Canada Gun Ban – level 1

07-05-2020 07:00

The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, bans military guns. The ban starts very quickly. People in Canada must not buy, sell, or use military guns. There are about 1,500 different types of these guns in Canada.

Trudeau is very strict. He says that these guns must not be in Canada. These guns can kill many people in a very short time. They can be dangerous. However, many people have these guns. People have time to make changes for the ban. They can bring the guns back to gun shops.

Two weeks ago, a man with a gun kills 22 people in Nova Scotia. It is the worst attack in Canadian history. The gun ban is because of this attack.

Difficult words: ban (to stop something officially), military (for soldiers), strict (very hard), ban (when something cannot happen).
