Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that his administration will be working to ban the sale of handguns in Canada.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported that “New gun control legislation the federal government tabled today includes a national freeze on the purchase, sale, importation and transfer of handguns in Canada — the government’s most ambitious attempt yet to restrict access to firearms in this country. While the proposal falls short of a full ban on handguns, it would effectively limit the number of them in Canada.”
Trudeau’s move comes as Democrats in the United States are pushing gun control measures following the tragic shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
Totalitarians make their move
It is no secret that Justin Trudeau is a totalitarian who is more than willing to strip Canadians of their freedoms.
The anti-vaccine mandate trucker protests earlier this year demonstrated that Trudeau was the definition of a tyrant.
Now Trudeau is doubling down on tyranny by targeting the human rights of his citizens. While Canada may not have an equivalent to the 2nd Amendment, it is imperative that any good citizen be able to defend themselves.
Trudeau said, “We’re introducing legislation to implement a national freeze on handgun ownership. What this means is that it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada. In other words, we’re capping the market for handguns.”
Those Canadians who currently own handguns will be able to keep them. Any other Canadians seeking to protect themselves will have no legal options to obtain a weapon.
Trudeau’s announcement comes as President Joe Biden has also taken aim at handguns. While there is no way President Biden could ban handguns, it is still a reminder that our freedoms are under attack.
Time to defend freedom
Americans need to look at what is happening in Canada and realize what could be coming here next.
Democrats have introduced eight different gun control bills for review in the House Judiciary Committee. While not all of those bills will succeed, the Democrat-held House will do its best to erode the 2nd Amendment.
Republicans should also lend their voice to the cause of freedom in Canada and condemn the blatant restriction of freedoms by Justin Trudeau.
