Canada to ban import of handguns pending total freeze

Canada is to ban imports of handguns - part of a move that could see a total freeze on their purchase and sale.

The measure, starting on 19 August, is designed to hold up until parliament passes strict new rules, including a permanent importation ban.

Handguns have "one purpose only and that is to kill people", Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said.

The government's proposed total ban, unveiled three months ago, follows outrage over several deadly shootings.

Manitoba Conservative MP Raquel Dancho condemned the move, saying it was "disrespecting an important part of Canada's cultural heritage", and "will do nothing to stop the flow of illegal handguns" from the US.

Bingo. Canada’s Einstein figured it out. People need lethal force to protect themselves.
Pretty sure the lethality if any gun is it’s point.
