Important to note a municipal hand gun ban would have to be approved by individual provinces first. Doug Ford has said he is against them. When asked about this Trudeau says he wants to work with the provinces (the feds can force it if they want)

Why? Trudeau is asked. "it wasn't a good idea it was a terrible idea, it minimizes and takes advantage of a reality I have not had to live with."

No not at all. I’m simply saying a photo can be devastating. Trudeau’s photo is a million times worse than Stanfield’s with far greater implications bc it strikes at the heart of the image he has been trying to portray - not to mention the hurt it’s causing to many

Photos can have a massive impact during a campaign, I’m suddenly reminded of PC leader Robert Stanfield’s infamous football fumble taken by CP in 1974 that many say changed the election.
