"These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time. There is no use and no place for such weapons in Canada," said Trudeau.
"Effective immediately, it is no longer permitted to buy, sell, transport, import or use military-grade assault weapons in this country."
The mass shooting in Nova Scotia last week has been deemed the worst shooting in the country's history and has given Trudeau the cover to "strengthen gun control." This was one of his major campaign promises, and he has seized the opportunity in a crisis.
