Canada Proposes Gun Sale Freeze

Gun Sales To Be FROZEN Under New Government Act

( – Canada’s ultra-liberal premier is using recent mass shootings to crack down on gun owners. This week he announced new restrictions on handguns, and promised to push forward with an “assault weapon” ban passed two years ago. Gun rights advocates are already pushing back, but the momentum looks to be against them.

On May 31, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a proposed “freeze” on handgun ownership. Trudeau said he plans to bring in a new law that would make it impossible to “buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada,” saying that, apart from hunting and sport shooting, there’s no reason for Canadians to have a gun. So far, there’s been no mention of confiscating existing handguns, but Trudeau says his government is “capping” the number of pistols in the country.

As well as the handgun freeze, Trudeau said he plans to move forward with a buyback program for “assault-style weapons.” This ban was passed two years ago, in the wake of the worst mass shooting in Canadian history, but so far nothing has been done about it because Canadian law doesn’t actually define the type of weapons it applies to. Now, Trudeau wants to add mandatory buybacks to that legislation and start enforcing it.

Trudeau went on to list a range of other restrictions that will be included in the new law, most of them taken straight from the wishlists of US anti-gun advocates. Magazines will be restricted to a 5-round capacity (down from 10) and new red flag laws will be introduced. Canada is now well down the road to a total gun ban.
