There are non-stop gun ownership opinions as mass shootings have taken place. Is it the gun and easy access (in the U.S.)? Or is it the shooter who is to blame? Should it be more difficult to purchase a gun in the U.S. and should the gun registry be returned in Canada? We ask the gun owners.
Larry Pratt is the founder of Gun Owners of America. Tony Bernardo is the executive director of Canadian Shooting Sports Association and CILA (federal lobby group for Canadian gun owners). Bob Zimmer is the Conservative MP from B.C. who introduced the largest e-petition in Canadian history into parliament recently. The petition called for taking the AR-15 rifle off the restricted firearms list.
Must owning a firearm be more difficult in Canada and the U.S.?
