Gun Control | Cry from the heart of PolySeSouvist and Quebec Mosque

(OTTAWA) The debate over banning assault weapons has run sideways, according to spokeswoman for the Quebec Islamic Cultural Center Boufeldja Benabdallah.

“It has been more than three decades since victims of mass murder fought,” he argued in the parliamentary committee. I am ashamed that such a country has been fighting for 33 years and that we cannot come to an agreement. ยป

He recalled December’s memorial service for the 14 victims of the Polytechnique massacre and two weeks ago for the six victims of the Quebec Grand Mosque. He also referenced the Dawson College shooting.

“We have to come back to Parliament before you to ask you to ban these offensive weapons,” he lamented.

“We can no longer do this crossroads,” affirmed the spokeswoman for PolySeSouveint and survivor of this mass murder of women.

The group wants the government to introduce new assault weapon ban amendments that would include a definition and a list to prevent manufacturers from continuing to introduce new models.

The government earlier this month withdrew two controversial amendments to Bill C-2 to ban military-style assault weapons. They were submitted last fall after public consultations ended, sparking an outcry. The Minister of Public Safety, Marco Mendicino, does not rule out the submission of new applications.

Meanwhile, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security has decided to continue its work and hear witnesses on the ban on assault weapons.
