The ban is part of a new gun control bill

The federal government has announced plans for a freeze on handgun sales as part of a new package of gun control measures.

Although gun owners can keep existing handguns, there will be a ban on buying, selling, or importing new handguns.

Do you think this will reduce gun crime or shootings in Canada? Or do the handgun problems here have other causes?
