Ottawa’s new rules for selling firearms effectively create a long gun register

The facts do not support the claim that ownership of ordinary guns is a threat to public safety.


Want to give your son or daughter a firearm? Perhaps to teach them the safety of firearms?

Don’t call RCMP first … don’t do it.

After May 18th, it is illegal to give a rifle to a child or grandchild without first getting permission from the RCMP, even if you already own the firearm you want to share.

Do you feel safer than you are now?

May 11th, Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendicino, the seller Ask RCMP Before transferring unlimited firearms. This is required even if both have a firearm license.Of course, having a firearm license means that you Scrutiny by RCMP And took it successfully Firearm safety course..

An “unrestricted firearm” is a regular rifle or shotgun Ottawa apple. Despite this term, many complex restrictions apply to owning a rifle or shotgun in Canada.

Under the new rules after May 18, owners must first contact RCMP for permission before allowing a firearm to be sold, traded, rented, or gifted. This includes personal sales and gifts to the family. For communities concerned about criminal violence and property, the new rules certainly sound like unnecessary busy work.

From May 18thTo transfer or sell a rifle or shotgun, you must provide RCMP with the following information:

  • Of the transferor [seller] License number
  • Of the transferee [buyer] License number
  • Firearm manufacturer, model, type, and serial number (if any)
  • Reference number issued by the RCMP registrar of the firearm
  • The date the reference number was issued

Until the regulations are published, it is impossible to know if these new regulations will stop selling at Gunshow. Most firearm shows take place on weekends when firearms registrars are closed.

For decades All that was needed to give, buy, and sell rifles and shotguns was what the buyer and seller had to do. Show each other Their firearm license. It worked. The government has not created convincing evidence that illegal sales have spread to owners of possession and acquisition licenses or sources of criminal guns. You don’t have to crack down on honest people.

The Facts do not support the claim Ownership of that regular gun is a threat to public safety.Police know that gangs get guns smugglingHowever Liberals refuse To strengthen border security Keep violent criminals in jail..

The government is replacing wise policies with insults.Instead, the truth is The owner of the gun is a credit To Canada.

This is the beginning of a new long gun registry that the government has promised not to reintroduce.

These new limits are some Bill C-71 This was declared two years ago, but is slowly and gradually being introduced as the Liberal Party hires more bureaucrats. The Liberal Party is silent about how these new restrictions will cost taxpayers.

business You should keep inventory and sales records related to rifles and shotguns for 20 years and share those records whenever police request. Not only does this effectively create a new long gun registry, but it also offloads costs to small businesses.

Section 102 The Firearms Act provides that the Chief Firearms Officer can inspect and copy all store records at any time without a warrant.

Section 101 According to the criminal law, improper records management is a crime that can be punished with five years’ imprisonment.

In simple terms, sections 101 and 102 mean that these records belong to the government, not the firearms store, and if the records of firearms and firearm owners are effectively owned by the government, it is the gun’s. It is a register.

Bill C-71 forces firearms retailers to create, pay, and maintain the equivalent of the new Longgun Registry. Most gun stores are small businesses, so the cost of these additional requirements will result in some outages. This is in addition to the losses forced on firearm retailers by Justin Trudeau’s 2020 ban. The Canadian Sporting Arms and Ammunition Association estimates that retailers will almost lose $ 1 billion Inventory that cannot be sold or returned to the supplier under the 2020 Order in Council.
