PM Trudeau outlines new gun-control bill that would implement national handgun freeze – May 30, 2022

May 30, 2022 at 2:53 pm  Federal, Politics

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks with reporters in Ottawa following his government’s tabling of new legislation on gun control. He is joined by federal ministers Marco Mendicino (public safety), David Lametti (justice), Marci Ien (women and gender equality and youth), and Bill Blair (emergency preparedness), as well as several victims of gun violence. Among the measures proposed in Bill C-21 are the implementation of a national freeze on the importing, buying, selling, and transferring of handguns; the revoking of firearms licenses of those involved in acts of domestic violence or criminal harassment; and the imposing of increased criminal penalties for gun smuggling and trafficking. Facing questions from reporters, the prime minister is also asked about the final report from former Supreme Court of Canada justice Louise Arbour on misconduct in the Canadian Armed Forces.
