“You can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada,” Trudeau said.
“It’s not a right that you have.”

You can get a gun for hunting or sports shooting after going through rigorous background checks, according to Trudeau.
However, Trudeau asserts that law-abiding citizens cannot have a legally purchased gun for self-defense.
“One of the things that we’re seeing with the debate in the states [USA] is you get more and more of the American-style right-to-carry, self-defense arguments filtering up through the usual more right-wing communications channels,” Trudeau said.
Maybe it’s because more and more Canadians value the 2nd Amendment protections guaranteed for Americans in the U.S. Constitution, including from a tyrannical government.
So Canadians might want to make a list of all the things they no longer have rights to:
