    So does that mean we have more AR15s per capita than the USA ?

    I call bull#### on that claim... lefty media would have been all over that and made a point of mentioning type of rifle used especially if it resembles their non defined definition of an assault rifle ....

    It’s complete and total insanity!

    Blair mentions something about having the firearms shipped by Canada Post. I think he meant that's the way we get them, but I wondered if that meant he was thinking of having them picked up that way. e.g. having every RPALer snail mail their firearm to an RCMP building in Ottawa. Could be a fun couple weeks at the post office, with RCMP officers watching to see if any packages get misdirected.

    But nope. Based on the costing, below, it doesn't look like he's going to try that.

    It never occurred to me to do the math, until just now. I just assumed that 250,000 * 1,500 = 600 million.
    Turns out 250,000 * 1,500 = $375 million.

    So what are they spending $225 million on? ($600 million - $375 million = $225 million)

    Software, advertising, and pickup? $225 million seems excessive for that.
    Error in the 250,000 is too low?
    Error in the $1,500 is too low?

    $1,500 is similar to the New Zealand buyback amount. I read somewhere that NZ spent an average of $1800 NZD per firearm, and converting that to CAD is $1,516 per firearm.

    Every vote for Bernier is a vote for another justin majority. Every vote for justin is a vote for handgun & semi-auto bans, and everything else the Coalition For Gun Control can dream up. Australia rules, ammo restrictions, inspections, then nothing.

    i wouldn't worry to much,,if by the some incredible chance the Turd gets in again,it will be a minority,he had 4 years to get C71 done,a Bill that does absolutely nothing to gun owners other than a slight inconvenience to call and check the license of a buyer,assuming most bother with complying with the bull####,which everybody i know will never bother to do,it took them 4 years to get that done,,can you imagine a buy back or confiscation stupidity,he'll be out way before this dream Libtard ban ever has a chance to see the light of day.LOL..and they way Turdo stuttering idiot keeps scrwing himself into the ground more and more every day,,i doubt he and his Liberal clowns will be running Canada in a few months,there's a lot more chances the Liberal party goes EXTINCT,and it can't come to soon,Canada needs to exterminate the Liberal disease.

    Maybe the turds will bring in boatloads of “foreign guest workers” to collect our guns once they get a rough idea of what the overtime bill from the RCMP would be to do the job of confiscation????

    Yes and the way things are going I could see those guest workers having blue helmets.

    What are the odd that ALL the police officers or even politicians will turn in their weapons or will there be some wiped off for them to keep. Im not saying the police will get a full pass but what are the odds they get special privileges to keep their property.

    Its pretty common knowledge that there are different rules for the public and law enforement/government. What would put us in jail is only a slap on the wrist for them.
    Courage isn't the lack of fear, but the action in spite of it.

    The police members with the firearms will be forced to comply as anyone else. There are no "different rules".
