Firearms. Guns. The words by themselves are laden with baggage and narratives, and they have played a part in election campaigns and Canadian politics in a serious role since 1991. The topic remains a hot button one throughout the entire spectrum of political landscape of Canada. The big problem is that very few people in Canada outside of the firearms community actually know much about firearms laws and the procedures and limitations they entail. It’s similar to how citizens may be unfamiliar with family law or corporate law; if you don’t interact with it, odds are, you’re not going to spend hours learning about it. So, with that in mind, this post should shed some light on things.
