    Statistics Canada. CanSim Table 35-10-0177-01 Incident-based crime statistics, by detailed violations, Canada, provinces, territories and Census Metropolitan Areas
    if you go to "Total, all violations" -> "Total other Federal Statutes" -> "Firearms Act"
    you'll see that a little over 1000 incidents a year under the Firearms Act, with about 80 a year cleared by charge.

    SO how would that work, when there is a trigger lock on it :P Cabelas here & CT won't remove the trigger locks.

    "...over 1000 incidents a year under the Firearms Act..." Charges are laid under the Criminal Code, not the FA. The SC of C has refused to hear cases about the FA's Charter violations(13 of 'em last time I counted). Supposedly because they claim it'd be the entire CC of C that'd be declared unconstitutional and therefore invalid.

    I don't know if this applies to all national parks but:
    (3) No person shall

    (a) have a loaded firearm in or on a vehicle, vessel or aircraft; or

    (b) discharge a firearm from a vehicle, vessel or aircraft.

    I do recall reading on a forum where a hunter leaned his loaded rifle up against his truck when the CO approached and he got charged with having a loaded firearm ON a vehicle.

    Not sure about up here but in Arizona its legal to shoot from a vehicle on the range as long as the motor/drivetrain has been removed and its just a rolling chassis
