Guns in Canada History GUNS IN CANADA In my research project I go to be discussing the following subjects, the history of gun control in Canada, gun crimes in Canada with guns, ongoing debates on firearm use.

They will contend that criminal prefer victims or target who are not armed and that gun control regulations should be aimed towards criminals, not responsible, law abiding citizens.
