Regardless of your beliefs a word of caution on the Liberal Governments firearms regulations.
Some time back when the government brought in the then new firearms act ( I believe it was bill C-68) there was a very controversial section in it that made it enabling legislation.
Enabling legislation is used to allow the government to function on a day to day basis and permits the government and or bureaucrats to pass legislation without the tedious process of taking things through parliament and being debated (a fundamental part of our democracy). This allows government to function when parliament is not in session.
Enabling legislation was not intended to be used to pass any legislation that attaches a criminal penalty or to seize legally owned private property. At that time, it was noted that no other democratic country allowed enabling legislation to be used as such. Canada went ahead with this confident that we would maintain nothing but the purest of intentions and the usage would only be under the most crucial or time sensitive situations.
Just pause for a moment and think carefully about this: We now have a government passing legislation that allows the incarceration of a citizen without that legislation undergoing the scrutiny of Parliament or the senate.
That should scare the dickens out of even the most faithful and trusting.
One other point: The Prime Minister has stated that the listed firearms serve no legitimate hunting purpose yet the indigenous population is exempt from this law as it is stated by Justice Minister David Lametti .
]There will be an exemption for indigenous people exercising a section 35 hunting right. (parliamentary petitions 2576 and 2574)
Which ever way you feel you should give these points some thought.
