Ottawa: Liberals’ gun-control legislation, which is also known as Bill C-21, passed the House of Commons on Thursday.
This bill is aimed at cementing restrictions on handguns, increasing penalties for firearm trafficking and trying to curb homemade ghost guns.
The legislation now heads to the Senate, almost a year after its introduction.
It includes a ban on assault-style firearms that would apply once the bill comes into force.
The Conservatives Party opposes the legislation and says it penalizes law-abiding firearm owners instead of targeting criminal gun violence. — Canadian Press
