Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, campaigning for re-election, vowed on Friday to ban assault rifles but fell short on handguns, saying only that he would help cities restrict pistols and revolvers in response to a spate of shootings. “You don´t need military-grade assault weapons, ones designed to kill the largest amount of people in the shortest amount of time, to take down a deer,” he told a news conference in Toronto. There have been 311 shootings in Canada´s largest city so far this year, with gun violence having increased incrementally each year to almost triple the rate in 2014.
