    The Simplified Classification System passed in the Policy Convention.

    Conservative Party of Canada POLICY DECLARATION
    May 28th, 2016

    99. Firearms
    A Conservative Government is committed to cost-effective gun control programs designed to keep
    guns out of the hands of criminals while respecting the rights of law-abiding Canadians to own
    and use firearms responsibly.
    Measures will include: mandatory minimum sentences for the criminal use of firearms; strict
    monitoring of high-risk individuals; increased enforcement and prosecution of smuggling; safe
    storage provisions; firearms safety training; a certification screening system for all those wishing
    to acquire firearms legally; and putting more law enforcement officers on our streets.
    We recognize the legitimacy of private ownership of firearms and will resist any domestic or
    international pressure to the contrary.
    A Conservative Government will not deprive Canadian Citizens of legally owned firearms.
    A Conservative Government recognizes that civilian firearms ownership is a Canadian Heritage.
    A Conservative Government would streamline Firearms classification by adopting the Simplified
    Classification System.

    A Conservative government would order a review of firearms related laws to identify parts of those
    Acts that have no public safety value.

    One year ago I wrote the four policy statements for the CPC convention, which passed at 99.99%.

    Any changes will follow those four statements.

    Policy statements:

    1-- A Conservative Government will not deprive Canadian Citizens of their legally acquired firearms.
    2-- A Conservative Government recognizes that civilian firearms ownership is a Canadian Heritage.
    3-- A Conservative Government would streamline Firearms classification by adopting the Simplified Classification System.
    4 - A Conservative government would order a review of firearms related laws to identify parts of those Acts that have no public safety value.




    As I recall the CSSA's Simplified Classification System is
    • A prohibited firearm is
      (a) an automatic firearm,
      (b) a firearm that is adapted from a rifle or shotgun, whether by sawing, cutting or any other alteration, and that, as so adapted, is less than 660 mm in length,
    • A restricted firearm is
      (a) a firearm that is not a prohibited firearm,
      (b) a handgun
      (c) a firearm that is designed or adapted to be fired when reduced to a length of less than 660 mm by folding, telescoping or otherwise.
    • A non-restricted firearm is
      a firearm that is not a prohibited or restricted firearm.

    Whereas the pamphlet that Richard Wakefield handed around to all the delegates at the policy convention said it was
    • A prohibited firearm is
      (a) an automatic firearm,
      (b) a firearm that is adapted from a rifle or shotgun, whether by sawing, cutting or any other alteration, and that, as so adapted, is less than 660 mm in length,
    • A restricted firearm is
      (a) a firearm that is not a prohibited firearm,
      (b) a handgun
      (c) a firearm that is designed or adapted to be fired when reduced to a length of less than 660 mm by folding, telescoping or otherwise.
    • A non-restricted firearm is
      a firearm that is not a prohibited or restricted firearm.
    • A historical firearm is
      a firearm that was made before 1946
