When it comes to legislation, terminology is everything. Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette introduced Bill S-223 on April 12. This bill proposes to change the categorization of “non-restricted firearm” to “hunting firearm” and “restricted firearm” to “circumscribed firearm.”
A “hunting firearm” will now be defined as:
a firearm — other than a prohibited firearm or a circumscribed firearm — that is prescribed to be a hunting firearm and that
(a) has a smoothbore barrel that is more than 470 mm long,
(b) has a striated barrel that is more than 470 mm long and that can discharge 22-calibre rimfire ammunition in a semi-automatic manner, or
(c) is designed or adapted to be fired when reduced to a length of less than 660 mm by folding, telescoping or otherwise;
What this seems to imply, is that you will be able to hunt with ONLY shotguns, smoothbore black powder, and .22 rimfire rifles.
You will not be able hunt or possess any center fire rifles for hunting purposes.
All center fire rifles might then be re-categorized as a “circumscribed firearm.”
A “circumscribed firearm” will now be defined as:
(a) a handgun that is not a prohibited firearm,
(b) a firearm — other than a prohibited firearm — that has a barrel equal to or less than 470 mm,
(c) a firearm — other than a prohibited firearm — that is capable of discharging centre-fire ammunition in a semi-automatic manner, or
(d) a firearm that is designed or adapted to be fired when reduced to a length of less than 660 mm by folding, telescoping or otherwise;
This will effectively ban all semi-automatics, as there are also new storage provisions:
17 (1) Subject to subsection (2) and to sections 19 and 20, a prohibited firearm or circumscribed firearm, the holder of the inscription certificate for which is an individual, may be possessed only at a shooting club or a storage facility recorded in the Canadian Firearms Registry.
This means that all firearms, except for “hunting firearms” and 12(6) for a gun collection, will be stored at a central storage facility.
It looks like boy beautiful and his girly followers are feeling their oats. Okay, so let me explain for my friends up North how this should work.
You don’t face down teams of police on your doorstep. Ever. When they arrive, your guns will be gone. You warmly invite them into your house, and say, “Come on in, I’m honored to have heroes of the community in my humble house. God bless you for your sacrifice.”
You take them to your gun safe, and there they find the sacrificial gun, that cheap $400 revolver you don’t want, and not much more (a few scattered cartridges, some papers, some scattered odds and ends). They walk out of the house thinking, “Hey, I’m glad that went so easy and that it’s over with.”
But it’s not over with. Know who your local police are. Make sure to let them know in no uncertain terms, without them knowing who you are, that it is all just beginning. Make your points in the shadows, not in the light of day. Make it clear to them that you will not tolerate infringements on your God-given rights.
If you don’t know the cops who did it because they are cowards and wore masks, note that their police colleagues supported them and let them do it. They are all culpable now. Make your points to all your known community police. In the shadows.
Make your points until the police no longer want to wage war on otherwise peaceable citizens. Make your points in the shadows.
That’s how this should go down. Do you understand?
