Canada Gun Ban – level 2

07-05-2020 07:00

The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced a ban on military guns. The ban starts immediately, and people in Canada must not buy, sell, and use military-grade guns.

Trudeau said that these guns have only one purpose and that is to kill as many people as possible in a short time.

However, there are many people who own these guns. Trudeau announced that there will be a two-year period that will give people enough time to adapt to the new rules. Gun owners can also return the guns to the gun shops where they bought them.

The ban comes two weeks after the worst shooting in Canadian history when a man with a gun killed 22 people in Nova Scotia.

Difficult words: ban (when something is not officially possible), military-grade (suitable for soldiers), purpose (why something exists or happens).
