Trudeau says “violence” has been “caused” by guns, rather than pointing out that it’s actually the actions of criminals that cause the violence.
Justin Trudeau and the Liberals continue to move further towards taking more rights away from law-abiding Canadian gun owners.
During an interview with 98.5 FM in Montreal, Trudeau was asked if we would rule out a full ban on handguns and ‘assault weapons.’
He refused to do so.
Instead, Trudeau said “We are currently reflecting on how we are going to do better to counter the violence caused by handguns and assault weapons, yes. What’s happening is unacceptable.”
First of all, the guns are not causing the violence. Guns are being used to commit violence, but the violence is being caused by the actions of criminals – who, as we all know – don’t follow the gun laws.
Secondly, the Liberals seem to be leaving the vaguely-worded ‘assault weapons’ category purposely undefined, potentially leaving the door open for a big increase in restrictions – even though there are already substantial restrictions in firearms already in this country.
Unfortunately, the Trudeau Liberals would much rather try and score some political points and go after law-abiding Canadian gun owners, instead of actually dealing with crime.
By contrast, the Conservatives have announced measures to increase resources for the police, which is a more realistic and practical approach.
It sets up a clear contrast on the issue of crime and firearms in the upcoming election, with the Liberals pushing virtue-signalling and taking rights away from Canadians, while the Conservatives give law-enforcement more tools to do their jobs.
