Trudeau: Government will limit access to certain weapons
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.
