I sure do hope they relax their gun laws a lot, and make them fairly equal to what we have here in the US, in regards to not having registered firearms or owners, and concealed carry, along with open carry. Then that will just be one less reason, as to why I shouldn't move to Canada.

Matt Gurney: Good luck with that gun registry, Quebec. You’ll need it

The registry was touted by its supporters, especially in the federal Liberal party, as a public-safety measure. In fact, there’s no evidence it saved even a single life. How could it?

Canada Tried Registering Long Guns -- And Gave Up

In 2002 Canada’s auditor general released a report saying initial cost estimates of $2 million (Canadian) had increased to $1 billion as the government tried to register the estimated 15 million guns owned by Canada’s 34 million residents.

Gun lobby files complaint, says cops still using registry data

NFA President Sheldon Clare says he's complained to the federal privacy and information commissioners, along with the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, about three instances when police may have used data that were ordered destroyed. The best-known case, says Clare, is the RCMP's seizure of rifles and shotguns from flooded homes in High River, Alta., last summer. He says recordings of RCMP radio transmissions indicate officers knew where to look for firearms and how many to expect before entering homes.

Gun debate reignites with rumoured ban of Classic Green rifle

According to Solomon Friedman, a lawyer for the National Firearms Association, the PE-90 rifle, made by SAN Swiss Arms AG, a Switzerland-based small arms manufacturer, is about to be reclassified as a prohibited weapon in Canada.
Gun owners are getting ready to fight back against the ban, demanding compensation for their confiscated guns or even challenging the RCMP's reclassification.

RCMP ruling may widen rifle magazine loophole

Edward Osborne, a Calgary gun collector and competitive target shooter, imported a Czech-made VZ58 pistol, a shortened version of the popular CZ858 rifle, from the United States. He spent about $1,400 to buy the gun. But when it arrived and he tried to register it, it turned out that model wasn’t in RCMP databases. For Osborne to own it legally, RCMP technicians need to examine and classify it. The gun’s now locked in an RCMP lab, waiting for a decision. The RCMP could classify it as a restricted firearm, which means it would be treated like a traditional handgun, or as a prohibited firearm, which would make its possession illegal.

Those pesky citizens and their wanting "rights". They cause no end of problems for politicians that want to control them.


That's what comes from having to live next to another country with a Bill of rights, nothing but problems.
