    Donít take this as me agreeing with it. Iím just not that optimistic about black guns being left alone in Canada.
    Military has absolutely zero to do with this farce. Consider that the 303 Brit is still used in Canada's North by some rangers. All firearms for the most part were designed with an original intent of military use. You have to say "scary" !

    Personally I think we should start a movement Called "black guns matter"

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    I unfortunately had a boating accident on my way to "turn in" my ridiculous "assault riffle ban" bull . Also this is not legislation since it was an OIC that it didn't go thru the proper channels that if government changed in a month they could throw this ridiculous claim out the door and be done with it. So far unless they have secretly added anything to the list it hasn't affected me but I only have my PAL so I could just as easy sell them all tomorrow and never have to worry about anything lol

    I may as well sell my banned .22 semi, because I can’t hunt with it or use it as a training gun, and there is not much point in keeping it as a dust collector in my gun cabinet.

    I don't own any of the banned guns but if I did and had to turn it in I think I might weld the chamber and muzzle shut. If I can't use it no one else will.
    It's not the mountain ahead that wears you out, it's the grain of sand in yer shoe.

    .....and you are entitled to that opinion.

    I think some owners will keep them and continue to use them in private.

    They key word would be "private." You'd at the very least jeopardize your membership taking one to a gun club and may risk being reported to the police.

    Being caught with it in the bush risks a criminal charge, fines/incarceration, loss of your license, seizure of all other firearms, job loss, restricted volunteer opportunities and being not permitted to enter other countries. Hardly seems worth the risk to pop off a few rounds with a Mini-14.

    Or you could take the government's money and buy something that doesn't bring the same potential consequences.
