Re. Handgun ban fast-tracked (Castanet, Aug. 5)
“Given that nearly all our handguns are imported, this means that we're bringing our national handgun freeze even sooner," (Public Safety Minister Marco) Mendicino said. "From that moment forward, the number of handguns in Canada will only go down.”
Does Mendicino actually think that banning legal handgun imports will miraculously stop illegal imports?
Just imagine the impact on crime the (government) could have had if it used the billions of taxpayers dollars spent punishing legal and responsible firearm owners and instead put it directly towards stopping the illegal firearms trade and gun crime.
