The Canadian government is preparing a new plan to control gun culture. The government is taking this step in view of the recent shooting incident in an American school.
Following the recent incidents of shootings at American schools, the Canadian government is preparing a new plan to control gun culture. The Canadian government has introduced a bill to ban the sale, purchase and import of handguns. Apart from this, ‘Military Style Assault Weapons’ will be buyback. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that we are limiting the number of handguns in the country. Under the new rule, along with limiting the capacity of magazines, toys that look like guns will also be banned. Canadian Defense Minister Marco Mendicino has said the buyback will begin by the end of the year.
PM said- steps will have to be taken in time
Trudeau says that as a government, as a society, it is our responsibility to work to prevent as many tragedies as possible. He also said that if we do not stop it in time, then the situation will get worse in the coming time.
Shooting took place in America
The buyback proposal comes at a time when a student gunned down 19 children and two teachers in a mass shooting in the US a few days ago. He used a military style rifle to carry out the incident. After this incident, a debate has erupted once again regarding gun culture.
It is noteworthy that in 2012, after the murder of 20 children and six people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., the debate over the control of Powerful Arms started. But many Republicans aligned with the gun lobby refused to vote on any proposed legislation. US lawmakers failed to restore a ban on military-style semi-automatic weapons that ended in 2004.
New Zealand also imposed restrictions
New Zealand also started a semi-automatic weapon ban and buyback program in the year 2019. In fact, a gunman attacked two mosques and killed 51 people, dozens of people were injured in that firing.
There was also firing in Australia
In 1996, a gunman killed 35 people in Port Arthur, Australia. The government there took back more than 650,000 semi-automatic rifles and many shotguns.
