When Justin Trudeau banned 1,500 types of firearms and continued to restrict legal gun ownership, he and his government insisted rural Canadians and those for whom firearms are a way of life would not be targeted. Just like with sport shooters and business owners, this is far from the case.

The rural-urban divide in Canada is significant, especially when it comes to firearms laws and regulations, which are written by city-dwelling politicians and bureaucrats who are disconnected from the realities of life elsewhere in the country, where police are hours, not minutes, away.

In this final episode of Assaulted, Andrew talks to Alberta rancher Eddie Maurice, wilderness videographer John Banovich, Canadian Armed Forces veteran Ryan Steacy, and Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights CEO Rod Giltaca.

In Assaulted: Justin Trudeau’s War on Gun Owners, True North’s Andrew Lawton travels the country talking to real gun owners whose stories are being ignored by the mainstream media and who are being vilified by the Trudeau government.
