Canadian PM Justin Trudeau set to ban handgun sales and transfers

The school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, last week is being exploited by opportunistic politicians in the U.S. Unfortunately, that same cancer has spread to Canada.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau proposed a new prohibition on the sale of handguns as well as increased restrictions on other weapons, The Hill reported. He made this announcement Monday and less than a week after the shooting.

“Unfortunately, the reality is in our country [gun violence] is getting worse and has been getting worse over the past years,” Trudeau said in his speech announcing the proposed measures. “We need only look south of the border to know that if we do not take action, firmly and rapidly, it gets worse and worse and more difficult to counter.”

The details of his proposal mimic actions by Australia in 1996 and New Zealand in 2019 in the aftermath of similar tragedies. Trudeau’s so-called “freeze” would eventually limit the total number of those firearms within Canada.

The prime minister also pushed for restricting magazine capacities as well as issuing so-called red flag laws that prevent certain individuals from purchasing weapons. He doubled down on his focus on confiscating “assault rifles” through a supposed buyback program.

Politicians stateside were just as eager to stand on the bodies of the two adults and 19 children killed by the crazed gunman for the purpose of imposing their own new restrictions. Before the nation even had a chance to catch its breath following the May 24 incident, President Joe Biden was urging more gun control that same day.

“As a nation, we have to ask, when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God’s name, will we do what we know in our gut what needs to be done?” Biden said, according to Fox News.

The details are still emerging to paint the picture of what went wrong that day to allow such a tragedy, but politicians are wasting no time using the pain for another power grab. Unfortunately, liberals play the same dirty game — regardless of which side of the border they’re on.
