Canadian women support gun control

59% of Canadians believe that the registration of rifles and shotguns is useful and should be maintained, according to a nationwide opinion survey. The survey also shows that two-thirds of women and half of people living with gun owners also support the gun registry. Recently, new legislation has been proposed to eliminate the need to register rifles and shotguns. Wendy Cukier from the Canadian Coalition for Gun Control said: “We hear repeatedly that gun control is an issue that ‘punishes’ gun owners. The irony is that where there are more guns, there are also higher rates of gun death and injury.” More.
