Gun Control and Bill C-21
Published on April 06, 2021
Since the mid-1990's the National Council of Women has advocated for an end to gun violence in Canada. Much has been done in the past two decades, however gun violence remains a serious concern to the victims of violence. We now have another opportunity with Bill C-21 to address gun control in Canada. The recent government Bill C-21 bans military assault weapons and provides municipalities with the right to control hand-guns. Bill C-21 is not perfect, and challenges remain. Much more needs to be done.
