Canada Bans 1,500 Models Of Semi-Automatic Guns, Effective Immediately

Sandy Malone

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the immediate ban of 1,500 models of guns after Nova Scotia shootings.

Ontario, CANADA – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Friday that he was banning all “military-grade assault weapons” from his country.

"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," Trudeau announced, according to ABC News.

The Prime Minister said the ban went into effect right away and applied to 1,500 models of various guns.

"Effective immediately, it is no longer permitted to buy, sell, transport, import or use military-grade assault weapons in this country," Trudeau said.

He said there would be a two-year amnesty period during which Canadians who already owned the newly-banned weapons would be expected to turn them in to the government, ABC News reported.

Trudeau promised gun owners would receive “fair compensation” for turning in the offending weaponry.

Canadian officials have called the gun grab an effort to “strengthen gun control” after 22 people were murdered in Nova Scotia in April during worst mass shooting in the country’s history, according to The Guardian.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) announced on Tuesday that the gunman was armed with two semi-automatic rifles and multiple semi-automatic pistols.

RCMP Superintendent Darren Campbell said that one of the shooter’s weapons could be described as a “military-style assault rifle,” The Guardian reported.

However, the gunman didn’t own any of his weapons legally, which means the new anti-gun measures being applied to the entire country would not have stopped the tragic murders.

Trudeau promised to ban guns during his campaign, and vowed to ban the Ruger Mini-14 rifle, which was the gun used in the 1989 murder of 14 women in Montreal, according to The Guardian.

The Prime Minister’s sudden restrictive ban on some firearms has gun-loving Canadians in an uproar, but the move did not require legislation and could be implemented through the cabinet.

“Justin Trudeau is using the current pandemic and the immediate emotion of the horrific attack in Nova Scotia to push the Liberals’ ideological agenda to make major firearms policy changes,” Conservative leader Andrew Scheer said after Trudeau’s announcement. “Taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens does nothing to stop dangerous criminals who obtain their guns illegally.”

A poll released by the Angus Reid Institute on Friday said that four out of five Canadians polled supported the new weapons ban, The Guardian reported.

Well, hope they like crime. It’ll be in the rise because of people making guns. Assuming some people there know how to build from scratch

I guess we will have a feckless government to our north now--one that will be overrun by communists, criminal gangs and those seeking to end all liberty in North America. This may well be our last stand against communism and tyranny in the world. We have the crime-ridden country to the south and the pansies up north. Sad.

Canada has pretty strict gun laws already, but despite that, they actually had a higher mass shooting rate than the US last year, and it looks like they're on pace to follow that up again this year. They had 3 mass shootings last year, while the US had 10, using the same definition. The US has 9 times the population of Canada though, so to be comparable, the US would have needed to have 27 mass shootings. Chances are, if things happen in Canada, as they have every other country in the world, the murder rate will be increasing in Canada, as it has in every other country in the world that implemented tough gun laws.

In regards to the Nova Scotia recent murders, the accused didn’t kill all those people with illegally obtained guns. He burned 9 of them.
He was also driving a RCMP look-alike car with all the proper decals AND was wearing an RCMP uniform. The accused is actually a denturist who obviously had mental issues and was not able to obtain a proper gun license. Therefore, he obtained all of his weapons illegally. That incident put the PM of Canada over the top and so, he decided that all legal guns owners should be punished.
To say, Canadian gun owners are pissed, is an understatement. Hence the photo you see, that I’ve posted above. Also, to the writer of this article Sandy Malone, Canada doesn’t have an i in it as your headline reads “Canadia”. Might want to use your spell-check before publishing your next headline or article.
Have a good day eh!
