The federal government has announced it is going to study a ban on all handguns and assault weapons.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent the minister of border security and organized crime reduction a mandate letter, dated Aug. 28, in which he tells Bill Blair: “You should lead an examination of a full ban on handguns and assault weapons in Canada, while not impeding the lawful use of firearms by Canadians.”
