    Anyone on the fence about a new firearm, do it before May 18.

    After the 18th all new and used sales must be recorded again, RCMP is re opening their long gun registry. Retailers must keep records for 20 years and private sales need authorization from the firearms centre to sell everything from your single shot .22s to your .338 lapua.

    yup, sold all mine because I have a baby on the way.. no responsible parent would own deadly out of control objects with a baby in the house….

    but! There’s definitely some people that’ll need a rifle for this bear season or this moose(haha) season, so maybe just maybe they are private people and will want to do their shopping prior.

    Where’d you hear this?


    Seems like a good time for folks to get into archery - perfectly reasonable explanation for why a guy still hunts despite having sold all his guns…
    If it cant be done with one shot, it shouldn't be done.

    Bill C-71 Restrictions Start This Month on Buying/Selling ‘Non-Restricted’ Guns

    Source: Canada Gun News: Week of 2022 May 02
    05 May 2022

    TheGunBlog.ca — The Canadian government will start enforcing new restrictions on government-licensed gun owners this month, as the governing Liberal Party continues its political and regulatory attacks against hunters, sport shooters and firearm collectors.

    Details


    • The regulations stem from Bill C-71, a law the Liberals passed in 2019.
    • The measures take effect on May 18, according to an Orders in Council dated 29 April and published online today.
    • They apply only to government-licensed firearm users and businesses.
    • The restrictions include:

      1. “Non-Restricted” Firearm Transfers: It will be a crime for any licensed gun owner to buy, sell or give away any “Non-Restricted” rifle or shotgun without explicit permission for the transfer from the Registrar of Firearms in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police - Canadian Firearms Program.
        • It will require contacting the RCMP to request a reference number for the transaction.
        • It applies even to all licence holders, include a spouse who wants to give a rifle or shotgun to their spouse, or a parent who wants to give a rifle or shotgun to their child.

      2. Gun Store Registry: Gun stores will be required to store the personal details of licensed buyers of “Non-Restricted” rifles and shotguns for 20 years, in a violation of personal privacy.


    • Other restrictions also kick in, but those are the biggies for most PAL holders and businesses (in my opinion).


    How much compliance they will realize, considering the vast majority have never been and currently are not registered, is anyone's guess

    Yes.
    Full blown registry is back and more.
    They have transferred the registry onto the gun owners and gun shops.

    I was getting my bear tag today at the Regional District office and they asked me if I hunt with the bow.
    I thought that's odd, I don't recall having been asked that before.
    So probably something to do with this new law.
