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.

加拿大總理賈斯汀·特魯多(Justin Trudeau)宣布將禁止攻擊性武器,這是其對上周造成22人死亡的新斯科舍省暴力事件的回應。

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日那場令人恐慌的襲擊中,一名51歲的假牙技師進行了瘋狂的殺戮,他用兩支半自動步槍和手槍攻擊受害者,還焚燒了一些房屋,隨后在與警方的對峙中被擊斃。加拿大警方稱,目前還不清楚嫌疑人沃特曼(Gabriel Wortman)為何要實施長達13個小時的暴行,而有報道稱他的暴力行徑與財產糾紛以及疫情封鎖期間的酗酒有關。

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,沃特曼持有的槍支并非合法所得。但加強加拿大槍支管制的呼聲不斷高漲,并在特魯多周五的聲明中達到高潮。

"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."

“設計這些武器有且只有一個目的:在最短的時間內殺死最多的人,”特魯多總理說道。最后他總結道:“在加拿大沒有使用這些武器的必要,也沒有這些武器的容身之地?!?br />


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.

禁槍名單也遭到了一些人的譏諷,因為名單上有真正的軍事武器——地對空導彈發射器、火箭筒以及其他幾乎從未落入平民手中的重型武器。
