Liberals Plan to ban, confiscate guns
  • 13 Dec 2019 PM Justin Trudeau has given Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Bill Blair his Mandate Letter:
With support from the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, implement our firearms policy commitments, including to:
  • Amend Canada’s firearms laws to ban all military-style assault rifles, with an associated buyback program and two-year amnesty;
  • Work with provinces and territories to give municipalities the ability to further restrict or ban handguns;
  • Update firearms licence requirements for ammunition imports, strengthen safe-storage laws, develop a mechanism for suspending licences for those who pose a danger to themselves or others, continue to build a national system that allows for the flagging of bulk purchases of firearms, impose stronger penalties for gun smuggling, provide the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) with additional resources to detect and stop gun smuggling, and work to limit by regulation the glorification of violence in firearms marketing and sales; and
  • Continue to protect the rights of hunters and farmers. There will not be a return of the long-gun registry.
