Petition against rifle ban closes with 174,000 signatures

A petition against the Canadian government’s proposal to ban “military-style assault rifles” through an Order in Council garnered 174,810 signatures during the two months it was open to the public.

Originally started by Brad Manysiak of Medicine Hat, Alberta and sponsored by his MP Glen Motz, the petition’s main issue with the ban was that it wouldn’t go through the House of Commons.

The petition calls the plan to pass the ban through an Order in Council “an egregious overreach of executive authorities, bypassing the democratic process of the House and the elected representatives of Canadians.”
