Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Canada introduces new gun control measures

Students are marching and silencing to stop gun violence. Lawmakers are arguing to control firearm sales and ownership, such as background checks and the minimum age to purchase guns.

Canada is the second-largest country by total area. The population is just over 36 million, which makes it one of the least densely populated countries in the world. You can imagine that the people who live in remote areas want to have some sort of firearms to protect them from people and animals. 

Though it’s not as high as the one in the US, the number of gun-related has been on the rise in Canada. And the lawmakers there are trying to curb the increase by making it more difficult to purchase guns by introducing stricter background checks.

Does it sound like an effective solution? Are those gun-related crimes and incidents committed by individuals who have easily-traceable records? Could it have prevented the recent gun massacres in Florida and Las Vegas?

Enjoy reading the article and think what makes lawmakers hesitate to act more decisively.
