. New legislation promises to let cities ban handguns, yet it remains unclear if it will work « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CBC News – While proposed gun control legislation put forward by the Liberal government on Tuesday would permit cities to ban handguns — with bylaws that restrict their possession, storage and transportation — it remains unclear whether the new measures would succeed in reducing gun crime.

Under the proposed legislation, cities would have a range of options.

Some include an outright ban on having a handgun anywhere within a city’s limits. Or a city could ban the storage of handguns in a house, requiring owners to pay for storage at a gun club or other facility.
