Miller seconds Motion 439 – Responsible Firearms Reform

Ottawa, ON – Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, today seconded MP Cheryl Gallants’ Motion 439 to privatize the functions of the Canadian Firearms Registration System.

“I am pleased to support my colleague with this initiative which will benefit not only law-abiding sportsmen and farmers, but all taxpayers as well” said Miller. MP Gallant has proposed a common sense solution that will eliminate bureaucratic red tape and expense and I am behind this Motion 100%” he added.

Motion 439 was introduced to the House of Commons today, April 15th. This Motion would;

· Eliminate the costly duplication of having each province manage a separate bureaucracy to administer the firearms registration system.

· Law-abiding sportsmen, hunters and farmers would benefit by having one set of rules rather than the provincial patchwork that currently exists.

· By privatizing the functions, as a civilian agency the office would become administrative and service oriented, to the benefit of all Canadians.

· Law enforcement professionals’ valuable time can be re-directed away from paperwork to more useful tasks such as front-line policing.
