2010 video surfaces of Justin Trudeau saying he wouldn’t ban guns

‘Never going to happen’ says Trudeau a decade ago about gun ban

Starting this past Friday, licensed gun owners will no longer be allowed to sell, transport, import or use these weapons. This targets law-abiding citizens who legally own rifles and not criminals.

But in 2010 Trudeau had a different opinion, as seen in this video posted by Aaron Gunn.

Trudeau is also being accused of politicizing the Nova Scotia massacre, using it as an excuse to ban about 1,500 makes and models of semi-automatic weapons in Canada, effective immediately.

The ban is controversial and a petition against the ban started by Alberta Conservative MP Glen Motz in December has more than 175,000 e-signatures.

Many weapons used in violent crime in Canada weren’t obtained legally, and Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said Trudeau would do better to focus on stopping guns from coming across the border instead of targeting law-abiding gun owners.
