When the NDP had the chance to stand on the side of Alberta’s law-abiding firearm owners this week, they chose instead to side with Liberals in Ottawa. 

That’s what happened when they voted against a motion put forward by United Conservatives. 

The motion spoke out against Ottawa’s heavy handed and bureaucratic overreach targeting law-abiding firearm owners while ignoring the real sources of violent gun crime in Canada, such as guns illegally smuggled from the United States.

The motion also spoke in favour of Alberta appointing its own Chief Firearms Officer.

It’s a common sense motion that passed comfortably with the support of United Conservative MLAs, but the NDP voted unanimously against it.

It’s no surprise really. The NDP have a long history of having the backs of politicians in Ottawa than workers in Alberta

United Conservatives have been taking action in support of Alberta’s law-abiding firearm owners and to more readily target prosecutions of violent criminals, such as:

  • The creation of the Alberta Firearms Advisory Committee to explore ways to better assert provincial jurisdiction
  • The creation of the Alberta Firearms Examination Unit to speed up testing of guns used in criminal investigations
  • Appointing Alberta’s own Chief Firearms Officer

Instead of supporting these initiatives, the NDP are too worried about impressing their increasingly out of touch far-left insiders.
