Minister Bill Blair seeking views on reducing violent crime

On October 11, 2018 the Honourable Bill Blair, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction, issued the following statement:

“Keeping communities safe and reducing violent crime is a priority for the Government of Canada. This is why, in my Mandate letter, the Prime Minister has asked me to lead an examination of a ban on handguns and assault weapons in Canada, while not impeding the lawful use of firearms by Canadians. I am committed to examining all options and hearing all perspectives on this issue. ”
