Canadian Gun Control: Survey

Everytime I cross into Canada I am grilled by Canadian customs agents whether or not I am bringing in any firearms. I guess I fit a "profile" of some sort, maybe it's just my NRA decal on my window?

Anyway, I have often wondered what our Canadian brothers and sisters think regarding Canadian gun control laws. Are you for or against or somewhere in between? I just read this morning where a bill is being introduced in the House of Commons to abolish the registration of long arms. What is your opinon?

They tried to introduce a Gun registry Bill a few years back, it was a complete failure, and the really sad part is some people got scared by the government, so they brought in prized World War I and II rifles to be destroyed by the police. It wasted millions if not billions of dollars. As for us though, we might of held on to one or two...or all of ours. Guns are frowned upon in Canada. It's like when you have one you're a criminal.

And don't worry about the Canada customs guys....like TinMan once said they're glorified Wal-Mart greeters.
They are bastards for anything.

i think Canadian gun laws are a joke.
i don't have a problem with restrictions on pistols, but the long arm registry is total bullsh1t.
and yes the border guards can be dicks, my dad is Texan and whenever he comes up here to see his kids, i have 2 brothers up here too, he gets harrassed something fierce. i have been with him several times when this happened, they make us stop, they emty out the truck and spread all our stuff all over the place.
not fun.

A little off-topic. The last time i was in Vancovour with the boat. They used dogs to search for guns and drugs. The dog got all excited and I thought WTF, I know the boat is clean. Well their dog found my dogs food. The Canadian Customs and myself had a good laugh over that one. I could tell they we wondering too.

I for one, think the "billion dollar" gun registry, was and still is, a complete waste of time and more importantly money that we don't have. Criminals are still gunna get there hand guns illegally. It doesn't matter if the gun is registered or not! The worst part of this whole debockle, are that Farmers can't have varmit guns anymore without the proper PLC, PAR, FAC, registrations, etc... I ain't got time or money to waste on gettin' all the forms and licenses. I think that if the Canadian government wants to crack down on illegal firearms, then target handguns! There is "ZERO" need for handguns in Canada, you're not allowed to hunt with one, so why have one! Make hand guns 100% illegal, regardless of reason, except for law enforcement, and leave rifles and shotguns alone.

ZERO need? Sounds like a personal opinion, rather than a supportable fact. How about self-defense? Is there ZERO need for self-defense? Are there no assaults where you live? If you are threatened by a "bad guy", will he wait if asked, while you call the police for protection? If you DO call the police, do they arrive in time to do anything more helpful than take statements from witnesses?

Are you SERIOUS?!
Sounds like quite a culture difference between your neighborhood and mine.

No, it's not a personal opinion. I love hand guns.

Yes... you are 100% right. That's exactly what we do. We have far less assaults, B&E's, forceful entries, etc... here than you do. I'm not saying we don't have crime, just "A LOT LESS" Once again, there is ZERO need to own a handgun in Canada! The law states that every time that a hand gun is to be transported @ any time, to any place, for any reason, for any length of time, that you have to report it. You have to state reason, length of time, how it's being transported and when it's returning home. And self defence! If an intruder slips and falls in your home and hurts himself... YOU can be sued!! Now add a gunshot to the kneecap... and your doing jail time for some dickhead breaking into your house. Now, every one here is gunna play tough guy and say "Just shoot first and there will only be one story!" Real life doesn't work that way. And yes, we live in completely different worlds my friend. Just look @ the difference in fuel pricing, we might as well be on different continents. I pay $1.30 more a gallon than you! And we refine it here! The difference between Canada and the States is night and day. Yes we love our families the same, but we do not need hand guns. Think of it this way. If there were ZERO handguns in the States today, none left, all gone. Would you need one?

Sure, there's still bad guys who would love nothing more than to rape, steal, kidnap and murder!! That's not going to stop them from doing bad things to innocent people. I'd rather have a gun for self protection than a knife.

But therein lies the problem with society, we shouldn't need anything to protect ourselves from anyone.
