Trudeau’s Gun Ban Sparks Panic Among U.S. Conservatives: ‘Dystopian Future’

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau introduced new legislation on Monday that would put a national freeze on the ownership of handguns if it passes the Canadian parliament later this year. The country already has bans on more than 1,500 types of “assault-style” firearms. The prime minister said, “What this means is that it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada.” Trudeau also said, “as a further part of the legislation, we’re also fighting gun smuggling and trafficing by increasing maximum criminal penalties and providing more tools for law enforcement to investigate firearm crimes, and we’ll require the permanent alteration of long gun magazines so they can never hold more than five rounds.”
