INT’L – GUN CONTROL – Canada introduces weapons bill that would allow cities to ban guns

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Tuesday called for sweeping measures, amendments to an existing gun control law, that would permit municipalities to ban handguns and institute a new federal buy-back program. “You can’t fight gun violence or any violence on just one front,” Trudeau said during a press conference. “You can’t fight it without addressing its root causes.” The legislation not only includes increased penalties for established illegal activities like gun trafficking but tighter restrictions on importing ammunition and increased policing authority. The bill backs municipalities in creating bylaws that make the possession, storage, and transportations of handguns illegal.
