    There are so many places you can hide guns when crossing the border it is impossible to completely stop this kind of thing - especially in 18 wheelers, RVs or boats

    Precisely, so what is the point of throwing up so many barriers to the legal trade in firearms. The only ones that really get inconvenience are the law abiding citizenry. Suppressing the legal market in firearms only serve to expand the unregulated and illegal trafficking of guns, and pad the pockets of gangs and organized crime.

    There's a lot of places to stash firearms, drugs and whatnot in campers, semis and SUV's but I guarantee customs knows or has seen where everyone of them is. It just boils down to the logistics of checking what vehicles.

    $1000 each??? Try at least double if not more on the street.

    A box of 50 rounds of pistol ammo will get $500 on the street.

    I’ve heard that street firearm trafficking can be much more profitable then my example illustrated. But my point was, why continue to feed that system of profitability, by throwing up so many barriers to the legal trade in firearms. It really makes no sense and seems to promote very little public safety when it appears they are only able to catch and convict so few. .

    The gun issue with our government is simple, they don't want to attack their voter base.
    Freeloaders and criminals generate a huge amount of votes for the liberals. If your not aware, I believe our liberal government not so long ago just reduced sentences for gun crimes. If I'm not mistaken it was announced just days after announcing more gun control for licensed owners .
    Trudeau and the rest of his don't give a sh#t about licenced owners or their vote, as most don't ever vote liberal. So they could care less how difficult they make for licensed owners

    What PO's me to no end is that for every one that's caught,at least,10X that slip through.
    If you're too big to do the little things that count,you're too little to do the big things that really count.

    Boy what a difference from what you guys have to go through with regards to firearms - I can go over to Cabela's right now and buy a couple handguns and an AR type rifle and take them home - once you pick out the guns you want you go over to a area where there are computers set up - you fill out the forms on the screen and they get an ok from a check that is made on you - if you have no criminal record you are good to go with the guns - right now the biggest problem is getting ammo for certain caliber guns - so many people have bought guns that the ammo makers are having a tough time meeting the demand - the 9 mm handgun is real popular right now
