Canada Scraps Firearms Registry
Two NDP MPs broke party ranks to vote with the government Wednesday night in the final House of Commons vote in favour of scrapping the long-gun registry.

Bruce Hyer, MP for Thunder Bay-Superior North, and John Rafferty, MP for Thunder Bay-Rainy River, voted with the Conservative Party on a bill that will end the long-gun registration requirement.

Bill C-19 passed 159 to 130 and now goes to the Senate for another round of votes and committee hearings.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10963015


Fuck that. I can live without a stupid assault rifle.

The next step here is that we need to relax the bullshit "safe storage" laws and get some sort of "castle doctrine" formally recognized in law.

Theres a guy in my province who was attacked by masked men throwing molotov cocktails at his house, while yelling "are you ready do die?" He fetched a legally-owned handgun from his safe and fired some warning shots to scare them off, then called the police. He was charged with a bunch of things and most charges were dropped but he is still on trial for "unsafe storage of a firearm" as a result.

He will eventually get off, but the damn police and prosecutor are using the legal process as the punishment. Thousands of dollars in legal fees and many days of wasted time, all for nothing.

Not quite. The AK is prohibited, but you could get an AR, however it is still in the "restricted" class. The problem with "restricted" weapons is that they are just that: restricted. They can only be discharged on a bona fide firing range (gun club, not your back yard no matter how rural), you need a special permit that only allows you to transport the weapon from your home to the club (the addresses of both places are on the permit). Magazine capacity is also limited to five rounds for restricted rifles. To me there is just no point.

Just get the regular firearms license and buy an SKS. Those are non-restricted and you can transport and fire them almost anywhere you want. There are also some cool bolt actions (i.e Ruger Gunsite Scout, 10 round .308) that I would take over a crummy Russian or Chinese POS any day.

My uncle once went to Canada to go bear hunting, they let him take all his guns and ammo across border, but made him leave his pepper spray. How stupid are those people?

This is true in all countries!
People who work for the gov't are hired based on political correctness, sexual preference, skin color, & disability.

What happens as a result is lazy incompetant unskilled un-qualified 'tards' performing civil service jobs.

I remember when my grand-dad in new brunswick died, they confiscated all his hunting guns before he was cold. He had an old .22 single shot rifle that he taught me to shoot with.

Thats fucked up. IMO people throwing molotovs at your house are trying to kill you, i dont think id have fired warning shots if i was in his position.

What was he meant to do, let them burn his house down and beat the shit out of him when he ran out because his house was on fire?

He could have had children in the house or anything, why didnt the police turn up and kick the shit out of dudes throwing petrol bombs at somebodies house?

You can buy a CZ-858 semi-auto for $650(Czechoslovakian infantry weapon of Warsaw pact days). It's non restricted, looks almost the same as an AK on the outside, but it is more accurate.
Of course the reason people want AK's is the simple elegance of it's firing mechanism. The CZ is nothing like that.

I know I got two of those CZ-858's. The problem is the ammuntion was made by communists who didn't give a phuck so some of the bullets get stuck cause their of poor quality.
