That's why handguns and assault weapons will always be restricted in Canada.

You want guns-everywhere and the mayhem that goes with it, move south.

Gun control simply doesn't work too well - if someone wants to kill themselves, they'll find another way if they can't get a gun. The criminals will resort to ghost guns - or 3d printed guns.

After watching this fiasco for more years than I can mention,I can only conclude that they are not doing this for "public" safety,they are doing it for their "own" safety because they are going to bring down more fascist crap on our heads.

Recent opinion polls on the top election issues show that more gun control is top of mind for 2% of Canadians.

Another massive misjudgment by Justin Trudeau on what Canadians really want. He's completely out of touch with Canadians!

Best way to control guns is to control the drug trade and the gangs - not having useless politicians shirk their responsibility, by instead attacking those that cause no problem, then patting themselves on the back as "job well done".

This useless government and the just as useless RCMP can't get the real bad guys, so to make it look like they are doing something they attack law abiding citizens.

In 2019 they were doing high 5's with their so called "Gun Restrictions" - 2 years later they are saying gun crime is up 47% - nice work you useless political piece of C***. Just like a politician to try and cover up tier stupidity and lack of foresight.

Guess they are afraid of the drug gangs - just like true cowardly politicians - no guts - just a unique talent of being able to speak a bunch of words yet say absolutely nothing.

Funny how I was brought up to believe that the Government worked for us - the voters - HA - now isn't that the joke of the century.

My suspicion is that they don't want to go after the drug gangs - might interfere with their under the table payoffs.

"Tories would repeal gun ban
Trudeau criticizes Conservative plan to repeal Liberal ban on 'assault weapons'
Assault weapon is a term used to describe a selective fire firearm or automatic weapon, these have been prohibited in Canada since the 70s
Further to this:
  • * Canada has no legislation that defines "assault weapons". We have "Unrestricted", "Restricted", and "Prohibited".

    * None of the measures that Trudeau put in place banned any "assault weapons", by any definition. The firearms that were added to the "Prohibited" list were previously either "Unrestricted" or "Restricted". No fully-automatic (or select-fire, which is still fully-automatic) firearms were previously permitted to be owned by civilians.

    * The only people in Canada that have access to - and use - "Prohibited" firearms are military and criminals. Even law-enforcement do not use "Prohibited" firearms. They do use "Restricted" firearms as a matter of execution of their duties - and are subject to their RPAL restrictions when not performing their duties.

    * Civilians are severely restricted in their use of "Restricted" firearms - they can only be used for sport at a range, and if you own one you must be a member of a range.
The Liberal support for increased legislation around firearms ownership - while not addressing the existing breaches of law and criminal activity - is just pandering for votes via lazy policing.

(Off-topic, but this all coming from a leader who's own father had a hand in Indigenous oppression - yet he's not acknowledged that stain, a leader who felt that blackface was acceptable not but 20 years ago, a leader who interfered with the criminal investigation into the SNC-Lavalin affair when it was found to have been trying to buy favour from federal parties, and a leader who prorogued parliament parliament to put a halt into the WE Charity scandal - a move he promised in 2015 that he would never do.)
I'd like to change your mind, but I don't have a fresh diaper.

Thankfully we now have 3d printed guns, which are actually very effective.

Gun control doesn't mean what some people think it means. It means only the government gets to own guns. If you think thats a good idea, I recommend reading a history book

I find it strange from one of his videos that the SS-211 shorty shotgun is unrestricted.
Good bush gun for big animals charging you or a home invader.
YouTube or Google search for Sulan Arms SS-211 range test and review.

Read the first paragraph and see how this applies directly to Trudeau and his Liberals. The Taliban are demanding everyone give up their firearms.

Once again Trudeau doubles down on stupidity. How about you go after criminals, what a bunch of dolts

snip
But it also includes new pledges, including an $800-million promise to force people who own banned assault weapons to either sell their guns back to the government or have them “rendered permanently inoperable.” The Liberals had previously said this buyback program would be voluntary.

In other efforts to curb gun violence, the party says it will ban the sale or transfer of magazines that can hold more than a legal number of bullets, and earmark $1 billion in support to provinces and territories that choose to implement a ban on handguns.

Interestingly, all assault weapons were banned in Canada in the 1970's.

Will double-banning them stop gangsters from smuggling them into Canada? :135:

^^^ So for example of a magazine that's designed to take more than 5 rounds, a SKS has a pinned mag capacity of 5 even though its designed to take 10. The SKS has a fixed mag.... so how does that work? You can't take the higher capacity magazine out-it's built into it. Oh right....just ban the SKS.
And even though I wouldn't do it, yes, you could use a SKS to bring down a deer (before some lib says 'you don't need a SKS to bring down a deer').
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

SKS is one of the most popular deer hunting rifles.

Cheap to buy, dependable, accurate enough at 100 yards. Lots of younger folks that can't afford a new Tikka or Win 70 opt for the SKS.

And ammo is cheap like borsht, Comrade!

Trudeau wants to ban every deer hunting and duck hunting firearm. Don't fool yourself thinking he's going to stop after his OIC fiasco.
