Summit.news reports: A little over a month ago, following the school shooting in Texas, Trudeau proposed freezing pistol sales in Canada as part of new gun control legislation.

“The day this legislation goes into effect it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns in Canada,” Trudeau told reporters.
