    Default Open Carry in the Bush

    Here's an organization that is trying to get the laws changed so we can open carry in the bush.

    Anyone that spends a lot of time in the woods should be able to have a handgun. Trappers can apply but it is my understanding that the CFO in Ontario issues very very few. Depends on how the next election goes. Harper may have the will to enact this...

    Hey HA

    No thanks, I'm against it, for a few reasons, first of all, I don't like handguns, if you need protection in the Ontario bush, carry a rifle or a shotgun. Truthfully there is very little you need to worry about in Ontario and Quebec. I've watched may times when bear baiters went to their barrels with only a stick or an axe.
    Handguns end up in the wrong peoples hands and are used by gangbangers as some sort of status symbol and the more there are around, the more they get.
    We have a huge issue right now in Ottawa with handguns and it would be worse if more people had them.

    This is just my opinion, but IMHO, hunters don't need anything to do with handguns

    Ig

    By the way, they make a very short 30.30 rifle called a Trapper model and it is exactly for that, trappers

    I always thought a trapper or bear guide could carry a pistol. Personally I never saw a need to though.

    I also disagree with Iggy!! Canada has strict handgun laws pertaining to who can carry.

    So just because you don't like them you think its good to impose upon those that do? I'm not much for city folk but you dont see me pushing for them to have to stay locked up in the cities! Come to think of it.....
    Since when has Ottawa had a big handgun issue? Im in and around the city all the time and aside for the police I dont see any handguns. Dont see gangbangers running around waving guns in peoples faces. Besides how does people carrying handguns in the bush have anything to do with the ammount of guns in the city? Do you have any idea how many RPAL holders there are? Do you have any idea how easy it is to go to Detroit and pick up whatever you want?


    If someone wants an illegal gun they will get them. Period.
    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    How does that saying go..."Guns dont kill people...people kill people" Shotgun, rifle, hangun....hell knives they can all kill you if you are a moron!!...its alot easier for a knife or a rifle to fall into the worng hands then most handguns as they are alot harder to acquire and posess. People that are authorized to own handguns do/should know how to properly store and carry one therefore I am all for it....a gun is a gun why should it matter the size of it heading into the bush.
