Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants to freeze the sale, importation and transfer of handguns in Canada, he told reporters today.

The big picture: This isn't a full ban, but it will significantly restrict the number of handguns in circulation, CBC reports.

  • "In other words, we're capping the market for handguns," he said at a press conference.
  • "Other than using firearms for sport shooting and hunting, there is no reason anyone in Canada should need guns in their everyday lives."
Between the lines: Canada has stricter gun laws than the U.S., and it does not guarantee a constitutional right to bear arms.

New rules were proposed in Canada's Parliament today that include, CBC reports:

  • Limits on the size of magazines
  • Harsher criminal penalties for trafficking guns
  • A "red flag" gun control law
  • Stripping firearm licenses from people involved with domestic violence
Flashback: Trudeau introduced rules banning the AR-15 and other semi-automatic rifles in 2020, after a mass shooting spree in Nova Scotia.

  • In March of 2022, Canada said it would add another year to an "amnesty" period while officials set up mandatory buyback programs, CBC reports.

Laws, regulations and bans only apply to law abiding citizens. Criminals and the mentally insane will always find a way.

You know what you call 1,000 politicians at the bottom of the ocean? A good fucking start.

This guy is a useless tool.

"What this means is that it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada," Trudeau said in a news conference.

Notice the word "legal" doesn't appear anywhere in his statement..

This will not address black market sales at all, it will only prevent legal ownership.. and we all know that legal owners are not the issue here.

imagine having to decide what's the last pistol you get to buy, ever.
There's a few wants on my current pistol wish list... FN 509 LS Edge, Taurus Raging Judge 6.5" barrel, Smith & Wesson 460 8" barrel '05-'11 iirc, a little Mossberg MC2 sc for the wife. Probably gonna cost an entire paycheck though. ☹

Also want a blingy gold plated Desert Eagle 50ae, cause if you're gonna get a big obnoxious gun, might as well go all out lol but this one probably costs close to the rest combined.

I blame the stupid know-nothing voters as much as the Liberal government for this shit.

The government knows that a proliferation ban on handguns won’t accomplish anything to reduce gun crime (which is already exceedingly rare in most of Canada). They’re doing it because they know that the average anti-gun Liberal voter is completely ignorant about the issue so, to them, it makes it look like they’re doing something to prevent gun crime.

In reality, they’re just using crime as a pretence to restrict access to firearms for law-abiding gun owners.

Getting a handgun here is quite the process already (ask me how I know). Almost nobody is going to jump through the hoops just so they can have a pistol that’s traceable to them so they can use it in a crime.

I disagree buddy. Historically when gOvErNmEnTs have done this it never ends well for the people! Name a single government that has gone down this road and let people live freely?

Soviet Union
China
Vietnam
Cambodia
Venezuela
Pretty much every country with extremely harsh lockdown's like Aus and England.

We still can't travel on a plane in our own country. We are the only country still be doing this.

Guns aren't just for sport and hunting. They know damn well it is the ONLY real check and balance to tyrannical gOVeRnMeNT!

They have only (so far) come for the guns that could be used against them.

And the black market will open in Canada. More guns. Just illegal and with no paperwork.

These politicians are all morons.
As of the latest data that I could find, there were 130 shooting deaths in all of Canada in a year.

130, out of a population of almost 40 million…

HuGe IsSuE!

I think you might have misunderstood my comment HB — or I didn’t state my position clearly, that has been known to happen. I agree with you completely!

And I think you misunderstood mine lol. I liked you comment.
9 out of 10. Times that is the libs motivation for doing anything. I just don't at all think it's the
case this time.

So I agree completely with your statement.

I think this time is nefarious and will end bad for us all if we obey

I haven’t finished my coffee yet. I’m going with that excuse.

I definitely think that it’s a gun grab enabled by the vast ignorance of a large part of the population regarding guns. We’re going to prevent people from buying firearms over ~130 deaths a year for the entire country? That doesn’t add up.

They’re pretending to solve a problem that we don’t have.
