Canada Prime Minister Bans ‘Assault Weapons,’ Announces 2 Year Amnesty to Turn Them In

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hasn’t wasted the crisis presented by last month’s spree shooting in Nova Scotia in which a man dressed as a police officer murdered 22 people over 12 hours. As the Guardian reports, Prime Minister Zoolander had this to say earlier today about his shiny new “assault weapons” ban . . .

“These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time. There is no use and no place for such weapons in Canada,” said the prime minister. “Effective immediately, it is no longer permitted to buy, sell, transport, import or use military-grade assault weapons in this country.”

This is what happens in a country without a Second Amendment. Note that no vote has taken place to enact the ban that covers 1500 different models and variants. As even the assiduously anti-gun Guardian notes . . .

The new ban would probably not have stopped [Nova Scotia killer Gabriel] Wortman from obtaining his weapons: he did not have a license to possess or purchase firearms, and police have said they believe the guns were obtained illegally in Canada and the United States.

Not that a detail like that really matters when you have a population to disarm.

From the CBC . . .

“As of today, the market for assault weapons in Canada is closed,” Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said. “Enough is enough. Banning these firearms will save Canadian lives.”

Trudeau said there will be a two-year amnesty period to allow people who already own these firearms to comply with the ban. Trudeau promised to pass legislation in the coming months to provide “fair compensation” to people who own these firearms.

The Liberal Party promised some sort of buyback program in the last election, something that could cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.

Canada has a long gun registry (though it was mostly an expensive failure), so finding at least some of the newly outlawed firearms will be easier for the Canucks than it was for the Kiwis.

          Above all, you have got to be one stupidest fools (as if there weren’t enough democratic idiots in Congress) that I have had the misfortune to see.
          If you’re that stupid, ie “the beto” to think U.S. citizens will do as Australia and New Zealand did, then the revolt against the British a couple hundred years ago will pale in comparison as to what the U. S. citizen will do.

  3. avatar Mark N. says:

    My understanding is that, under a conservative government, Canada finally did away with its gun registry as a billion dollar mistake. The only problem was that the RCMP did not destroy its records despite being ordered to do so.

    Can the Prime Minister legally take this action without a vote of their legislative body? I know a bill was pending, but I had not heard that there had been any action taken on it, perhaps due to Covid-19.

    1. avatar ColdNorth says:

      The government can do way too much under “Orders in Council”, and in this case they can do what they just did. Additional changes to legislation would have to go through Parliament, and they will likely start doing that when this current closure ends.

      1. avatar Bart says:

        I didn’t think Canadians were allowed to own machine guns anyway. That is what military assault weapons are.

        I thought rifles were pretty much limited to pitiful 5 round magazines anyway. Five rounds isn’t much of an “assault weapon”.

        I don’t think many militaries depend on Mini-14s with 5 shot magazines.

        Trudeau is a lying sack of shit, a stooge of the globalist oligarchs, and an enemy of the Canadian people.

        1. avatar B says:

          You probably meant to say “Assault Rifles”. The military doesn’t have Assault Weapons. The military does have Assault Rifles and Battle Rifles and different types of Machine Guns, all with distinct characteristics.

          Assault Weapons are a political term coined by the media and anti-gun morons that don’t know the difference between a semiautomatic firearm with practical features and military full-auto capable equipment.

          But I definitely agree that they just got “Canucked” in the ass.

          Having said that, We Americans need to remember that our 2nd Amendment Constitutional right to Keep and Bear Arms are not to be Infringed Upon by its Government… ever!

          That’s ALL ARMS, regardless of type, make, or capability to include the advancement in technology as the rest of the world progresses too.

          But look what’s happened over the past generations.

          Freedom is only protected by its competent ability to equalize and overcome tyrannical slavery through effective use of such arsenals.

          In today’s world, that means PEACE THROUGH SUPERIOR FIREPOWER. And anyone who understands this knows that it doesn’t just mean gunpowder related tools.

          Yup. Unless something bans all semiauto rifles, it’s just banning scary looking things. And you can get around that.

          You can get around the semi-auto part pretty easy too if there’s enough market for it.

    “Assault weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully-automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons –anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun– can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.” Josh Sugarmann

    1. avatar ropingdown says:

      If it isn’t full auto, select-fire, then it isn’t an assault weapon, which is simply a light assault rifle. I blame the gun press for running with the assault weapon tag, just to juice up sales. The nomenclature generates sales right until things are banned. I suppose the strategy is to sell lots of them, then sell the next cool thing after they’re banned.

      By the way, did this most recent Canadian use an AR-15 design rifle?

      They arrested Americans for going to church and nobody fought back.
      They arrested Americans for having parties at their homes and nobody fought back.
      They arrested restaurant owners for seating customers and nobody fought back.
      They fined healthy Americans for not wearing masks in public and nobody fought back.
      They told Americans they couldn’t visit with their family members and nobody fought back.
      They closed all public spaces – national parks, beaches, skate parks, etc. and nobody fought back.
      They banned fishing, alone in your boat, and nobody fought back.
      They released convicted sex offenders from prisons and into our communities and nobody fought back.
      They trampled the entire Bill of Rights, and nobody fought back.
      They did all of this without a single vote by a legislative body, just a swipe of an executive’s pen, and nobody fought back.

      When they decide to ban and confiscate our rifles, who is going to fight back? Not these people.

        2. avatar Lance Manion says:

          No shooting. Just vote them out, resist/ignore their emergency orders that trample our freedoms and destroy our finances, sue them relentlessly, protest for real – millions of protesters, not thousands or more commonly – dozens. The protests so far have been anything but massive. My point is that if all the pain so far won’t motivate people to rise up, they won’t do it for rifles.

In this latest tragedy it seems the killer took weapons from the dead police and used them. Maybe Canada should follow England and ban the use and carrying of weapons by its police departments and RCMP. Just thinking.

    The AR15 (and clones) were registered so there is no way to “not comply”.

    Expect compliance rate to be similar or less than the NZ model.
    When they’re not registered, they don’t know where they are!

      Once it exists, most likely you are never rid of it. Check for yourself; is it a punishable crime to be caught with a copy of that registry? Can you go to prison for making a new entry? Didn’t think so. It is still there, and will be used against you.

      1. avatar Geoff "Guns. LOTS of guns..." PR says:

        I hope some brave Canadians will push the issue.

        If it is true, as Mark N. noted, that they were ordered to destroy that data, and they did not, then any arrest made using that data should be thrown out of court.

        If, as I suspect, they uphold the conviction, then Canada will have outed themselves as nation not of laws, and that is the definition of tyranny.

        The citizens of Canada will have the right, and the duty, to restore Canada to a nation of laws, by citizen revolt, if necessary…

      Good chance Cuomo could carry NY. Unfortunately for him, that’s not enough. Maybe he could get Newsome as VP, or Coonman. Still not enough. But he could whine and demand votes from Trump, spew rambling nonsense/bullshit for hours at a time while Trump runs the country, nah, I don’t think I’m worried about that twerp.

    2. avatar HP says:

      Cuomo wouldn’t be governor of NY if he didn’t have NYC to secure his position. His disastrous “leadership” and history of hateful, divisive quotes would be on display and all but ensure that he’d receive even less Democrat support than Biden. He has refused to participate in televised debates with the last two Republicans that ran against him in NY, because he knows he’s a complete disaster and can’t control his temper. Imagine him in a debate against Trump – he’d be reduced to red-faced lectern pounding in under 5 minutes.

          My point is, he can’t avoid that on a national stage, he can’t run from his record, and he can’t run from his speech. Basically, he’d carry about 4 or 5 states and be utterly smashed everywhere else.

    9 people died from fire. The murderer had 4 guns with him, only one came back to Canada, probably the officer’s gun. The other guns came from the U.S.. It sounds like the semi auto rifles and pistol were possibly 80%. The murderer has family that worked as cops. He had police uniforms and cars. I heard he also acquired body armor.

    This man was able to do whatever he wanted because he was willing and able. The law did not matter to him because he was not afraid to die. After the government shut down both his businesses and he had a domestic with his partner, he put on his Punisher uniform and tried to wipe out the town in time for Hitler’s birthday.

    Those poor victims had no chance. They can’t use guns for self defense in Canada. They couldn’t out run a bullet. They couldn’t escape their homes because he was waiting outside with a semi auto rifle. He shot those that answered the door, he shot those that pulled over. The people that refused to open up were burnt alive. Only 2 people escaped because they pretended not to be home. He even slept inside the home of two people he murdered until the next day.

    When one male officer was shot by the gunman he ran away to help himself. The result was a female officer having to take on the gunman by herself, she died trying to stop the gunman, she was executed. Other officers shot up the fire station where old people were hiding from the gunman, those cops left without checking on them and pretended like they never mag dumped on the building.

    Because people can make their own guns and citizens don’t have their right to self preservation, the government has to confiscate all guns from non government workers. For public safety of course, especially for the children.

    Don’t you love Western governments? They always like to talk about how they respect human rights while they remove human rights from their own people.

I simply do not understand how Canadians just sitting back accepting such “do something” which does nothing. It is exceptionally notable that Trudeau did NOT say in his comments that this ban would have prevented such a tragedy. The weapons used were obtained illegally. Guess the criminals haven’t read the gun safety laws to comply properly. I mean, at least here in the states, the anti-gun folks lie and manipulate information under the guise of safety, but really because they hate guns. We can do battle against mis-information. There’s no battle when you have a dictator who can enact a law at will. King George would be proud.

      Yes, I think banning certain guns that have not been shown as part of this maniac’s actions would have prevented all of it. [/sarc]

      And just where did this alleged “poll” come from that claims 80% of Canadians want “military assault weapons” banned effective immediately? Which polling group conducted the exercise, and where are the questions for us to review for public scrutiny?

    In Canada, tobacco causes about ,37,000 deaths each year and is the leading cause of preventable death. Tobacco kills more people in Canada than all deaths caused by traffic accidents, suicides, murders, and drug abuse combined.

      1. avatar MLee says:

        The estimates vary as to the preventable medical mistakes in the USA. The reality is it’s probably vastly under-reported which would mean those deaths are attributed to other causes. However the death toll has been reported to be almost as high as tobacco deaths in the US which is around 400,000 a year. Gun deaths being 30K or so of which 2/3 are suicide.
        I can’t begin to wrap my brain around that. It blows my mind that the gun grabbers harp about guns with statistics like that. Nobody dares argue gun control with me, I tell you that. I’m the proverbial brick wall you run into when someone starts in on me which unfortunately isn’t very often. The last time was when some never-Trumper was blowing wind at me about the Mueller report and how evil Trump was and we didn’t need assault rifles blah blah blah.

    Regarding the weapons used in the shooting that has Canada’s Prime Minister justifiably upset, my understanding is that they were a shotgun and a handgun, neither of which could reasonably be characterized as “assault weapons”. Otherwise, respecting the PM’s declaration, EXACTLY what are these “assault weapons”, the ones he would ban, and order the surrender of, and by the way, would Canadians who complied be compensated for the value of personal property they had LEGALLY ACQUIRED?

    The PM is doing this with the equivalent of an executive order as he doesnt have a majority government making legislation like this an issue (a number of Canadians oppose gun control based on the billions wasted trying to push a long gun registry).

    Let’s see if it happens, people are already questioning his leadership during the Covid situation and minority governments typically stay in power about 2 years (long enough to fundraise for the next election).

    Canada has long taken the approach of ammo control vs gun control. To purchase ammo you must have a valid firearms license (not a trival thing to get, highlights are you must disclose anyone your intimate with, and they will call or visit people who live near you to ask questions), and at every store I have been to let them record your information (name, dob, what you purchased).

    This has done nothing to deter gun violence, most crimes are commited with hand guns which are practically illegal in Canada (have minimum barrel length, and than are a restricted firearm, essentially must be kept at a gun club). There have been a few horrible shootings in rural parts of Canada (the Nova Scotia shooting, some police ambushed in northern areas), but that’s a mental health issue. In 2018 someone with a rented van killed 10 people and injuried 16, hasn’t been spoken of since and see vans parking and driving down the curbs on a daily basis…..

      Long guns you have (had) alot more freedom of ownership, as they are non-restricted unless named as restricted (what happened last week to the AR, mini-14, etc). I dont see these guns often due to the 5 round round magazine size limit (some exceptions made for 10 but is a grey area) on semi autos where lever, pump and bolt action rifles have no limits.
