Trudeau says assault-style firearm ban coming in days, offers few details
https://globalnews.ca/news/6887958/canada-assault-rifle-ban/

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the government will share details within days of its plan to ban what it has been describing since the fall election as “assault-style” firearms.

The term is not a legal classification of guns in Canada but is commonly used to refer to automatic or semi-automatic centrefire weapons capable of firing large amounts of ammunition in a very short time.

Trudeau was asked during a briefing with journalists in Ottawa on Thursday about a report published by the Globe and Mail newspaper that said the government plans to issue a new list of banned high-power firearms including the notorious AR-15 weapon used in recent mass shootings in the U.S.

“We have made a firm commitment to Canadians to ban military assault-style weapons because, in Canada, there’s no room for weapons made to kill large numbers of people,” Trudeau said.

“We were almost ready to announce measures to strengthen gun control when Parliament was suspended because of the pandemic and we will be making announcements in days to come and will give more details on this then.”

Canada has experienced several mass shootings in recent years in which the gunmen used semi-automatic weapons among their cache of firearms.

Most recently, the gunman behind a horrific shooting spree in rural Nova Scotia used two semi-automatic rifles and several semi-automatic handguns.

Nova Scotia RCMP Superintendent Darren Campbell has said one of the weapons “could be described” as a military-style assault rifle.

The gunman in that spree shot 13 people and nine others died in fires, according to RCMP.

In 2017, a gunman also opened fire in a Quebec City mosque killing six and injuring 19.

He fired 48 shots in 90 seconds in that massacre.

One of the guns he used was a semi-automatic rifle with two 30-bullet magazines, which are illegal.

And in 2014, another gunman used a semi-automatic rifle and a shotgun in a shooting spree that killed three RCMP officers and injured two others in Moncton, N.B.

It’s not yet clear whether the specific guns used in those cases would be among those banned.

In Canada, automatic weapons are already prohibited except when grandfather rights apply but a range of semi-automatic firearms can be legally bought, sold and owned.

Among those semi-automatic firearms reportedly set to be banned are the AR-15,  Ruger Mini-14, CZ Scorpion, the Swiss Arms Classic Green, the Beretta Cx4 Storm, the Robinson Armament XCR and the Sig Sauer SIG MCX, along with other similar types.

A report by CBC News said 11 firearms in total will be banned.

But A.J. Somerset, a former gunnery instructor with the Canadian Forces and gun policy expert, said he’s concerned the approach the government appears to be taking won’t be the most effective route.

Rather than adding certain types of guns to the list of banned firearms, Somerset says the government should amend the Firearms Act to prohibit guns based on their features — a move he says would prevent new models of guns similar to those banned from entering the market to take their place.

The upper receivers of M16, AR-10, AR-15 and M4 pattern firearms will be prohibited devices.

The Mini-14 is banned. Hopefully that will open the eyes of the FUDD's down here in the states. Their FUDD gun(s) is next if the gun grabbers have their way.

And we now get to see Canada use their registration list to go after gun owners and force them to turn the guns in. Funny how people kept saying the registration lists won't be used for gun confiscation.

What about self-built arms?
This is not just a ban BTW. It is confiscation.

More on the story and list of rifles.  Suggests handgun restrictions next.  Looks like they already had a 5rd mag limit. Crazy.

I only watched a few minutes of this, because Luke yapping drives me nuts.
