Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has announced that his government will be banning assault-style weapons, in response to last week''s Nova Scotia rampage that saw 22 killed.

加拿大总理贾斯汀·特鲁多(Justin Trudeau)宣布将禁止攻击性武器,这是其对上周造成22人死亡的新斯科舍省暴力事件的回应。

The disturbing April 18-19 attack saw a 51-year-old denturist go on a wild killing spree, in which he shot his victims with two semi-automatic rifles and pistols, and also torched homes – to be later killed in a confrontation with police. Canadian police said it wasn''t immediately clear why the suspect, identified as Gabriel Wortman, went on his 13-hour rampage, while reports have tied his violent breakdown to a property dispute and to alcohol abuse during the lockdown.

在4月18日至19日那场令人恐慌的袭击中,一名51岁的假牙技师进行了疯狂的杀戮,他用两支半自动步枪和手枪攻击受害者,还焚烧了一些房屋,随后在与警方的对峙中被击毙。加拿大警方称,目前还不清楚嫌疑人沃特曼(Gabriel Wortman)为何要实施长达13个小时的暴行,而有报道称他的暴力行径与财产纠纷以及疫情封锁期间的酗酒有关。

Notably, the guns found in Wortman''s possession were not obtained legally. This didn''t stop the influx of calls for tighter gun controls in Canada, culminating in Trudeau''s Friday announcement.

值得注意的是,沃特曼持有的枪支并非合法所得。但加强加拿大枪支管制的呼声不断高涨,并在特鲁多周五的声明中达到高潮。

"These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time," the prime minister said, concluding that "there is no use and no place for such weapons in Canada."

“设计这些武器有且只有一个目的:在最短的时间内杀死最多的人,”特鲁多总理说道。最后他总结道:“在加拿大没有使用这些武器的必要,也没有这些武器的容身之地。”



The list of banned guns also drew ridicule from some quarters, for the presence on it of actual military weapons – surface-to-air missile launchers, RPGs, and other heavy-duty arms that almost never end up in civilian hands.

禁枪名单也遭到了一些人的讥讽,因为名单上有真正的军事武器——地对空导弹发射器、火箭筒以及其他几乎从未落入平民手中的重型武器。
