Feds undercut their own momentum on gun bill, say observers
A gun control group calls on the House Public Safety Committee studying the sweeping Liberal firearms bill to address ‘misinformation’ about which guns would be banned by recent proposed amendments. Heidi Rathjen says she's worried the confusion will erode public support for the bill.
Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino tells reporters on Dec. 14, the last day of the fall session of Parliament, that the government has 'heard loud and clear from hunters and Indigenous peoples' about their concerns with proposed amendments to the firearms bill.
