In this attempt by the RCMP to pinpoint non-restricted firearms which were made prohibited under Bill C-71, some questions should be answered.
Why must they tiptoe around, and march forward slowly in this veiled step toward confiscation?
Shouldn’t they just force people to hand them in?
This can’t be taken as anything other than an admission of weakness, and fear of taking the objective of confiscation head on.
Their strategy may work in a handful of isolated cases, but there’s no way it would work en masse.
Too many gun owners would see right through it.
|A change has recently come into force to the Firearms Act as part of Bill C-71, An Act to amend certain Acts and Regulations in relation to firearms. The change has resulted in the removal of the following conditions related to the transport of restricted/prohibited firearms from your licence:
If you wish to transport your restricted/prohibited firearm for one of the above purposes, you must apply for an Authorization to Transport to your Chief Firearms Officer. To contact your Chief Firearms Officer, please call 1 800 731-4000.
All affected licence holders will be mailed a formal notification of the changes to the Authorizations to Transport, including your current updated licence conditions.
