Justin Trudeau has been chipping away at Canadians’ firearms rights since he first took office.

Beyond the rhetoric about “taking guns off the streets” is a battle against Canadians who happen to be law-abiding gun owners. From competition shooters and families who own firearms businesses to Indigenous Canadians and folks in the country’s north and rural areas, ordinary people who have nothing to do with the gun crime are caught in the crosshairs of the Liberal government’s attack on guns.

For these people and businesses, it isn’t about shooting, but about living their lives.

In this True North documentary, Andrew Lawton travels the country talking to the real people Trudeau’s gun grab affects and targets.

Property seized, businesses jeopardized, law-abiding folks vilified, and facts ignored.

Assaulted: Justin Trudeau’s War on Gun Owners is a project unlike any other in Canada. Unlike mainstream media coverage by reporters who have never seen a gun in real life, Assaulted is produced and hosted by Andrew Lawton, a lawful gun owner himself.

The series will tell the stories of the untold victims of Justin Trudeau’s gun policies, and show the inconvenient facts challenging the Liberal firearms narrative.
