    It will be interesting to see how many components of the Bill are front and centre during the upcoming public consultations (as announced in the 2016 federal budget) on "ways to get handguns and assault rifles off the streets." It is obvious that the Bill was timed to coincide with these discussions. By introducing in the Senate first, it will be ready for the House by the time the consultations are complete. The Liberals have the numbers in the Senate. I expect some version of the Bill will make its way to parliament.

    Brace yourselves, this could get ugly...

    I told my MP what the Bill would mean for centralized storage at the indoor range in his riding. Tens of thousands of firearms all crowded into the same facility as the curlers, judo and swimmers. The bill would be chaos for the provinces which regulate hunting and game populations. I also reminded him that the bill would be an unfunded liability on the provinces, municipalities and non-profits.
    Proud of my country, not happy with my government.

    Unless people are ready to loose it all they will gain nothing.

    The Bill as it currently stands is unconstitutional, as it discriminates on the basis of geographic location. People in rural areas do not have access to safe storage ranges or secure transport and can never own handguns..

    This senator has tried something like this bill before. It got shot down* after its second reading. Lets hope the same things happen.

    The fact that our own politicians are looking into any draconian way to re-classify something that is already restricted, makes me concerned.
    They do need to find another hobby... Perhaps genetically modifying future generations and remove the stupid gene?

    Are they also targeting the non AR15 style rifle as well?
