Trudeau Government Tightens Screws On Gun Ownership

In legislation introduced Tuesday, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale is mandating more extensive background checks that will attempt to discern any evidence of mental illness in a potential gun owner’s personal history. When asked what kinds of mental illness are associated with gun violence, Goodale explained that he would “have that conversation with a variety of groups and organizations.”

Wanting to own a firearm will be defined as mental illness.
