Oh, Canada!

Our polite friends from the Great White North have had enough:

Trudeau announces ban on 1,500 types of ‘assault-style’ firearms — effective immediately

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today announced a ban on some 1,500 makes and models of military-grade and “assault-style” weapons in Canada, effective immediately.

Starting today, licensed gun owners will no longer be allowed to sell, transport, import or use these sorts of weapons in this country.

“As of today, the market for assault weapons in Canada is closed,” Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said. “Enough is enough. Banning these firearms will save Canadian lives.”

A buy-back program (smart move, Canada):

Trudeau said there will be a two-year amnesty period to allow people who already own these firearms to comply with the ban. Trudeau promised to pass legislation in the coming months to provide “fair compensation” to people who own these firearms.

Downside: You better believe that these weapons will make their way to the States during the next two years.

CORRECTION: This happened in 2020… so maybe we’re already flooded?

    2020 or not, assault rifles coming in from Canada would be like peeing in a swimming pool.
