Firearms Previously Targeted by the Government

Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino has announced new amendments to Bill C-21 to create a definition by which new firearms will be banned. While this definition would not apply to firearms presently in the Canadian market, the Minister also announced that he will appoint a Firearms Advisory Committee that will determine future bans of firearms that are presently owned by law abiding Canadian gun owners. It is expected that between these measures, most of the firearms previously targeted by Liberal amendments late last year, including hunting rifles, will once again be target for future bans. The Liberals have moved to limit debate on Bill C-21 at committee in an attempt to pass the bill before the break week at the end of May. For reference, following is a list of the firearms previously targeted by this NDP-Liberal government.
