RCMP Deletes ‘Grandfathering’ Option From Web Page on Rifle Bans

The RCMP deleted the option for so-called “grandfathering” this week from its web page on the government’s mass rifle confiscations, igniting concern owners will face jail unless they surrender their guns within two years.

Quite something when even your pet paid for media speaks out against your actions:

Latest gun control effort isn't merely a failure. It corrodes trust among Canadians


There is more than one way to look at the federal Liberal government's announcement of a ban on certain models of semi-automatic rifles: as illogical symbolism that will do nothing to advance public safety; as a waste of scarce public funds; as craven wedge politics.

Canadians who have followed a rigorous process to obtain a licence to purchase a firearm accept that the privilege of ownership can be revoked if it is poses an unreasonable danger. It is a far different thing to render their property unlawful for use simply so that the government can be seen to be doing something.

In short, the government is criminalizing some people's property not because it will make anyone safer, but because it can – because it knows that the political benefits far outweigh any loss in popularity among people who were probably not inclined to vote Liberal in the first place.

Done. If we don't fight this tooth and nail, the next Order-in-Council will be a handgun ban.

It’s sad and we feel for our Canuck neighbors, alas we may be in a similar situation down here depending on the November 3rd outcome. Hang in and keep on fighting guys and gals.

CBC brass are just trying to save face now. Pieces of garbage could have ran that drivel months ago instead they wait until the damage is done to jump in the cool kids.

Go back to the coffers CBC, don't you have Covid19 to report on 25 hours a day? I'm sure there is a crossing guard somewhere you haven't interviewed.

No disrespect to crossing guards. :wave:

RCMP Officer: Banned guns are “not assault rifles or military weapons”

The article has resurfaced recently as firearms and sport shooting groups have shared it on social media networks to highlight that expert opinion understands that carbine rifles like the AR-15 are not “military-style assault rifles”, as anti-gun politicians and activists claim.

Step Ten:

Help support this legal initiative:

The Shooting Edge along with Target Sports Canada and some other companies, has decided to initiate a legal challenge on the Trudeau government's sporting rifle gun ban. Although we hope there are going to be other challenges mounted by other firearms interest groups across the country, we believe that a compelling case needs a compelling victim and no one has been hit harder than individual small business firearm retailers in this country.

New facts prove the utter uselessness of Trudeau's gun ban

The RCMP claim Wortman’s fourth murder weapon – another handgun – was “sourced in Canada.” But that is most likely because it was Const. Heidi Stevenson’s sidearm. Wortman stole that one off her body when he killed the Mountie after their two cars collided.

Yet in their infinite “progressive” wisdom, the Liberals and their supporters have convinced themselves Wortman and others like him can easily be stopped before they act out their murderous fantasies.

It’s a snap, they claim. Just take away guns from law-abiding hunters, farmers, target shooters and collectors.

That’ll do it!

Don’t try very hard to stop the illegal import of firearms, or better screen gun owners for mental health or crack down on street gangs and the drug trade or keep track of the nearly 500,000 Canadians who have been banned from possessing guns.

(Legal gun owners have to register their addresses with the RCMP, while people banned from owning guns because of previous convictions for violent crimes, do not.)

Federal gun grab puts politics ahead of safety

Unfortunately, it seems Ottawa isn’t interested in constructive solutions. Instead, the federal government seems to prefer a big, noisy, politically charged spectacle. They want an election issue. This is why you see the Liberals adopt political terms used in the gun control debate south of the border. How many times have federal officials used the term “assault style” or “military grade” in describing the firearms they plan to ban? These terms are not weapon classifications, rather they are marketing terms for a political campaign. They are designed to evoke fear of both firearms and the hunters, farmers, ranchers, and sport shooters who own them. Alienating these folks while expecting them to voluntarily hand over their property is a policy doomed to backfire.

Add a BOLT ACTION shotgun (added today due to "scary looks"), the Single Shot Ruger # 1, and numerous British Double Rifles to the list of those Prohibited.

Still think they are only after their mis-named "military assault rifles"?

A collaborative response to a comprehensive attack

A historic day is upon us, thanks to the Liberal government.

Never before have we seen the uniting of our community, or the activation of so many gun owners as we are seeing right now, and it’s only just begun.

In a rare show of unity, over 50 Canadian organizations, representing millions of members, from every province across the country, have joined forces in opposing the arbitrary and punitive “gun ban” by a government who fails to address crime. This is just the first step in a collaborative reaction, to a very comprehensive attack.
