    You could carry your handguns 24/7 IF you had a carrying permit. They were not hard to get IF you either knew someone or had a squeeky clean record and a logical reason to need one. Since they could be handed out by any small town police force (and were good anywhere in Canada) a lot of people who "had a friend" got them with no problems. In Toronto they were a little more strict, with an investigation that would be banned today because of "privacy issues".
    In most of the province if you were a doctor, druggist, cab driver, tow truck driver, had money, a job that took you to dark places etc, and no criminal record then you could get one for personal defence reasons. The law also allowed you to keep a handgun at your "place of business" for the same reason.

    You could but then it would have to be inspected annually by the OPP and you'd have to have adequate insurance...good luck as it is no as easy as one would think...as an ex president and executive director of a handgun club for many years teh red tape is mind bogging.

    Thats what I thought my Dad had to carry one in the Bank. The bank got rid of them around 1971.

    Ditto with my wife. Back then a lot of people got paid in cash, delivered by bank employees who were required to be armed under the Bank Act. Stores could also call up and ask for cash delivered or to be picked up (before all banks had after hours drop boxes). My wife worked on the Danforth and would take cash to stores, then have her lunch before returning to the branch, carrying an old 38 Webley in her purse. She was 19 at the time. I couldn't even join a pistol club until I was 21.
    Later on she moved to a small branch on York Mills (4 employees) Her manager had them all fire a few shots in the basement as "training". That branch had two guns, one had to stay in the branch while the other went on deliveries...

    Every morning bank couriers would leave the downtown head office of the various banks carrying negotiable bonds etc in a large clear vinyl envelope. They would then hop on the TTC. You would often see a revolver thru the vinyl as well.

    That is why they are restricted, there is no restriction on the use of Non restricted firearms. (I know there are lots of restrictiong on shooting firearms but where you can leagally shoot a fire arm you can shoot any non restricted. Not true for restricted)

    If delivering money floats your boat, most CIT company will still give you a gun. Be prepared to be BORED at work tho.

    Well, some people, even back then were thinking, "don't say it can't happen here because it has happened here."

    There were too many people poopooing losses of rights. Saying the same things then that they do now. Things have slipped down the slope quite a bit, I would say.

    Well, this is a democracy (kinda). And, really, your only right in a democracy is to periodically cast your opinion on whom should get to enslave you.
