In the wake of the recent school shooting in Texas, PM Justin Trudeau has promised to move forward with new gun control legislation in the coming weeks.

“My heart breaks for everyone affected by the horrific shooting in Texas today. I’m thinking of the parents, the families, the friends, the classmates, and the coworkers whose lives have been forever changed – Canadians are mourning with you, and are here for you,” wrote in a Tweet.

Similarly, Trudeau took advantage of the political opportunity that the atrocity in the US provided him while announcing a $32 million funding grant for long-term care homes in Saskatchewan during a Saskatoon visit where he was passionately protested.

“As a parent, I’m going to have to go home to my kids, including my eight-year-old, and talk to them, again, about the inexplicable school shooting that we saw in the United States,” Trudeau said.

So far, Trudeau and his justice minister have refused to confirm or deny if a “full handgun ban across the country is on the table, despite increasing pressure from some mayors and gun control advocates,” reports City News.

“We’ve been working with them and some of their concerns over the past while because we understand there is a range of opinions and views,” he said.

Trudeau also claimed that Canadians are unified in “wanting to see less gun violence.”

“That unity is what we’re going to move forward with as we take new steps in the coming weeks on gun control,” Trudeau stated.

Recently, Liberal Safety Minister Marco Mendicino introduced several new measures, including what appears to be a side-door gun-registry database. Effective May 18, police will now be able to access legal gun owners’ information without a warrant whenever police believe they have “reasonable grounds” to do so.

Yet, to justify this new measure, Mendicino claimed police relied on a similar database to catch Marc Lepine, the shooter in the 1989 École Polytechnique massacre who shot himself immediately following his atrocity.

“You keep referencing that he was apprehended by a gun registry, but he shot himself at the scene of Polytechnique there. Can you explain how a gun registry was assisting that?” asked a reporter.

After Mendicino offered up a word salad — one that didn’t remotely address the question — the reporter gave up.

Indeed, it appears there’s no low too low that Liberals won’t stoop to justify more gun restrictions and regulation.
