Letter: Assault weapons are deadly and should be banned in Canada
Letter to the editor. File

This is a letter to Niagara Falls MP Tony Baldinelli. A copy was submitted to The Lake Report for publication.

Dear editor:

As a surgeon, I am well aware of the significant injury caused by gunshot wounds. Some people die.

This is a major public health issue in Canada.

Numerous studies have proven that lives can be saved when assault weapons are removed from society.

That is why I applaud the federal government’s recent amendments to the proposed gun control legislation (bill C-21) that will permanently ban assault weapons in Canada.

Guns capable of killing and injuring many people very quickly have no place in our community.

I urge Parliament to pass this bill.

Dr. Ted Rumble
