    we referred to research that had been conducted mainly by the Institut national de santé publique, which did that as part of a brief submitted to the House of Commons Standing Committee on a previous bill, Bill C-391.

    I cannot tell you about it in detail, but we trust the institute's work.

    He repeated Étienne Blais's study's wrong conclusion that the Firearms Act had saved 500 lives since 1999 due to the reduction in suicide.

    I haven't sent a 'brief', but two more letters already this week, and probably another letter today, to SECU MPs.

    one of those 4 is just weird. Stephen Corber seems to be advocating for "rural carry". So not all anti

    Isn't at least one of the ones from antis basically opposed to the bill? Like they pretty much say bring back a registry or dump this waste of a bill?

    [quoted from CGN]

    Public health directors from Quebec brief

    Recommendations
    Given the above, Quebec’s public health directors applaud the bill for making the criteria for
    granting a licence more strict and increasing firearms traceability. But that is not enough. The
    following are the most important improvements necessary:

    1) apply the obligation to retain proof of sale to firearms sales and transfers between
    individuals;
    2) centralize proofs of sale or transfer in a national database so that police officers can
    consult them rapidly;
    3) seriously reconsider re-establishing a national registry that includes long guns; and
    4) prohibit to the extent possible access to assault rifles for recreational purposes.

    In Quebec, it is estimated that nearly one third of firearms sales take place between
    individuals.14 We believe that a measure to require not only businesses, but also individuals to
    retain proof of sale or transfer of firearms is appropriate. This would enable the creation of a
    traceability index and ensure that the seller carefully verifies that the buyer has a valid licence
    at the time the firearm is transferred, as proposed in Bill C-71.

    If a national registry for nonrestricted
    firearms is not created, police forces should, at a minimum, have quick and easy
    access to proofs of sale when responding to real or suspected crisis situations.
