“Toronto legal clinic’s battle to restore Canada’s long-gun registry heats up!”
The Toronto Star article highlights our Clinic’s battle to reinstate the gun registry:
“The safety and security of women and their equal access to justice has not been properly considered in the drafting of this law,” said the clinic’s executive director Amanda Dale.
“The point we are going to make is that women are likely going to die because of this change in law,” she added.
In their case, Dale and the clinic argue that women are more likely than men to be injured or killed as a result of domestic violence. When firearms are used, legal rifles and shot guns are usually the weapon of choice.
No public funds are being used to support this challenge.
