Canada to Outlaw Mini-14?

Reading the ABC News online today, it said that Canada plans to outlaw "Assault Rifles" and the Mini-14 very soon.
No further details.
Don't shoot the messenger...

Maybe they should outlaw mass shootings while they are at it.

No surprise to me either.

O Canada! Apparently all those restrictive gun laws they've passed over the years haven't worked. Despite the laws, the recent Nova Scotia mass Shooting was the worst in Canada's history.

How will the new laws fair any better? If they're going to ban "Military style firearms" AKA "Weapons of war" as the American left terms it, they'll have to put common pump-action shotguns on the ban list as well. Those have been weapons of war since before WWI and still are to this day.

Trudeau is just another below averge politician with no imagination. Most if not all of the guns the shooter used in the Nova Scotia Shooting were unlicensed. He wasn't following the laws that were in place. Good luck putting another law on paper that criminals will ignore. God help Canadian citizens as their country is transformed into a penal colony.

By the way, at least 9 of the 22 Nova Scotia victims died in house fires set by the assailant. None of those 9 were shot. Maybe they should ban matches while they're at it.

Gun laws won’t stop criminals.

And just to put this out there,.....

My dad was born in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan. Grandparents came to the US when he was 11. They stayed in Illinois with the old family until dad was about 17. They decided to head back north, dad stayed to finish high school. He went on to join the Army, as a Canadian citizen. He got his US citizenship while in the Army. He got out in ‘63......

Have a good deal of family still in Canada, do I am a bit vested in this topic

Details are still to trickle in, but apparently there were two long guns and two pistols used. The perp was banned from owning a firearm, so that didn't work out too well; but blame the gun, not the perp... A conflicting report was that at least one of the long guns was a shotgun, but Canada isn't releasing much info about the types of weapons, and probably won't until after they ban the Mini-14 and the AR-15 completely.

And it is done. Just like that.

One day it's ok and the next it is not.

All assault type weapons have a two year moratorium to cease to exist!!

This was not a surprise for us in the north...

My family had a lot of trouble in the last two years, so I already sold almost all my firearms during this period because money was tight, but I kept an AR15 that is now a prohibited rifle. I am still ''authorized'' to use my 1911a1 at the shooting range and that's it.... But the shooting range is closed because of the Kung flu.

A lot of these mini 14 and other non restricted(so they were not registered) rifles that have been banned will probably finish in the streets because this is now the easiest way for someone who pocess one of these rifle and wish to sell it without loosing money. So, I think this insane ban will feed the black market with a lot of new rifles. They will use this as an excuse to ban more guns. Not because there is a logic to it, only because they want to disarm the people.

Honestly, I am very concerned about what individual freedoms will become in the next decades. I fear that the only option will be some kind of revolution/civil war if free people want to stay free.

I had a discussion with a family member about this recently, when Pete Buttigieg was still a candidate. Apparently, his general public stance on firearms laws is: Citizens should not possess "weapons of war". So I ask, "which war"? If Vietnam, then the AR design was in use by the military. How about Korean War? Ban M1 Garand possession? I have an 1880 Springfield Trapdoor carbine that was used by the military. Weapon of war?

The bottom line is: it is much easier to control and ban inanimate objects, such as firearms, vehicles, substances, and the like, rather than tackle the sociological roots of undesirable human behavior and mental illness.

Tho bottom line is : after the guns are banned any undesirable thought or human behavior is much easier to control.

Australia & Canada need to wake up and demand their liberty from this sick socialism that has spread over the years. We Americans better stand up against it before we fall to it. If we fall to the world will be in a sad state indeed.

I was living in England when they took all the guns in '97. The crime rate skyrocketed and has never come back down.

The Sage of Pennsylvania has been proven correct every time.

Ultimately, those same folks end up loosing both.

How incredibly sad.

With the ambitions China has in the area, if I was an Aussie I would want to be armed to the teeth.

Yep, and in response, when they disarmed citizens, they had to arm the police!

Things are very bad for us in Canada right now but we are still in the Kung Flu crisis for a long time, so things can change in the years to come. With the economic crash caused by the current situation, a lot of people may have a lot of financial difficulties and this could lead to more violence in our societies and less support from the libtard government who will not have money anymore. I think(and I hope!) this situation could change the political and social views of many snowflakes. The day they will feel that their life is in danger and they can only count on themselves, perhaps they will finally understand those ''redneck with guns''.

But yes, in Canada we really need to wake up. And my dear neighbors of the south, you also need to wake up because you already made too much compromises. We should have the right to go in our homeshop and build a real machine gun, smg or assault rifle with the ''fun switch'' and use it on our land without being considered a ''ciminal'' for it. If we cannot do this, too much compromises have been made.

Leave and come here to the US. And don't do it legally. Just come on over like the parasites from S-hole countries. We'll treat you like Royalty!

Bring your ID documents with you. Get a drivers license from the State of your choice, then everything is good from that point on. We'll give you free Cheese and money. Just claim poverty, and illegal status and all is good!!

I would like to move with you guys, but I'm the father of two young kids so I am not willing to move right now without the conscent of my wife and kids. But we live close to the borders, just one hour north of Maine. Perhaps I could buy a small piece of land in northern Maine and build a small lodge on it? Could be a first step in the right direction. One thing for sure, I would be interested to be on your side to defend your right to bear arms.

We all know the drill, we all know the arguments. What is telling about this is not what the government is saying, but what they are not saying. The shooting will be used as an opportunity to advance an agenda. Nothing more, nothing less.

It's a socialist country with a socialist in charge. It appears he has all socialists on his cabinet. It was a matter of time before something like this happened and as per the socialist doctrine, never let a good crisis go to waste.

I gather that the Canadian form of government allows this quick action to occur, without any representative process similar to legislation in the U.S. Congress.

Not willing to move your family to safety without consent of the wife and kids?

So your perfectly fine with them consenting themselves to possibly being in harm's way?

As far as I'm concerned the kids have no say in the matter & the wife can pound sand.

It's your duty to protect them. Is that not why we support and champion the idea that the right to self protection comes not from government but from God, so that we may protect our loved ones and our liberty?

Attitudes such as yours is why Canada has such leadership as it has now.

Take your balls from your wife's purse and stand up for liberty.

Y'all need a few guillotines to kinda give the leadership something to think about......

Load one on a flatbed truck and park it in front of your parliamentary hall....pretty sure some will have a clue what's next.

We need a few in front of our Capitol building.....and the J. Edgar Hoover Bldg.....CIA HQ in Langley, VA.....well, just about any corner within the Beltway. LOL
