Canada to Freeze Purchases and Transfers of Handguns

By Democracy Now

HAVANA TIMES – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has proposed new gun control laws in the wake of mass shootings in the United States. On Monday, Trudeau introduced legislation that would require most owners of military-style assault weapons to turn over their firearms to a government buyback program. Trudeau also announced new regulations limiting access to handguns.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: “What this means is that it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada. In other words, we’re capping the market for handguns. … We need less gun violence. We cannot let the guns debate become so polarized that nothing gets done. We cannot let that happen in our country.”

  • The Canadian Liberal Party has regurgitated legislation which they have proposed in the past, but failed to enact. Thus they have been able to receive Kudos for the same action several times. Although the mass shootings (of which I understand there have been 209 this year in 153 days, occurred in the US not in Canada, Trudeau however is ever willing to piggy back on the pain of others in order to appease his narcissistic ego.
