Canada's firearms buyback program taking shape as Feds ink deal | FULL

Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino announced on Wednesday that the federal government had signed a contract with the Canadian Sporting Arms and Ammunition Association (CSAAA) to help kickstart the planned buyback of banned firearms as it continues to rework some controversial gun control amendments.

Mendicino made the announcement Wednesday morning, in what Ottawa is touting as a "significant step" towards the launch of the Firearms Buyback Program. CSAAA, which represents the hunting and sport shooting industry in Canada will work in collaboration with Public Safety Canada and retailers.

The first phase of the program is set to begin later this year and will focus on businesses with banned firearms in their possession, according to the government.
