Canadian ban on importing handguns will kick in this month, says minister

Using regulations for the restriction will not require a vote in Parliament, which is currently on a summer break until the end of September.

The federal government plans to fast-track a ban on the import of handguns into the country without the approval of Parliament using a regulatory measure that comes into effect in two weeks, Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino announced Friday.The change will last until a permanent freeze is passed in Parliament and comes into force.The government tabled gun control legislation in May that includes a national freeze on the importation, purchase, sale and transfer of handguns in Canada.That law did not pass before Parliament took its summer break and is set to be debated again when MPs return to Ottawa in the fall. 5:16Canada’s ban on importing handguns will begin Aug. 19, says ministerCanada’s ban on importing handguns will begin Aug. 19, says ministerIn the meantime, Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly said she has the authority to ban any import or export permit in Canada.Story continues below advertisementUntil now, she said there was no import permit system required for owners and businesses to buy handguns elsewhere in the world and bring them to Canada.“Working with Marco, we came up with this idea of creating this new system of requiring permits,” Joly said. “But meanwhile, we will deny any permits.”When the prime minister first announced the proposed legislation in the spring, Canada saw an uptick in gun sales, Joly said, and this temporary ban will prevent stores from stocking up on guns while the bill makes its way through the House of Commons and the Senate.Trending StoriesThe dark side of winning the lottery: lucky ticket can cause new troubles, past winners sayEarth is spinning faster than normal, and we just had our shortest day in recent historyRead more: National handgun ‘freeze’ among new firearm regulations proposed by OttawaGovernment trade data shows Canada imported $26.4 million worth of pistols and revolvers between January and June _ a 52 per cent increase compared to the same period last year. 2:36Handgun sales on the rise following federal announcement, some stores selling out.Handgun sales on the rise following federal announcement, some stores selling out – Jun 8, 2022The temporary ban will prevent businesses from importing handguns into Canada, with a few exceptions that mirror those in the legislation tabled in May.Story continues below advertisement“Given that nearly all our handguns are imported, this means that we’re bringing our national handgun freeze even sooner,” Mendicino said. “From that moment forward, the number of handguns in Canada will only go down.”Mendicino and Joly announced the change outside of a Catholic elementary school in the Toronto suburb of Etobicoke, as children kicked soccer balls around in the field behind them.PolySeSouvient, a group that represents survivors and families of victims of gun violence, applauded the government’s approach to freezing imports in a statement released Friday.Read more: Handgun smuggling still a concern as Liberals move to freeze weapon“This is a significant and creative measure that will unquestionably slow the expansion of the Canadian handgun market until Bill C-21 is adopted, hopefully this fall,” said Nathalie Provost, a survivor of the Ecole Polytechnique shooting in Montreal in 1989.Conservative public safety critic Raquel Dancho said the move targets law-abiding citizens and businesses rather than illegal and smuggled guns.“Instead of addressing the true source of gun crime in Canada, the Liberal government is unilaterally banning imports without parliamentary input, impacting a multi-billion dollar industry and thousands of retailers and small businesses, with very little notice,” Dancho said in a statement after the announcement.Story continues below advertisementIn the announcement, Mendicino accused the Official Opposition of obstructing the passage of the bill and other gun control measures. Dancho, meanwhile, said the Conservatives support addressing illegal gun smuggling and accused the Liberals of creating a wedge issue out of gun control while making communities less safe.Mendicino said he’s been visiting land borders over the summer to make sure the government has the staff and technology in place to address illegally smuggled weapons as well.© 2022 The Canadian Press
