I'm sure the anti-gun CFOs from the provinces and territories will be stepping up to fill any vacuum with a bunch of made up laws in short order and the even more anti-gun RCMP will be reclassifying as many NRs to Rs and Ps as fast as they possibly can.

There is a sports store in Athabasca that swiped my PAL when I bought a box of ammo. And the Canadian Tire in Whitecourt wanted to record all my info into a book which was just hanging from a string outside the display case. So I just left.
I have never been asked to show my PAL to buy ammo, at most they just ask if I have one, and when I ask if they want to see it, I just get "no, thats okay, as long as you have it on you".
How do you verify if someone has a valid pal in order to sell them a gun on the EE? Call RCMP and verify?
Oh - obviously you should have the PAL number, and first/last name.
