Finally, someone in North America took a stand against the use of assault weapons. It was Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who announced an immediate ban on assault-style weapons like the AR-15 and variants. Trudeau was motivated by 22 Nova Scotians killed in cold blood two weeks ago by a gunman.

Eight years ago, a young man used automatic weapons to slaughter 26 people in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut - 20 of them children between the ages of 6-7 years old! To this day, no real meaningful legislation has come forth from Washington, D.C.

As the bumper sticker says, “Change Gun Laws or Change Congress.” Is anyone listening?
