Liberals to look at ‘full ban’ on handguns, assault weapons

The federal government plans to study a full ban on handguns and assault weapons in Canada.

A mandate letter to Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Minister Bill Blair from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sets the minister to the task of working with Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale on policy, regulations or legislation on gun control.

“You should lead an examination of a full ban on handguns and assault weapons in Canada, while not impeding the lawful use of firearms by Canadians,” the mandate letter reads.

It also outlines other jobs for the new portfolio, including leading the government’s plan to deal with asylum seekers entering Canada outside official border points (which the letter refers to as “irregular migration”), overseeing the legalization of marijuana and cracking down on opioids.

The issue of gun control arose after the July 22 mass shooting in Toronto’s Greektown.

Trudeau promised at the time that the government would take stepsto ensure Canadians are safe, but did not say if the government was considering a handgun ban.
