Trudeau: Gov­ern­ment will limit ac­cess to cer­tain weapons

The Western Star - - CANADA -

MON­TREAL — Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau says his gov­ern­ment plans to limit ac­cess to hand­guns and as­sault weapons to con­front gun vi­o­lence in the coun­try. Speak­ing to Mon­treal ra­dio sta­tion 98.5 FM on Thurs­day on the an­niver­sary of the 1989 Ecole Polytech­nique mas­sacre, Trudeau did not rule out a full ban when asked by the host.

“We are cur­rently re­flect­ing on how we are go­ing to do bet­ter to counter the vi­o­lence caused by hand­guns and as­sault weapons, yes,” Trudeau said. “What’s hap­pen­ing is un­ac­cept­able.”

The prime min­is­ter said the gov­ern­ment is look­ing at dif­fer­ent al­ter­na­tives to ad­dress the sit­u­a­tion.
