Canada bans assault-style firearms

The Prime Minister of Canada has announced the ban of over 1,500 models and variants of assault-style firearms. Some of their components are also prohibited.

The newly prohibited firearms and components cannot be legally used, sold, or imported. Owners must also continue to safely store them, and may only transfer and transport them under limited circumstances. These measures will remove dangerous firearms designed for military use from communities.

A National Firearms Agreement was legislated in Australia in 1996 which placed tight control on semi-automatic and fully automatic weapons. 

The Australian Act included a gun buy-back provision.
