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;
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.
