The ban would include the sale, possession, transportation and storage of handguns, he said Tuesday.

“I’m sick of Doug Ford’s open-business gun policy.” said Del Duca. “The Ford Conservatives are putting the interests of the gun lobby ahead of the Ontario victims of gun crime they are sworn to protect. The result is that gun violence spirals out of control.

“The choice on handguns is clear: more handguns and gun crime under the Ford Conservatives or a ban on handguns under the Ontario Liberals.

The Liberals, if elected to govern on June 2, “would also accept the federal government’s offer to fund a buyback program, partner with the federal government to end the smuggling of firearms across the border between Ontario and the United States (and) would advocate extending the ban nationwide”. .”
