Didn't Canada pass a sweeping registration/confiscation law back in the '90s, only to have authorities abandon it after it was almost universally ignored by the Canadian general population?
The particulars escape me. I'll bet that some history majors will remember.

We did after the mass shooting at the Polytechnique in Montreal. At the time the proponents of registration of all semi auto rifles made the usual statements like “ you register your car, why not your rifles?” Wendy Cukier was the front person for the largest gun control advocacy group up here. They all claimed this was part of reasonable responsibility on the part of gun owners.

Edit: I forgot to address the outcome of the National Registration. At the time they also required at ALL firearms be registered and claimed the system would pay for itself. It ended up costing over $2 Billion dollars and was criticized heavily by our Auditor General ( similar to your GAO?) The Liberal government that created the registration was voted out and the incoming Conservatives canned the registry all together except for what are classified as “restricted class” ie handguns and semi auto rifles.

Now, when it is proposed to ban the very same firearms we registered back in the 90’s Ms Cukier simply removed her mask and now says “ Find a new hobby” I put that in quotes as she actually said that last year when the PM announced the potential bans.

Take it from us, the British, the Kiwis and the Australians, registration is a required pre condition to future confiscation.

"...not at liberty to discuss..."

Apparently not "allowed" to own a gun.

Nope, yet he still managed to get one or more, imagine that.

Last year one of our officers was shot by an at large parole violator who had just done 8 years for manslaughter. He has been out for 3 months and still managed to get a handgun. No job, no car, no financial means, living in a halfway house, monitored by a Parole officer until he went on the run.

First no surprise to me, yet never ever does this get acknowledged by the proponents of more gun control.

My aforementioned Ms Cukier is already saying pistol grips are made to allow more precise spraying of bullets. I’m not sure what her professional bona fides are in firearms design and employment.

As we all know the bad guys don’t follow laws, after all that’s part of what makes them who they are.

I remember when I was a kid seeing my Dad yelling at the TV when he saw Pierre Trudeau, Justin’s father, who was our PM back then. It’s all come full circle now as I yell at the TV every time I see the drama teacher son of Pierre.

Hi,
Well....It's no secret what the Lefts Agenda is on Firearms...

This should be a wake up call to all these People that Gun Laws (and LEO'S)...

Are useless and will not protect you when needed!

Will the Canadian Citizens see this and use this tragedy to get their Gun Rights back???

Probably not, coddled by their Government for to long, what we need to be wary of here, in the USA!!!RNGR3

There are no citizens in Canada, they are all SUBJECTS!

They came with that ban but they don't know how to collect those rifles . Because that wasn't the idea , they want legal gun owners to not move those rifles , they want to stop buying and selling those rifles to prevent a chaos.



1.they just ban what ever is dangerous for the government

2.2 days before NS shooting the world saw protesters carried rifles in Michigan.

3.2 days after NS shooting happened , with police and uniform car ,
-firearm ? They didn't report , they said hand guns and illegal came from USA and sks that illegal owned ( and SKS is not in their own lost )

To me sounds like it was a setup to take an action and ban rifles .

liberals scare to lose power while the world see protest everywhere , news and media don't show but if you search on google and youtube country by country you will see all over the world people are sharing videos of protesters.

I am not conspiracy theorist.but I can see where it came from.

We do not know what will happened in future .
I think it all depends on pandemic situation.

They reported they shut everything down until they find the vaccine, maybe they want no rifle in Citizens hand to force people.


Come on ,study shows rilfes are not involved or maybe a little small % of in any type of shooting.
What was the reason to ban rifles ?

To get the answer put yourself into a government position. The biggest enemy of any government is arm citizens.

What was the Trump answer after Michigan protest ? " very good people" , " Whitmer should make a deal with them "
