Canada announces immediate ban on ‘military-grade’ assault weapons

TORONTO — The Canadian government on Friday announced an immediate ban on some 1,500 makes and models of “military-grade” assault weapons, including two models used by the gunman who killed 22 people last month in rural Nova Scotia during the country’s deadliest mass shooting.

Thank the Lord Trump is in office right now. We have now seen how weak and timid the US citizens can be during cold and flu season.

Will any Canadians protest?

Lot of Canadians winter in the same RV resort that we do. 100% sheeple that don't understand why we can have guns at all.

Wasn’t Canada founded by French and traitors?

Did they ever report if the guy purchased them legally? Was he on the list not allowed to have them and was allowed to buy one?

From the linked story above.
Police have said that Gabriel Wortman, the 51-year-old assailant in the mass shooting in Nova Scotia, did not have a license to own a firearm in Canada.
I will never apologize for being an American.

From a Canadian on AR15

“He had no gun license. He murdered a cop and took her pistol and used that. He also illegally got guns in the US and smuggled them in. So this new law has as usual...0 effect on anything”

Lets look at the facts. No license to purchase. Cop gun stolen. Smuggled guns from USA. Sounds like 3 strikes against Canada for not enforcing there current laws! How is another law supposed to work when they cant enforce there current ones?

Maybe they ought to make it a crime to commit criminal acts...
