The new bill seems to be in response to recent horrific mass shootings… in the United States.
This is typical of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Liberals in Canada in general.
There is this weird inferiority complex that is often masqueraded as moral superiority, but when the chips are down, Canada wants to have the same problems as the United States does and will fake it until they make it.
The attitude towards guns is a prime example of this.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Monday that his majority government, backed by the slightly-further left New Democratic Party, has put forward a bill to restrict any new handguns entering Canada, ban the sale and transfer of existing handguns, and a host of other restrictions including limiting magazines on long guns to just five rounds.
“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,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says at a news conference in Ottawa as he outlines government’s new gun control bill.#cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/cuexvvZ3mV

Bill C-21 was presented by Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino in the House of Commons Monday.
“The bill we just tabled represents a milestone amidst a long and difficult battle which takes place on our streets every single day,” Mendicino said at the news conference. “It’s a battle which has claimed too many lives, leaving empty chairs at the dinner table, and empty desks in our classrooms.”
They include taking away firearms licences from those involved in domestic violence or criminal harassment, increasing criminal penalties for smuggling and trafficking of firearms, and a “red flag” law which would require people deemed a threat to themselves or others to turn in their firearms to law enforcement…
…The government also said in a news release that it would require magazines for long guns to be changed so they can’t carry more than five rounds. Sales of large-capacity magazines would be banned.
It also would increase the maximum penalty for offences under the law, such as illegally owning, acquiring or manufacturing a firearm, from 10 years imprisonment to 14.

According to government officials a very limited number of people would be exempt from the new law including elite sport shooters, those with the authorization to carry such as valuable goods carriers, and those who may need to protect themselves from wild animals in remote wilderness locations.
Canadian critics lambasted the virtue-signaling move that targets law-abiding gun owners by piggy-backing on a tragedy that didn’t even happen in his own country.
Trudeau is exploiting a tragedy in another country to once again attack peaceful gun owners in Canada. This new crackdown will have zero impact on gang violence in our cities. Like all tyrants, he wants to completely disarm citizens.https://t.co/SPxUebLz2d

Just like gun crimes in the United States, most gun crime is committed by criminals who don’t obey the law.
Amazing, considering the majority of handgun crime in Canada is committed with unlawfully procured black-market hand guns. Surely this will do something. Maybe you should make murder double-super-mega-illegal, @JustinTrudeau. https://t.co/QHnkNGzDoq

Why can’t more people understand this?
Firearms laws in Canada are incredibly restrictive as it is.
First Justin Trudeau asked municipalities to ban handguns. Then he asked provinces to ban handguns.
Now he is capping ownership nationally, not banning them.
If a ban is what will work, why isn’t he doing it?
Because the real problem is with smuggled guns at the border.#cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/MkTmcW7lWQ

Trudeau’s Liberals are so concerned about gun crime that they’re… lowering sentences for gun crime?
While Trudeau and his team are talking about making communities safer with tougher gun laws, they still have Bill C-5 going through Parliament. This bill lowers sentences for a number of serious gun crimes including smuggling and trafficking. #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/zyXxTUHQgS

Make it make sense.
But this is Canada where things don’t make sense.
As a prime example, the new bill would also ban airsoft rifles and other toys that look like real guns.
“The new laws would also ban some toys that look like real guns, such as airsoft rifles. Last week Toronto police shot and killed a man carrying a pellet gun.”

Of course, Trudeau didn’t answer the one question on everyone’s minds… what the hell will this new handgun law actually accomplish other than punishing law-abiding gun owners?
Gee, why won’t he answer that one?
Because he’s just virtue signaling. He knows it’ll do absolutely nothing.
When asked if the new bill goes too far, Trudeau replied, “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.”
Reaction from south of the 49th parallel was just as critical of the new measures.
Because of a shooting in Texas, Justin Trudeau is taking bold action to restrict gun ownership in Canada. This makes sense

The dystopian future Trudeau is manifesting in Canada is coming to America if US citizens don’t get involved. https://t.co/1aFaxsTwK0

All the evidence you need of why you can NEVER give an inch to the left. Justin Trudeau and his far left authoritarian government just banned handguns. Never forget this. This is what the Democrats want too. If you give in to AR-15 bans, this is what comes next… TOTAL tyranny! pic.twitter.com/tLIMVtlubX

You know why he’s doing this, don’t you?
He was embarrassed when the unarmed Freedom Convoy rolled into town and made him look like a complete dufus for invoking martial law because he smeared them as violent racist bigots when they were peacefully protesting with bouncy castles, street hockey, and feeding the homeless.
This is just more of the same smear that Democrats use down in the States to tarnish law-abiding gun owners as crazy isurrectionists who want to overthrow the government at the drop of a hat. It’s a blatant and disgusting attack on his political rivals.
“We recognize that the vast majority of gun owners use them safely, and in accordance with the law,” said Trudeau. He then added, “But other than using firearms for sport shooting and for hunting, there is no reason anyone in Canada should need guns in their everyday lives.” (Emphasis added)
The vast majority of Canadians aren’t like our American cousins — many are more deferential to government and don’t really want to rock the boat. Besides, Canadian politics is pretty boring most of the time. Liberals — especially Trudeau — count on that apathy and lack of engagement.
Tyrant Trudeau’s government recently upheld a travel ban on unvaccinated Canadians and kept testing and masking requirements out of step with most of the world save his favorite country, China.
The government has also refused to remove the carbon tax from fuel as Canadians are paying through the nose for gas with a hefty chunk of that as tax. That’s because they want high gas prices. The pain is the point.
The Trudeau government is also poised to do the following:
- Introduce online censorship bills
- Bring in a “Centre for Immunization Surveillance”
- Decriminalize all illicit drugs
And you thought that some of those Democrat-run cities had turned into s-holes? What happens when you do this at a national level? It looks like we’re about to find out.
