Crime isn’t committed with legally purchased hand guns stored and handled under existing laws. Taking away hand guns from persons following the law doesn’t help illegal guns it only punishes law abiding citizens. Mandatory jail for criminal use, sale and possession period Utterly disgusting Govt of Canada 🇨🇦 taking Law abiding citizens rights one by one no matter what they do people who have urge to commit a violent crime they will find a way while Justin and his anti men govt going after law abiding non criminal citizens shame on you Trudeau.

New law for law abiding citizens. Criminals carry on. Nice to see he's taking a break from spreading lies and misinformation about the Truckers Protests to get back to 'real' work. Reduced sentences for criminals using firearms and then go after the lawful gun owners. Illegal guns seem to be ok with criminals by the liberals in power as all they talk about is against lawful gun owners. As lawful gun owners checked online daily by police more than criminals

It isn’t about public safety, it’s about government safety Why? Why? The more you restrict the worse it gets but hey don’t let me tell you that Ex🇬🇧 moved to Canada hated all gun ownership 2015 soon changed my mind soon after taking this photo ✌️❤️🇨🇦 hate = harmful communities take guns away British use kitchen knives to kill 👻

Just Canada virtue signalling again - this is embarrassing

Any action that helps eliminate even 1 such incident must be taken. UvaldeschoolMassacre serves a reminder that children are not safe in schools in US or elsewhere and it should be reviewed and acted upon to protect children in schools. Prayers for the angels of Robb elementary Trudeau using opportunity to make gains against gun lobby after. School house shooting!Canada already has the best gun laws in free world! Politicians fear might be target of far right and backlash from its own citizens and how sad!

More uselessness! Just enforce what is there! Will only serve to divide Canadians more as a good portion was ok with the way it was.Most Canadians don’t even know the regulations. Guns do not kill a human being does ! Ban baseball bats, knives , cars and everything else ,they are alll weapons if used to kill

Typical Liberals, reacting to things in other countries but ignore the reality of this one. Is there anyone in the Liberal Parliament that is actually even slightly knowledgeable about the Ministry position they hold. Stringent gun legislation is like motherhood, who can be against it. But the SpinMaster in Chief, PMJT, is at it again with the politics of diversion. The reality is, horrific crimes with firearms are being committed by imported illegal guns. Stop the import of illegal guns 😡👺

A bigger deterrent for criminals would work,they will always have access to weapons Wake up ,your punishing the wrong people period! Why? Hahaha

Toronto Public Health investigating two new suspected monkeypox cases, one probable caseToronto Public Health says all three men are doing well as it investigates two new suspected cases of monkeypox in the city, as well as one probable case TPH should start implementing evasive measures now. We cannot afford another shutdown. How about we track these disparent cases all over the world and see where they originate from.... seems we can track everything else but not this?. Who cares.

Great and we have no means to oppose it with the back room deal done. Pushing through all the crap while they have have an “agreement” in place. We already have severe regulations in place compared to the US. This is not going to change the illegal guns coming across the border. Another virtue signaling bill that wont change shit.

Bc so many Canadians are shooting people The idea is to eventually disarm the population. It has nothing to do with public safety. We all long to live in a world where everything is either mandated or banned. Except for the bad guys of course. So more restrictions that criminals will continue to ignore. Got it.

👍👍 Why don't they just make judges sentence firearm offenders to real jail time? Ohhhh yeah because they are bleeding heart lefties.. The only way a new bill is necessary right now is if it’s to increase the borders ability to stop (or at least begin to limit) the amount of illegal guns entering the country

Le crime organisé a très peur de ce nouveau bill car cela va empêche qu’ils se tirent en plein rue. C’est comme faire du bouche à bouche à un poisson hors de l’eau,inutile mais du sensationnalisme d’essayer de sauver le poisson devant les médias

Toronto Public Health investigating two new suspected monkeypox cases and one probable caseA spokesperson told the Star that all three individuals are “doing well.”

Liberals: Let’s lighten sentences for gun offenders (gangbangers) and let’s create more red tape for citizens who have passed criminal background checks and call it public safety. And of course this new firearm bill is not for any compassionate reason but for reasons of authoritarian control Such BS, liberals have caused this. Get the young hooked on drugs. Inflation causing prices to skyrocket. Destroy hope for a better life. And then pretend a gun makes you commit a crime. Nothing in this will address drugs or illegal guns. Just more government control.

Criminals still exempt though, right? Good move, but I also agree with fordnation that criminals don’t have legal firearms. Somehow we have to in force with non bailable imprisonment to control ill legal arms with strong criminal laws. CBCNews CP24 globeandmail TorontoStar OMNIpunjabi ymediagroup

About time 😼 Why? Can’t let a tragedy go to waste

New Glasgow, N.S., to receive 36 new affordable housing units by July - Halifax | Globalnews.caThe Nova Scotia and federal governments are providing $5 million for a housing project in New Glasgow, N.S., that converted a motel into 36 affordable housing units.

People have been stacking up illegal guns now for over a year! preparing for this announcement! The horses left the barn, why shut the gates now? Fucking disgusting. Is there a gun problem in Canada? So is the military having too follow the new gun laws, or is Ottawa just passing laws they don't follow themselves

Our government is so pro active. I am sure it was coming without the US incident. See a pattern here This gov't is a joke. Dan put it up your ass for it will be no good Im glad that this government is actually doing something good for once. People with guns can find another hobby. Should ban’s as soon as possible for all kinds of guns knives and anything dangerous for humans life’s

Downtown Saskatoon parking could be tight with potential of new arena; public transit could be utilized - Saskatoon | Globalnews.caDowntown has over 8,000 public parking spaces which are expected to be utilized with the possible development of an arena, but the spaces are efficient for downtown until then.

Well Canada has one of the strictest gun laws already. Question: is this new bill coming about base on what going on in the US? If Canada could and I believe it coming later that all guns must be turn in. Just can’t wait for the punishment of the innocent instead of the criminals. Something else will be hidden in the text of the bill, and the NDP will bend over and help pass it. What a lamentable time we are living in Canada.

Laws upon laws upon laws… novel idea, how about you just enforce the ones we have. JustinTrudeau is a snake 🐍 forked tongue and all liberal_party I am hoping that the liberals will finely get tougher on gun crimes and gun smuggling. But don't expect it. Far safer to go after legal gun owners. They reduced the time gun crimes have to spend in jail. They reduced the time gun smuggling spend in jail.

Will they target illegal guns at all? Why? Shooting happens in the U.S. New firearms bill by Canadian government. Doesn’t seem to be a problem here. Ah yes snap reactions to US incidents. WEF have their own police force with the BEST of weaponry. The elites body guards have the BEST of weaponry. BUT they don’t want you to have ways of protection leaving you vulnerable…think about it. 🤔🤫

B.C. court hears new appeal in fentanyl trafficking caseAfter a woman’s shorter sentence was applauded as a shift in attitudes on substance use, the case was reopened by the Public Prosecution

Nice mask fool Problem, action, solution. These sick puppies never let a crisis go to waste. why does canada need a new firearms bill because of something that happened in the US , we already have strict gun laws and existing laws on the books Everyone should have the right to bear arms to protect their family and stand up to tyrannical government, when you remove the firearms it allows the government to infringe peoples rights

Conservatives will be claiming their second amendment right like they were claiming first amendment right in court Wonder when the federal government is going to do anything about the increase of stabbings. When are we going to prohibit assault style knives?

This means that the bill could be tabled shortly after MPs return to the Commons on Monday, kicking off their last four week stretch of sitting before adjourning for the summer. Earlier this week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signalled that the federal government would be moving ahead on new gun-control measures "in the coming weeks. The minister noted that the development of programs for Youth Outreach will be left up to the John Howard Society." After the last election, Medicino was tasked with moving , though it remains to be seen what specifically will be included in this new bill. The agency says one of the three men had traveled to Montreal and was a contact of the first suspected case Toronto Public Health said it was investigating in the city over the weekend. The coming legislation does have the same title as a previously which died on the order paper after Trudeau called the 2021 election.S. Among the outstanding Liberal gun-control promises that could be included in the new bill: Following through on requiring owners of banned firearms sell them back to the government to be destroyed or "rendered inoperable"; Moving to ban the sale or transfer of high-capacity magazines that can hold more than the legal number of bullets; Requiring long-gun magazines be permanently altered "so that they can never hold more than five rounds”; Providing funding to provinces and territories who move ahead with banning handguns in their municipalities; Increasing the maximum penalties for firearm trafficking and smuggling; and Tabling "red flag laws" that would allow firearms to be immediately removed if the owner is deemed a threat to themselves or others. The suspected case of monkeypox that was announced on May 21, is now categorized as a probable case under new guidance from the Ministry of Health , the spokesperson added.

Speaking about the May 24 mass shooting at an elementary school in Texas, the public safety minister said it is a reminder that "we still have a lot of work to do" in Canada. I mean, these are not just problems we read about south of the border, we’re not immune from gun violence. More to come. "It's not just about writing responsible and common-sense laws. It's not just about investing more in law enforcement… It's about stopping crime from occurring in the first place, isn't it?" Mendicino said on May 25.
