(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday — America’s Memorial Day, no less — went into full authoritarian mode demanding legislation that would essentially criminalize an entire industry and abolish the country’s handgun manufacturers and marketers.
Trudeau’s far-leftist government wants a national freeze on importing, buying or selling handguns.
“We’re introducing legislation to implement a national freeze on handgun ownership,” Trudeau proclaimed.
“What this means is it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer, or import handguns anywhere in Canada.
“In other words, we’re capping the market for handguns,” Trudeau said.
The globalist’s edict comes fresh off Trudeau’s tyrannical spree of arresting, beating and confiscating the money of citizens who participated in or supported the Freedom Convoy protests against gross government overreach.
The Freedom Convoy almost overthrew him with no guns, so of course he wants to ban guns.

Trudeau’s legislation would also ban the sale and transfer of large-capacity magazines and require long-gun magazines to be permanently altered so they can never hold more than five rounds, according to the CBC, which noted that, “while the proposal falls short of a full ban on handguns,” it would produce essentially the same result.
“Canada continues its fall to totalitarianism,” tweeted Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, while freedom activist podcaster Tim Pool offered that, “This is what evil looks like,” referring to the dictatorship to the north.
Additionally, Trudeau wants to implement a new “red flag” law that would let government judicial agents to require that people considered a danger to themselves or others surrender their firearms to police.
Canadian Conservative House leader, John Brassard, ripped Trudeau’s radical legislation that “unfairly targets legal gun owners.”
“The real problem in this country is not the law-abiding firearms owners, who are heavily regulated, heavily-licensed,” Brassard told the CBC.
“The real problem in this country has to do with gangs and criminals who are importing firearms, mostly from the United States, using illegal guns on our streets.”
