Canada bans assault style weapons after mass shooting

Canada bans assault style weapons after mass shooting

PM Justin Trudeau said Friday that Canada is banning assault-style weapons with immediate effect. This comes on back of numerous mass shootings in the country, including the killing of 22 people in Nova Scotia on April 18 and 19. Trudeau said the government was on the verge of bringing in strict gun control measures in March, but the plans were halted owing to the Covid-19 pandemic hit.

The Nova Scotia shooter was unlicensed and used a smuggled gun from the US. None of what the PM just announced would have prevented that massacre. This is political opportunism and its shameful.

Zero death from assault style weapons: Ban assault weapons. Liberal thinking at its best. Totally not a power grab.

“The new ban would probably not have stopped Wortman from obtaining his weapons: he did not have a license to possess or purchase firearms, and police have said they believe the guns were obtained illegally in Canada and the United States.” - The Guardian “”Taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens does nothing to stop dangerous criminals who obtain their guns illegally,” Scheer said in a statement. “The vast majority of gun crimes are committed with illegally obtained firearms. Nothing the Trudeau Liberals announced today addresses this problem."” - ABC News None of the three articles go over what defines an “assault riffle”, mentioning “military-style”, yet saying the AR-15, a civilian grade riffle will also be banned. I’ll probably look for additional links but this seems more like virtue signaling if they are pushing this law off the back of the mass shooting that happened in Canada.

This will totally work, just like banning drugs and prohibition on alcohol did. Seriously though, they don't mean a ban because the government will still have them, they just mean to disarm the slaves... I mean subjects.... I mean peasants... I mean property.

Trudeau is right! This will bring their policy more in line with what we have in the US. Since the 1986 machine gun act, we have not been allowed to transfer new production assault rifles to the civilian population. Frankly, I didn’t realize they were still allowed in Canada! Makes me jealous! Glad their rights will be infringed just like ours! Oh, wait, just realized he was talking about “assault-style” rifles. My jealousy had me going there for a moment. He said, “These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time. There is no use and no place for such weapons in Canada…” I just made the stupid assumption they had allowed FNH M4’s on the market. Didn’t realize he was talking about AR-15 MSR’s (you know, the most popular competition and sporting rifle on the market since the ‘60’s) and such. Go figure… /sarc In reality, talk to ANYONE that has been in combat and ask them whether they would feel comfortable using a civilian semi-auto AR-15 in place of their real full auto assault rifles and squad automatics. The answer is an unequivocal, “NO!” AR-15’s are not “military-grade assault rifles…” (And neither are Ruger Mini 14’s mentioned in the article.)

Congratulations Canada, you played yourself. The shooter didn't obtain his weapon legally so by passing this you've only hurt the gun owning population who have never hurt a fly figuratively speaking

What do they consider an "assault" weapon? And it's not gonna do then much good anyway when they've got a fairly soft land border with America. It just means gun smugglers will charge more.
