MP doesn’t like shortened debate around gun control bill

OTTAWA, ON- Rachel Blaney says she’s frustrated with Bill C-71. The North Island-Powell River MP doesn’t like how the gun control measure has been debated.

The bill was introduced on Monday and the house passed a time allocation Tuesday. Blaney says it wasn’t given enough time for a proper discussion:

Introduced by the Liberals, Bill C-71 would tighten the country’s gun laws with “enhanced” background checks and new record-keeping rules for sellers.

The new background checks would involve the RCMP taking a look at a person’s entire life, rather than just the last five years, when considering an application for a gun licence.

Bill C-71 passed a second reading yesterday and was moved to committee. Blaney says she supported that because going to committee gives more time to discuss the bill:
