Anyone, have any idea whats happening with Air Gun Laws?

In 2013-2014, air guns were to be considered a firearm as is, before it was only if the Energy and Velocity together reached a certain point.

Then sometime from then to late 2015, a bill i think C-637 was put forward to amend it. The bill I believed was voted and passed, but not sure if it was intergrated.

The RCMP site, still has the old criteria listed. I'm pretty confused to whats happening. I am wondering what the Liberals are going to do now?

In 2013-2014, air guns were to be considered a firearm as is, before it was only if the Energy and Velocity together reached a certain point. They are considered a firearm if they are used illegally, e.g. pointing at someone, sticking up a bank.

Then sometime from then to late 2015, a bill i think C-637 was put forward to amend it. The bill I believed was voted and passed, but not sure if it was intergrated. Bill C-637 deals with firearms storage and transportation. See https://openparliament.ca/bills/41-2/C-637/

The RCMP site, still has the old criteria listed. I'm pretty confused to whats happening. I am wondering what the Liberals are going to do now? The government has not indicated it has plans to make changes that would deviate from what's on the RCMP site.

And to just add to the reply any air gun that shoots 500fps (and over a certain FPE 5?) is a firearm requiring a PAL license to possess and aquire new ones. If someone had a valid POL license prior and on the date of Bill C-42 being passed by the federal Conservatives then your POL would automatically renewed as a PAL upon renewal. This was passed in Sept 2015.

From your question maybe you were enquiring about the Bill C-42 as that is about all that has changed
