“We will maintain the ban on assault weapons and we will develop a transparent process when it comes to training and licensing for guns, because we need to target street guns and smuggling. We’ve seen an increase in violent crimes because of that,” O’Toole told reporters at a campaign stop in Montreal.
“We’re going to go after the real risk here — criminal gangs and the illegal smuggling of firearms, something that’s gotten worse under Mr. Trudeau. I will focus resources on what keeps communities safe and stop this process of dividing Canadians,” O’Toole said.
