This old boy is saying what everyone is thinking. Good on him.
Assault pistols will be the next..,,oh sorry JT already took pistols out of the hands of legal owners.
It wouldn't surprise me if he did try to ban crossbows, seeing as even fewer Canadians have any connection to bow hunting than to firearms.Archery will be next I think. There’s some pretty potent crossbows out there these days that are shooting fast speeds and now even multi-bolt options.

340 FPS = 373 km/h or 232 mph.
This one is 510 FPS = 560km/h or 348 mph.
These will be next, or soon I fear.
I believe its the good old "try to look like they're doing something" method of governing.Personally I think you will see a minority of legal gun owners handing over their firearms in the end. I suspect a lot of hunting firearms will “fall off the boat into the water/bog, couldn’t recover it”. None of this, of course, will do anything to reduce real gun violence, or violence for that matter.
Back when I was becoming a teenager and getting interested in hunting and guns, my mom made me dad sell his old single shot Baikal 12ga (wish I had that now, nice hardwood stock etc). She tried to explain her logic that guns are dangerous. I remember saying “you better tell dad to sell the shovels in the shed and my baseball bat then”.
I could have the same argument with the current government; at best, they’re trying to “look like they’re doing something”. At worst, they’re trying to disarm their citizens for no good reason.
Certain crossbows are already banned, as are Blowpipes and some ninga equipment.It wouldn't surprise me if he did try to ban crossbows, seeing as even fewer Canadians have any connection to bow hunting than to firearms.
Good thing we have an election coming up soon
That attempt would be an even bigger waste of time & garner even more criticism, than the argument that...
"illegal crossbows are being used in crimes every day, so instead of focusing on reducing the importation of these illegal bows, we will take legally purchased bows away instead..."
Bows & arrows, banned. Brought to you by the same folks who decided to tax you on the 2nd most common element in the universe.
I'll be honest, I'm glad I'm not the only one tho thinks this waySo let’s spend x billion dollars on a registry “if it saves just one life it will be worth it,”
Everyone in high places understands that a population without firearms is less trouble to strongarm than a population with firearms. We've essentially given up on putting much effort into controlling low-level crime, so we must turn to keeping the honest part of the population honest before they start taking matters into their own hands. That means making it hard for people to act out, and coming down hard on those who do.At worst, they’re trying to disarm their citizens for no good reason.
People who say "You can't put a value on human life", haven't worked for an insurance company or understand what they do. They can even tell you how much your pinkie is worth.That expression is a total nonstarter. There’s plenty of other places where billions have real lives to save. And there’s only so many billions. When I hear that expression it’s useful in helping me know how close I should listen to the person lol

CCFR has launched a new letter writing program called Scrap C21. They've included a lot of interesting suggestions on what to include in a letter or social media post, and a link to the various C-21 committee members. It's a pretty good attempt at further mobilizing the gun community.
