House Committee passes recommendations for further “studies” by the Minister of Public Safety targeting firearms business owners

June 14, 2018/At today's SECU Committee meeting, two motions were passed that include additional recommendations to the Government in connection to Bill C-71. These recommendations are not part of the Bill, but are related to the development of regulations and the implementation of the Bill. While the recommendations touched on several areas, three are specifically likely to impact firearms business owners.

Scrutiny of large and unusual firearms transactions
That, as raised by the Toronto police and other stakeholders, the Government study mechanisms to identify large and unusual firearms transactions, especially those involving restricted and prohibited guns, to better identify illicit straw purchasing schemes, gang activity, or trafficking operations; and

Scrutiny of after-hours commercial storage
That, at the suggestion of the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians and other stakeholders, the Government of Canada examine the effectiveness and appropriateness of current individual firearms storage regulations as well as after-hours commercial storage regulations.

Restrictions on advertising
That, at the suggestion of PolySeSouvient, the Government of Canada examine whether it is reasonable for commercial firearms manufacturers to promote the sales of their wares, namely restricted and prohibited weapons, in a manner that particularly glorifies violence and simulates warfare.

If the Government accepts these recommendations, business owners should expect increased scrutiny/inspections in these areas as the Minister's staff and Law Enforcement conduct their research. The Minister will be asked to deliver the research back to the Government and they will want evidence to back up additional regulations. Business owners should be vigilant in their compliance to current regulations in these areas.

Many of you are already experiencing something similar to this: the CSAAA believes the increased tracing requests from the R.C.M.P. are an ongoing study to justify a new marking regulation expected to be added to Bill C-71 as a technical amendment.

Question for dealers: have any of you received requests from the CFO/RCMP for firearms and or parts traces lately

This could be a bit of a cause for concern. Especially after I found the UK specs online a while back...

SO I wonder how well this will go with motion pictures and TV? Lemme guess, they will be exempt, afterall action movies are HUGE money but they never suggest or promote violent behaviour.

In the last 50 years can these learned clowns provide just 1 single advertisment where a prohibited firearm is being even shown? Only an idiot would waste advertising dollars on promoting anything that no-one can have. I don't watch TV so don't know, but has anyone ever seen an ad where a gun maker is doing the sort of ad that these assclowns are trying to ban?

I think the doctors should get their own house in order. Plenty of drugs are appropriated from doctors offices and hospitals.
If the cops and military can't keep their guns safe in centralized storage, I can only imagine what sort of storage facility these idiots are dreaming up.

Not even that grandiose. Think of all the “is it a safe”, “is this legal storage” threads. In theory, further clarification would be good, but likely this is just more onerous and confusing layers piled on. Especially for individuals, likely some for businesses as well. But individuals are the low hanging fruit. Yearly storage inspection checks regardless of business, collector, 12(X), etc; held to “best practices”. Some or all of the requirements of the UK individual storage requirements.

Those things could cause many to give up firearm ownership right then and there...

While we all know the agenda behind this, I do cringe whenever a gun store is knocked over easily. Lequille here in NS had a whole whack of handguns stolen (something like two dozen) a few years back and all the thief had to do besides break into the store (it is a "country store", part hardware, part groceries and yes, handguns) and cut a cable.

That's of course the idea right there. Anti gunners know that just banning guns wouldn't fly so they just keep making them harder and harder to aquire legally, since every new hoop to jump through will make it more likely that someone will just give up before they even start.

...and just buy what they want off the street from the illegal factories that are starting to show up here.

Guaranteed way to make an anti-gunners head explode ...... When they talk about prohibiting all guns, ask them how well that has worked on getting drugs off the street.
