Foreign News: Canada announces it will ban the import of handguns


2022-08-07: [Chinese Article Link]  According to Agence France Presse, on 5 August, Canada will ban the importation of pistols. It was reported that the Government of Canada announced a ban on the import of pistols on Friday, 19 August, as part of a broader Canadian freeze following the large-scale shootings in its neighbouring countries. “I am pleased to announce that my Government has decided to ban the import of pistols.” A communiqué states that it is an “interim ban” that will apply to individuals and businesses from 19 August and will continue until “a nationwide pistol freeze is in force”. Mendicino, on his way to Etobicoc, a suburb of Toronto, stressed that these weapons “have only one purpose: to kill”. The Firearms Control Advocate, representing families and survivors of victims of firearms violence, described it as “an important innovation that will slow the growth of the Canadian firearms market until the bill is passed”. However, the Canadian Coalition for Firearms Rights describes this declaration as “further misuse of procedures for political purposes.” Rod Giltaka, the head of the Coalition, told Agence France Presse journalists that the way to ensure public safety should be to prohibit the importation of illegal rather than legal pistols. He adds that, on the contrary, members of the Liberal Party “prohibit the legal possession of pistols by licensed and certified Canadians, which they have done in Canada for more than 100 years”.
