Premier Doug Ford yesterday took aim at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's newly announced ban on military-grade assault weapons during the province's daily pandemic media briefing.

The estimated $600-million cost of Ottawa's program would be better spent stopping smugglers at the border and cracking down on gun-wielding gangs that are "terrorizing innocent people," the premier said Saturday in response to a question from a reporter.

On Friday, the Trudeau government outlawed a wide range of assault-style rifles, saying the guns were designed for the battlefield, not for hunting or sport shooting.
