Canadian Gun Law Changes

Garand, I see new gun law's being enacted this Spring in Canada. Namely, handgun's, and of course, assault rifles. Will this affect you? I still take a M-1 Garand and pump shotgun with me on our Spring fishing trip to Ontario. I'll have to check with the power's to be to make sure my Garand has not turned into an assault rifle.

They turned CZ 858's and variants and Swiss Arms Rifles & variants from restricted to prohibited (grandfathered). Which means if you own it on June 30, 2018, you can keep it until the day you die or you can sell it to only someone else who already owns one. This probably affects less than 20,000 gun owners in Canada. Given that their is a federal election next year they chose not to piss off the 52,000+ registered AR-15 owners. That would be too many lost votes.

The worst part of the legislation is that they gave the RCMP carte blanche to write new gun laws with no legislative over site. This will be a big issue for 2,000,000+ firearms owners in our next election in October 2019. As usual more regulations against law abiding owners rather than getting tough on crime. What can you say, its a Liberal thing.

you can now go to prison in canada, for a hate crime, for not calling a transgender idiot by whatever pronoun they whimsically invent for themselves.
