Demand Gun Rights for Canadian Women!
The Trudeau Government, showing yet again their concern for women’s equality is superficial, is financially incentivizing the provinces to ban handguns: Sign PetitionSign Petition
As a law-abiding Canadian woman this angers me. We need LESS gun control in this country, not more.
Women are weaker than men. This presents a power differential that puts women at risk. Any woman who has attended a martial arts self-defense course is told: “it’s fun to learn these moves, but if you are attacked by a man your only option is to run. A man will overpower you ten times out of ten.”
Instead of banning handguns, we women demand gun rights! Those of us who live in the country or have ever had to wait over an hour for the police to show up know that we deserve the right to protect ourselves.
Instead of banning handguns, we demand concealed carry for Canadian women!
Instead of banning handguns, we demand self-defense law reform in Canada, so law-abiding women are able to protect themselves and their children from male criminals!
In 2014, Kevin Vickers successfully used a 9mm handgun to protect those on Parliament Hill from an active shooter who wasn’t legally allowed to posses any firearm.
Criminals will always find a way to get handguns. Canadians a self-reliant people in a vast and wild land where danger and risk must be balanced with responsibility. As a Canadian woman, I demand the responsibility and the right to self-defense.
