Just to clarify, this isn’t exactly accurate. While we do ban a number of assault rifles, semi-automatics and handguns, we do permit several long guns (including some semi-automatics) and many handguns…which is a fortunate or me and several of the guys I shoot with at the range would feel really silly at having paid for all these papers with government logos on them
That said we are very restrictive on the transport of non-hunting weapons and most public carry is prohibited. :shrug:
On the topics at hand our federal politicians have been very flip about Canada’s participation in hunting ISIS, using it to score political points. Hopefully they’ll carry out their duties with more reflection from this point forward and realize their decisions impact lives here and abroad. If we’re going to commit people to danger we need to ensure they can respond and protect themselves.
