The Moose Jaw Police Service is awaiting the decision from Parliament when it comes to new firearm regulations. 

On May 30, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced new gun control proposals that would include a freeze on hand gun sales. 

The proposed regulations would also stop anyone with a history of domestic violence or stalking offenses from obtaining or keeping a firearms license. 

Because the regulations are still before Parliament, police chief Rick Bourassa said it a bit of a waiting game to see how they will fit into the plan. 

“These are matters that are before Parliament right now, and we'll wait to see what the final outcome is on that and then we'll sort of where we fit into that and how we will be applied,” Bourassa said. 

He added that the changes could be more of a regulatory process, meaning it would not have a huge effect on their operations. 

“I don't anticipate any significant impacts on our resources, I understand perhaps on the border services folks and perhaps the firearms regulatory people, but we'll see where that goes,” Bourassa said.
