Trudeau Gun Ban Targets 200,000 Long Guns: Global News
June 20, 2019
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will order hunters, farmers and sport shooters to surrender about 200,000 of their firearms if re-elected, Global News reportedtoday, citing Bill Blair, the minster for confiscation.
The estimate covers what Blair called “assault-style weapons,” Global said, citing Blair speaking to reporters this morning. It would be the biggest single firearm seizure in Canadian history.
It means at least some 90,000 so-called “Non-restricted” rifles and shotguns will be forced away from their owners in case of a Trudeau election victory.
Trudeau’s Liberal Party also plans to make it easier for provinces and cities to ban handguns from federally licensed shooters, Global reported, citing Blair.
The prime minister is proposing to criminalize honest men and women and as he seeksre-election. Opinion polls show Liberal voters are the most hostile to firearm owners and support bans.
Trudeau’s campaign promise undermines Canada’s system for licensing and registering firearm owners and the federal police who run the program.
It also breaks a key Liberal promise made in promoting Bill C-71 to let the police make decisions on firearm classifications “without political influence.”
