Discussion Topic: Canadian Group Aims to Slash Outdoor Knives

From Montreal's The Gazette:

Bill 9, christened Anastasia's Law, would ban firearms from schools and daycare centres - except for such authorized personnel as police - and prevent anyone from carrying a firearm on public transit, including school buses. . . .

"I can't believe that people can buy that here . . . ."_
