Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government introduced legislation Monday to freeze the sale of handguns in the country.
“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 press briefing announcing the bill.
Canadians would be able to keep and use the handguns they already own, with the ban effectively acting as a cap on the approximately 1.1 million registered handguns in Canada.
The bill would also require long-gun magazines to be altered so they carry no more than five bullets, and it would create a “red flag” law that allows law enforcement to confiscate firearms when a court deems a gun owner to pose a risk to him- or herself or others. The legislation is expected to pass the country’s Parliament. (Read more from “Trudeau Moves to ‘Freeze’ Handgun Sales in Canada” HERE)
