Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Justice.
Two new hyperdestructive handgun bullets were recently developed in the United States. One is designed to do maximum damage to human tissue while the second can penetrate body armour. This rhino ammunition is designed to break into thousands of razor-like fragments when it hits flesh and death is almost instantaneous.
I want to ask the minister whether the import and sale of these bullets will be prohibited in Canada and whether the sale of all ammunition will be subject to control under his new legislation to be tabled next week?
