for all your great work. Your are entirely right about this topic.
    I am a baby boomer, all of my friends were trained in the air force, Sea, or army cadets when I was in High school. Right across Canada. The Second World War had just ended 15 years before. I can still hear my Father telling me and my older brother that with any luck we wouldn`t have to go? He served as a Gunner in the Second World War. So I find it a strange question on the 2021 Canadian census survey, about military service or training. Are the Liberals finally starting to think we might be getting very upset and tired, with their lying and corruption. I can also remember my Father telling us that when they want to know who has the guns, you better hide one ; because it won`t belong, before you need it? He saw first hand what registration, and Hitler`s Gun Control did. The Liberals Gun control is the same as The Third Reich`s. That is very scary but; true. I come from a long line of family members who fought for Canada in The First and Second World Wars. My Uncle of 93 years who passed away a few years ago, said that he never fought for the Canada of today. That was very sad to hear. But; I know exactly what he meant. I can remember walking down city streets here in northern Ontario when NO Pal or any gun license was required, with my loaded 12 gauge shotgun, to go and shoot Geese on the other side of town. And no one would bat an eye when They saw you doing it. What happened Canada. Again, Keep up your very good work for the rest of Us. Jack

    Good read, totally agree that the dollar amounts they are saying will be nothing close to what they actually are. Even if you are not a shooter you should be concerned.


    Never trust a Liberal, voter or politician. Justin’s old man was anti firearm and he stared all this bs. By the way he wouldn’t fight for his own country during the Second World War did you know that. Justin and his party will disarm us as soon as they can, while doing nothing about violent crimminals walking our streets. Arresting the crimminals would probably be racist or againgst their constitutional rights. We must vote them out during the next election or kiss Canada goodbye.
