    Assault weapons ban in Canada

    National review has a article about Trudeau announcing an assault weapons ban, with little detail. I guess nobody should be surprised after the that nutcase in Nova Scotia.
    Anyone have more details?

    My sympathies for our neighbors to the north.

    I read somewhere that nine of the 22 people died of arson. Is he planning to ban fire?

    Yeah, not my favourite day.

    I fully intend to dig in and pursue court challenges. My goal is to delay until this government falls, which, as a minority government, it very well may.

    Most aggravating of all, this was done through an Order in Council, which allows for certain types of regulatory changes without legislative process. The legislature is currently disrupted by the coronavirus restrictions, so this is very much being carried out behind closed doors.

    I don't have time to edit the flag, so just imagine a maple leaf.

    Help me to understand Canadian rules of government - does the PM have the ability to simply decree a law or are gun rights in Canada eh on such a precarious perch that the PM can just draft up rules on his own similar to our EOs?

    Sad day for Canada and proof that the tyrannical progressives will use any tragedy to advance their agenda.

    Sorry to hear. But not unexpected, given Trudeau’s Party was re-elected in October.
    Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.

    Pardon my ignorance, I thought the cousins up north pretty much lost everything already. How is this different? Some "fun" guns were previously allowed?

    Absolutely. In fact those floppy headed bastards could have things we couldn’t even get in the “free states” after the Bush Ban. Now even the humble Mini14 is banned. 😔
