When Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unilaterally banned dozens of models of so-called “assault weapons,” he claimed he was doing so in some kind of effort to prevent another massacre like what happened in Nova Scotia recently. It’s certainly understandable that an elected official would feel obligated to do something in the wake of such a horrible occurrence, but Trudeau’s reaction had nothing to do with preventing Nova Scotia from happening again.
No, it had everything to do with him wanting to ban a type of gun he didn’t think Canadians should have.
After all, the killer didn’t have his weapon legally. That much has been known for a little while now. You see, it seems the weapon was smuggled into Canada from the United States.
