I can’t believe he actually said that!


All they do is lie, and make strange rambling, off topic statements.

Off topic but look up the statement made by Liberal MP Pam Damoff in the house about the power of vaginas. Yes really.

Yep... Read that already... Insane, couldn't believe, definitely non sense.... If in China, keeping such amount of hard drugs will be sent to be executed for no excuse.

You can take drugs, drunk (LCBO is always essential service, even in the worst pandemic time)... But keeping, shooting a BB gun will be prohibited... So stupid... No even mention I working hard everyday and get as much as those never need to work, want to work....

People are trying. General chatter about how off the rails the government has become. Gun control is a symptom of that.

I don't know how this is ever going to work as the CFO is now totally unable to have a live person answer the telephone. I have been trying to ascertain the status of my PAL renewal (expires July 14/22) which was mailed to them on April 9/22 and received by them on April 13/22. I've been calling them for 3 days and just get telephone robots, and sometimes I'm not even allowed to hold. They simply say too busy - unprecedented number of calls.

Good luck to anyone trying to sell/buy a firearm!

Bill

If they got your renewal on time, you don't really need to worry about it. The backlog is about 6 months.

From the CCFR today:
In Ottawa yesterday evening, using the prestigious Chateau Laurier hotel as a backdrop, Justin Trudeau gathered a group of anti gun activists and Liberal Ministers to deliver a massive sucker punch to the Canadians firearm community and industry. The usual smug non-answers followed the press conference as journalists tried to make sense of the outright assault on legal handgun owners.

So what's in the bill? Let's review:

Handgun "Freeze": Rather than opting for the provincial or municipal handgun bans he promised in a variety of election campaigns, Trudeau announced a "freeze" on the sale, transfer, import and buying of legal handguns in Canada.

The Federal Liberals state they hope to have this in place by the fall of 2022, but it needs to follow the democratic process. In the meantime, we suggest that you go handgun shopping immediately.

If you are having trouble finding stock of the model(s) you are interested in, consider using our Business Member Directory to find retailers you may not be aware of.

The far-reaching implications of this is that we are one generation away from the end of handgun sports. IPSC, IDPA, Cowboy Action, many other dynamic shooting genres will die with us. The next generation, nor any new shooters, will ever be able to buy a handgun for sport shooting if this receives royal assent.

The old Bill C-21 brought back: most of the legislation seems to be a rebirth of the old C-21 from the last parliamentary session, minus the provision for a provincial handgun ban (for obvious reasons), and the codifying of the mandatory "buyback" for the guns banned back in May of 2020.

Domestic Violence: A new provision added makes anyone who has a restraining order against them, or a domestic violence charge, unable to acquire a PAL, and those who already have them will have it revoked. I think all Canadians can agree, we don't want violent abusers to have guns, but without clarification on qualifiers, this measure is easily open to abuse. Watch for more on this at the committee stage.

Evergreening of Classifications: The new C-21 has a built-in provision that will make it very difficult for future government's to reclassify prohibited firearms. Of course, nothing is impossible, but it will require a great deal of encouragement. Restricted certificates would also "expire" upon reclassification of firearms, denying gun owners the opportunity for a Section 74 challenge.

Mag dump: Minister Mendicino said that he will be tabling regulations to ensure that no long gun magazine can ever accommodate more than the legal limit of cartridges, regardless of caliber or action. They've also added a new criminal code offence for modifying a magazine - solving a problem that doesn't exist.

Red/Yellow Flags: Again, another set of measures that already exist. Law Enforcement has the full weight of their power to seize and remove firearms already, but this appeases a group of under-informed women's groups and anti gun lobbyists.

Airsoft Ban: We were almost surprised to see the resurrection of airsoft bans brought back into the new C-21. This has nothing to do with public safety, and everything to do with ideology. Liberals obviously don't want people "playing" gun related games. They are attacking our culture at every level.

The CCFR will vigorously oppose this bill.


Now real gang bad-ass will cheering for the new bill as they could do whatever they want thereafter and legal citizens will not stand a chance to against them. Anti-gun groups just doesn't see that if a bad guy want get any weapons, including guns, they can always get them. And politicians just want to gather more vote tickets from those people, as they know majority of our people is neutral and will not say no if they tried to ban guns (and they are also OK for not banning guns).
And just in my opinion, people injected with drugs are more dangerous as they may do anything once out of control and yet liberals made it legal for weed and tend to loose up for other drugs.

Shooting Edge said yesterday, that they had a 6 hour lineup. What if the Libs are working with the gunshops? Gunshop calls up Turdeau and says that their gun sales are down. Turdeau says, “no problem. I gotcha.”

Our dear leader says that he is not punishing us... I'm not sure that I don't feel punished, I am sure that I feel harassed and persecuted and I sure as hell don't feel rewarded, valued, or understood.
