安大略省多伦多 – 再次当选的自由党政府将会取缔突击步枪,并加强在加拿大的枪支管控。 发生在加拿大的枪支暴力案件正在上升。在2017年,枪支暴力案件的受害者比2013年多出了 2500人,而其中许多枪支案件涉及人们深爱的伴侣。目前,加拿大没有针对突击步枪的明确分类 ,这使得人们可以合法购买数类军用武器。 加拿大自由党领袖,贾斯廷-特鲁多表示:“有太多人在枪支暴力中失去了他们挚爱的人们。这些暴 力案件的“罪魁祸首”往往是为大规模杀伤人群而设计的军用武器这些枪支极度危险,而他们不应该在 加拿大出现。” “对逝者的悼念与祈祷不能解决这些问题。自由党政府将会在加拿大范围内取缔突击步枪。” 再次当选的自由党政府将会在此前通过的C-71法案的基础上,继续通过重要的政策,并持续针对 打击枪支犯罪做出严肃、并且符合常识的行动。 ● 我们会取缔包括AR-15在内的,所有军用突击步枪; ● 我们将会与省与地区政府协作,给予各个城市能够进一步限制,或者取缔手枪的权限;同 时 ● 我们将会保护遵守法律的猎户的权利,确保不会重启“长枪注册”政策。猎户们并不使用、 也不会需要突击步枪。 我们将会采取切实行动,与我们的执法机构合作,加强枪支管控。 ● 我们将会阻止可能对自己或者他人——包括他们的伴侣与孩子——构成威胁的人士持有或 获得新的枪支; ● 我们将会要求每一名进口子弹的人士必须出示有效的枪支证件;同时 ● 通过加强安全储藏法规,我们将会确保合法武器更难落入犯罪分子的手中。 在过去的四年内,我们的政府针对减少枪支暴力采取了强有力的行动: ● 我们废除了史蒂芬-哈珀时期出台的枪支政策,那些法规让购买与转售枪支更加简单; ● 我们开始要求枪支零售商进行更加彻底的背景调查;同时 ● 向我们全面的国家级打击枪支与帮派暴力战略投资近3.3亿加元,我们给予省与地区政府更 多的资源,打击枪支与帮派暴力。 “安德鲁-谢尔的枪支政策是由枪支说客撰写的。他的政策将会让犯罪分子更加容易获得突击步 枪。”特鲁多先生表示:“这样的行为十分可耻,现在是时候消除在加拿大的枪支暴力。” Backgrounder: Liberals move forward to ban assault rifles, strengthen gun control 背景资料:自由党自由党继续向前,在加拿大取缔突击步枪

Toronto (ON) — A re-elected Liberal government will ban assault weapons and strengthen gun control in Canada. Gun crime in Canada is on the rise. In 2017, there were 2,500 more victims of gun violence than in 2013, and many of these incidents involved intimate partners. Today, Canada has no clear classification for assault rifles — making it legal to buy several military-style weapons. “Too many people have lost loved ones to gun violence. And too often, the culprit is military-style weapons designed to inflict mass human casualties — guns so dangerous that they have no place in Canada,” said the Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau. “Thoughts and prayers aren’t going to cut it. A Liberal government will ban assault weapons in Canada.” A re-elected Liberal government will build on the important measures we passed in Bill C-71, and continue to take serious, common-sense action to crack down on gun crime: ● We will ban all military-style assault rifles, including the AR-15; ● We will work with the provinces and territories to give municipalities the ability to further restrict — or ban — handguns; and ● We will protect the rights of law-abiding hunters and pledge not to bring back the long-gun registry. Hunters do not use or need assault weapons. We will also take concrete steps — in partnership with our law enforcement agencies — to strengthen gun control. ● We will prevent people suspected of posing a danger to themselves or others — including their partners or kids — from possessing or acquiring new firearms; ● We will require that everyone importing ammunition must show proof of a valid firearms license; and ● We will make it harder for legal weapons to fall into the hands of criminals, by further strengthening safe-storage laws. Over the last four years, our government took strong action to reduce gun violence: ● We reversed the gun laws introduced by Stephen Harper that made it easier to purchase and transfer a weapon; ● We started requiring firearm retailers to conduct more extensive background checks; and ● We gave provinces and territories more resources to combat gun and gang violence, by investing nearly $330 million through our comprehensive, national Guns and Gangs Strategy. “Andrew Scheer’s policy on guns was written by the gun lobby. He has an agenda that will make it easier for criminals to get their hands on assault rifles,” said Mr. Trudeau. “It is shameful. It’s time to end gun violence in Canada.” Backgrounder: Liberals move forward to ban assault rifles, strengthen gun control
