Trudeau Is Again Considering Ending Lawful Handgun Ownership in Canada, National Post Says

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is again considering ending lawful handgun ownership across the country, the National Post reported yesterday, without saying where it got the information.


Prohibitions and confiscations targeting federally licensed handgun users is an option of "last resort."

Why It Matters

Trudeau and his Liberal Party are the most hostile political force against Canada's millions of responsible firearm users.
He had previously ruled out national handgun confiscation, even as he pledged new crackdowns on honest gun owners and businesses.
As Trudeau works to restrict the government-controlled firearm market, gun users are increasingly looking to get their gear on the free market.
