Oh, Canada! Asswipe Trudeau bans "assault" gun and others 1500 of them. Effective immediately.

  • What a pathetic cunt.

    OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced the federal government is immediately placing a ban on 1,500 models and variants of certain assault-style weapons that have been used in mass shootings in Canada and abroad.


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


    The prime minister described the sweeping regulations as “closing the market” on these weapons in Canada.


    This is being done by changing the classification of these guns in Canada, moving them from non-restricted or restricted class, to “prohibited.”


    However, the changes won’t outlaw these weapons completely in Canada, as the government will be offering current owners of these guns the ability to grandfather in their ownerships, allowing them to still possess these guns under specific terms. Owners will also have the ability to be compensated through a buyback program, though the details of both options have yet to be outlined.


    The prime minister spoke about how every Canadian can remember the day they realized how “a man with a gun could irrevocably alter our lives for the worse.”


    Citing a list of mass shootings in Canada, Trudeau said they “shape our identity” and “stain our conscience,” and are happening more and more often.


    The prime minister diverted from his usual daily COVID-19 updates to make the announcement alongside Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, Justice Minister David Lametti, and Public Safety Minister Bill Blair on Parliament Hill.


    Blair, a former police chief, has been stickhandling the federal government’s gun policy and he said that “from this moment forward, the number of these guns will only decrease in Canada.”


    Though, some gun control advocates are already voicing concern about the government allowing current owners to keep their guns.


    “Allowing grandfathered weapons would be a huge concession to the gun lobby. In terms of public safety benefits, there is a world of difference between a total ban and a partial ban. A non-mandatory buy-back program could mean that it will take generations to get these weapons off our streets and out of our communities,” said Heidi Rathjen, a Polytechnique graduate and coordinator of PolyRemembers in a statement.


    The ban includes guns that have been used in past Canadian shootings, such as:


    the Ruger Mini-14 that was used in the Ecole Polytechnique massacre in Montreal in 1989, and which the government estimates there are 16,860 currently in circulation in Canada;

    the M14 semi-automatic that was used in the 2014 Moncton shooting, which the government estimates there are 5,230 in Canada;

    the Beretta CX4 Storm that was used in the Dawson College shooting, which the government estimates there are approximately 1,510 currently in circulation; and

    the CSA-VZ-58 that the gunman attempted to use in the Quebec mosque shooting, which the government says there are 11,590 in Canada.

    Another one of the firearms on Canada’s list of federally prohibited weapons is the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, which was used by the gunman who killed 50 people at a Christchurch, New Zealand mosque in 2019, as well as in other mass shootings in the United States including the Sandy Hook and Las Vegas massacres. A handful of similar models are also on the list, as well as guns with muzzle energy exceeding 10,000 joules and those with calibres exceeding 20 millimetres, such as grenade launchers.


    Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said these weapons are “designed for only one purpose: to kill people, and to look like they can kill people.”


    “The culture around their fetishization makes our county inherently more dangerous for the people most vulnerable,” she said.


    Less than a month after the 2019 Christchurch attack, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her government outlawed most automatic and semi-automatic weapons as well as components to modify existing weapons. Trudeau was scheduled to speak with Ardern on Friday.


    2-YEAR AMNESTY, WITH CONDITIONS

    Noting that the “vast majority” of gun owners use them safely and lawfully, the government is putting in place a two-year amnesty period to protect those with these guns from criminal liability until they can take steps to comply with the new rules.


    Specifically, Lametti said that there will be an amnesty order put into the Criminal Code effective Friday and lasting until April 30, 2022 for Canadians who currently lawfully own these newly prohibited firearms, giving them “a reasonable timeframe to come into compliance.”


    During this time they can be legally exported with a valid permit, and business owners can return them to their manufacturer.


    However, any current owners cannot use these guns any longer in the interim, nor can these firearms be imported or sold to individuals in Canada. These guns need to be safely stored, only transferred or transported for the purpose of deactivation or surrendering the gun to police if the owner seeks to do so before the buyback program is in place, Lametti said.



    The justice minister said there will be an exception for Indigenous peoples exercising a hunting record under Section 35 of the Constitution Act, which recognizes Indigenous rights; as well as an exception for people who use one of the now-banned guns to hunt to feed themselves or their families, until they can acquire a “suitable replacement.’


    “We are asking that no one attempt to surrender their firearm while social distancing because of COVID-19 is being practiced… At the end of the amnesty period, all firearm owners will have to be in compliance with the prohibition,” Lametti said.


    The move has been cabinet-approved and the reclassification of these weapons can be done through an order-in-council rather than legislation, though future gun control measures are expected to be introduced.


    'MORE THAN THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS'

    In the wake of the mass shooting that killed 22 people in Nova Scotia earlier this month, Trudeau had said he intended on pushing ahead with the Liberal election promise of banning military-style assault weapons.


    Referencing this month’s Nova Scotia rampage, Trudeau said the victims’ families “deserve more than thoughts and prayers.”


    “This chapter in our history cannot be rewritten, but what happens next is up to us. We can stick to thoughts and prayers alone, or we can unite as a country and put an end to this,” Trudeau said on Friday.


    On Friday, Trudeau restated his position that guns designed to kill the most people in the shortest amount of time have no place in Canada.


    He has previously said that the federal government was “on the verge” of moving ahead on gun control legislation before the pandemic caused Parliament to suspend.


    LEGISLATION COMING, TORIES BALK

    Expected in future legislation is a buyback program for military-style assault rifles purchased legally in Canada, tougher safe-storage laws, and strengthened penalties for smuggling guns into Canada. The government has also committed to crack down on handguns.


    Blair said that the federal government is also going to bring in “red flag laws” allowing law enforcement to remove firearms from dangerous situations.


    In the last Parliament, the Liberals made changes to the rules related to firearm ownership, including broadening background checks for gun owners, toughening rules around the transportation of handguns, and increasing record-keeping requirements for the sale of firearms. It also repealed changes made by the previous Conservative government and the federal Tories have vowed to reverse these changes.


    Trudeau called Friday’s announcement the “next step” in their gun control policy, and said he’s already spoke with other party leaders about future legislation.


    In a statement reacting to the announcement, outgoing Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer accused Trudeau of “using the current pandemic and the immediate emotion of the horrific attack in Nova Scotia to push the Liberals’ ideological agenda and make major firearms policy changes. That is wrong.”


    Scheer criticized Trudeau for not waiting until the House of Commons resumes full sittings to take up this debate.


    “Taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens does nothing to stop dangerous criminals who obtain their guns illegally. The reality is, the vast majority of gun crimes are committed with illegally obtained firearms. Nothing the Trudeau Liberals announced today addresses this problem,” Scheer said in the statement.

  • “Taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens does nothing to stop dangerous criminals who obtain their guns illegally.

    Would say illegally obtained hand guns, usually from the USofA, wielded by those who have been out in the sun for to long are more of a danger.

    "There's a big difference between me and Justin Trudeau.

    I believe that you make communities safer by supporting law enforcement and cracking down on criminals. Justin Trudeau does not support either of these policies and chooses time after time to mislead and divide Canadians.


    In response to a convicted criminal committing a horrific attack with illegal weapons, Trudeau ignores illegal gun smugglers and is soft on criminals who commit domestic violence - that can tragically be a precursor to murder. Instead, the Trudeau Liberals hope to confuse Canadians with misleading claims about law-abiding firearms owners and their property.


    To politicize a tragedy like this is beneath the dignity of the office of Prime Minister. It is an insult to the victims and a disgusting attack on the rights and freedoms of all Canadians.

    This would be true even if the Prime Minister’s plan would actually save lives. The fact that it won’t save a single life makes it even worse.


    Let’s be clear – this isn’t about preventing crime. It’s about dividing Canadians. They want to divide rural versus urban Canadians. They want to divide Canadians who hunt or enjoy sports shooting versus those who don't. In the heels of a tragedy the Liberals use misleading and loaded terms like "assault-styled" to try and scare people and convince them to turn on their neighbours or co-workers who the Liberals claim are a risk to public safety.


    I won't let the Trudeau Liberal mislead and divide Canadians on the topic of firearms ownership anymore. I am going to call out their lies and their divisive tactics.

    And when it comes to public safety - I have a better plan.


    Part one is to stop criminals from getting illegal guns by finally going after the criminal networks that smuggle weapons into our country from the United States. We have a strict system of screening, training and licensing that does a good job of stopping criminals from legally buying guns. Canadians need to know that the problem rests with the border. It is still too easy for gangs to smuggle and deal in illegal guns. I have a plan to stop this.


    The second part of a plan to tackle gun violence is to finally take real action against domestic violence. You may wonder why this is part of this plan. It’s for a very simple reason. We have seen time and again that the criminals who commit attacks of violence almost always start off by abusing their spouse or partner. For far too long we have let these terrible people who commit domestic violence off with a slap on the wrist. This not only does a massive disservice to their innocent victims who are left to suffer – it also puts the broader community at risk. It’s time for tough mandatory minimum sentences for those who assault their spouse or partner. It’s also time to make it much easier for victims to secure protective orders. I have worked on these issues for over a decade and will make it happen as Prime Minister.�

    I

    t’s time to get serious about violent crime. It's time to stop the Liberal approach of dividing Canadians.

    The current Prime Minister isn't serious. I will be."
