Canadian Gun Grabbers – Bunch of hosers doon't cha knoow?
By Steve Lee Parsons, Director
Butler, PA –-(Ammoland.com)- I just returned from visiting a relative in Canada. Since we were traveling to a remote part of Canada, I decided, as in the past, to bring along a rifle and ammo.
I filled out the appropriate one page Canadian Customs Firearms Declaration form. When I told the agent at the border crossing that I was bringing in a rifle, he looked alarmed and asked “what for?” “Protection from wildlife” was my response, which is one of the stated purposes on their Customs form.
“Well”, he replied. “They probably won’t let you in, because you have no need, but drive over to the Customs office”.
When I presented my Customs form I had to undergo a third degree questioning. Then the Customs agent asked to see the rifle (never experienced that before, but certainly a reasonable request).
He must have measured the barrel 3 times, and finally stamped the form and let us proceed into Canada with my rifle.
If you try to smuggle a handgun into Canada, you face arrest and confiscation of your vehicle.
Canadian residents are not legally allowed to own or carry any handguns, tasers, etc. for personal defense, or any business purpose. Canadian police officials in most localities have to check out and turn back in their handguns at a shift change.
You can own a rifle or shotgun, with severe limitations, although there is currently legislation on the books requiring registration of same.
Remember, in 1929 all German citizens were required to register their firearms, then in 1935, the Gestapo came and confiscated firearms, then a few years later, they came back, arrested some of the prior owners, and killed them, because they figured, once a gun owner, always a gun owner!
You cannot purchase any ammo in Canada, down to .22 caliber, without a license. This is European, Progressive, UN type gun grabbing at its finest, and it’s just a few few hours away from us.
Thank God, James Madison, and the Supreme Court for our 2nd Amendment rights.
