The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police is refusing to back a handgun ban, calling the proposal “naïve” and saying it won’t address the root causes of gun crime.

Yet still, left-wing politicians like John Tory and Bill Blair talk about gun bans as though they will make an impact on gun crime. They’re wrong. True North’s Andrew Lawton, a gun owner, weighs in.

True North is standing up for gun owners even if the government isn’t. Support our voice this election by donating to our election coverage fund:

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.
