Minister Bill Blair is considering changing the rules so that law-abiding gun owners must store their guns in a centralized, government-approved facility rather than at home.

He’s not committing to the policy, but says it’s an option as he reviews ways to overhaul Canada’s firearms laws, including possibly banning handguns and “assault rifles.”

True North’s Andrew Lawton, a licensed gun owner himself, weighs in.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
