The Liberals are proposing to ban “assault weapons” like the AR-15, and give municipalities the right to implement local handgun bans. Both of these are in spite of a wealth of evidence suggesting lawfully owned and registered guns are not the sources of gun crime.

Also, the AR-15 is not an “assault rifle”, despite Justin Trudeau’s claims to the contrary. True North’s Andrew Lawton lays down the facts.
