News in Review Guns: The Urban-Rural Divide

The increase in shootings in many Canadian cities has more and more people calling for a ban on handguns and tougher firearm restrictions. But for many rural Canadians, legal gun use is a part of daily life, far removed from city shootings that make the news. This has sparked a heated debate between rural and urban residents over how to treat guns in this country. This report from CBC's Terence McKenna presents multiple perspectives, including law-abiding gun owners, a Conservative politician speaking out on behalf of rural gun owners, and a trauma surgeon who is part of a coalition of doctors in favour of a handgun ban.
