Our Canadian friends lucked out, this draconian bill died in senate after the sponsor retired. Bill was up for reading and debate, but this anti-gun whacko retired, and thus the bill is dropped.
The private member’s bill, titled “Strengthening Canadians’ Security and Promoting Hunting and Recreational Shooting Act” and known as S-223, that sought to introduce sweeping changes to the Criminal Code and Firearms Act that would almost entirely eliminate lawful firearm ownership in Canada has been dropped from the Senate Order Papers on Thursday.
According to the bill’s text the Firearms Act would undergo a massive overhaul to include incredibly draconian restrictions. Such changes include the reclassification of all restricted firearms and non-restricted semi-automatic, centre-fire guns as “circumscribed firearms”; the prohibition of all firearms in Canada except hunting rifles, guns used at shooting clubs, and collectors’ firearms; making only hunting firearms legal to possess anywhere but at a shooting range; limit the transport of “circumscribed firearms” to sanctioned transportation companies; replace registration certificates with “inscription certificates; repeal most of the Common Sense Firearms Licensing Act; and prohibit the storage of circumscribed firearms int he homes of licensed gun owners.
