Scandal Plague Justin Trudeau: “Ban Assault Rifles in Canada”

Toronto, Canada — After three days bogged down in a “black face” scandal, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sought to change the subject by publicly calling for a so-called “assault weapons ban” throughout Canada.

Current Canadian law outlaws fully automatic firearms and limits magazine size to five rounds for modern sport rifles.

Trudeau took to Twitter for a series of announcements.

On September 20, he had this to say:

“We’re going to ban military-style assault rifles in Canada.”

Trudeau’s reason for attempting to change the subject is due to a combination of three photos and videos that have been released of Trudeau, all take within the last 25 years, having painted his face black on multiple occasions.

At least one such incident took place while he was a private school teacher in the early 2000s.
