Mr. Willy Floyd
Dear Mr. Floyd:
Thank you for your letter dated December 5, 2011, concerning the Firearms Act, and specifically the issue of licensing.
We are moving forward with the repeal of the long gun registry. The licensing system was not part of the gun registry introduced by the Liberal government in 1995. It is a long-standing system that has been in place for many decades.
As the matter you raise falls within the puriew of the Honourable Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety, I have taken the liberty of forwarding your correspondence to his office for information and consideration.
Please accept my best wishes.
Peter Van Loan, P.C., M.P.
c.c. The Honourable Vic Toews, P.C., Q.C., M.P.
