gun control

gun control


Gun control is the regulation and control of firearm purchase, ownership and use. Specifically control of what kinds of firearms should be allowed; how many can be owned; and where and when they can be used.

Currently in Canada, it is illegal to own automatic weapons and license is required to possess and acquire firearms. It is also mandatory to register one's firearms with the federal government's national gun registry.

Those convicted of crimes involving guns face harsher penalties than they would otherwise.
