- “…classifications are based on risk to public safety.”
- “Some firearms are classified on the basis of their physical characteristics, such as barrel length or type of action; others are specified by make and model in the Criminal Code and its supporting regulations.”
- “Due to the risk to public safety, some firearms may only be transported for purposes such as…”

EXCERPT: The Court ruled that the CFO’s power under s. 58(1) of the Firearms Act, to attach conditions to a licence or authorization, is not unfettered. The CFO cannot use that power to create rules of general application, akin to legislation.

THE GUN BLOG: Today is the 35th anniversary of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The document’s legal and political significance and symbolism are as important as they are controversial for all Canadians, especially those of us who buy, sell, own, use, trade or work with guns.

Special thanks to MP Brad Trost for trying to get the Liberals to provide these important statistics to Parliament. Why won’t the Liberals answer a question that the Conservative Government answered in 2006 and the RCMP answered in response to an Access to Information Act request in 2011?
RCMP ATIP RESPONSE: NUMBER OF PERSONS CONSIDERED TOO DANGEROUS TO OWN FIREARMS – RCMP FILE #: GA-3951-3-3927/11 – November 8, 2011 – http://nfa.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/RCMP-ATI-Too-Dangerous-to-Own-Guns.pdf
CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO BREITKREUZ ORDER PAPER QUESTION Q-7 – MAY 12, 2006: How many individuals are there in Canada who are considered too dangerous to own firearms? http://cssa-cila.org/garryb/inthehouse/Questions/2006/may_12b.htm
BILL SUMMARY: This enactment amends the Firearms Act to eliminate the expiry of certain firearms licences and to provide for the relinquishment of licences. It also requires individuals to update their licence application information every 10 years and provides for the suspension of licences in certain circumstances.
EXCERPT: Honest researchers with integrity would ask the question and see what conclusion the evidence supports. These people started with their conclusion (guns are bad and hurt children) and kept falsifying the data until it “proved” their preconceived notion. That’s not research. That’s propaganda. And the media party gleefully spread the fake news.
