Even a leading anti-gun advocacy group is unhappy with Justin Trudeau's gun ban after it was discovered that it has been made easily reversible.

This legislation, they complain, would allow pro-gun governments to roll back the legislation that the current Trudeau government enacted, according to CTV News.

Writing to the controversial Liberal Public Safety Minister Bill Blair, the group urged the minister to create a mandatory buyback program for "assault style guns"—a notoriously undefined term.

On Wednesday, Blair was discovered to have confused a grenade launcher and a historic cannon, throwing into question his judgement on this matter.

The Trudeau government began the process of banning some 1,500 models of guns as they were not, in their view, supposed to be in the hands of ordinary people.

The sweeping gun ban includes historic pieces and antiques, with Blair saying that the guns were too widely available with guns being used to "harm Canadians."

So far, the gun ban continues to receive widespread backlash from Canadians.

An online petition against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Order in Council decision which banned over 1,500 firearms has become the most signed official petition in Canadian history.

Petition e-2574 became open for signature on May 5, 2020 and has already received more than 180,000 signatures. The petition closes on September 2, 2020.

The petition asks the government to "scrap" the Order in Council that took place on May, 1 2020. It also suggests that the government instead pass legislation that targets criminals and stops firearms from being smuggled into the country.
