Canada's Confiscation Laws

It's 10 years this year since Canada's "C-68"...the Firearms Control Act...went into effect. There was a terrible uproar over it and everyone (gun person) in Canada was "up in arms", so to speak, but what ever became of it? What were the lasting results and where do they stand up there now? More to the point, what might we have to look forward to if we're unprepared??

Although I agree that this is a very real possibility that has already happened in England and Australia, the video is a scare tactic created by the very organization we're relying on to protect us. This video was produced by the NRA, and includes a shameless plug for donations at the very end.

Scare Tactic by NRA?

Although I agree that this is a very real possibility that has already happened in England and Australia, the video is a scare tactic created by the very organization we're relying on to protect us. This video was produced by the NRA, and includes a shameless plug for donations at the very end.

If this video is a scare tactic by the NRA, I hope they produce many more of them. This is not a joke. These people (the government) are dead serious about disarming our country and we are getting closer every day. England, Australia and Canada have gone under and we are just a few steps behind. When this happens here, I wonder what we will do as a nation? Meekly comply? Fight and, if so, how? I haven't quite figured out how I am going to do it but I will not hand over my weapons willingly. When guns are gone, will the government take up knives next? Baseball bats? Tire irons? Where will it all end? I hope the NRA has the ability to stop this incursion on our freedom and the 2d Amendment. That's why I pay my membership dues!:angry:

gun control has resulted in millions of deaths because people were unable to defend themselves from the crimminals in government. is this a scare tactic? yes but it is the truth. as far as the fund raising goes and no offence intended i put my money where my mouth is. if this scares people into giving money(including myself) to help those fighting to preserve our gun rights i say good. all it takes for evil to succed is for good men to do nothing. the nra has done something. keep op yhe good work.

Good I was not the only one who noticed this plug for the NRA. If anything the video taught you it was to keep your name off list that say you have a gun or rifle. By joining the NRA your name goes on their membership list. So the Government just needs to obtain that list and they now a lots of names to check against the nics data base to see which of them show up the ones that don't will under go further investigation to see if they have gone to any gun shows.

while I hope that those are just thoughts in my head that won't come true. I am not willing to take that chance.

if you have bought a gun from a store anytime during the last 40 years your name is already on a list. since this a a concealed weapon site you probably have a concealed weapon permit or open carry permit from your state which means your name is on that list also. in many places you apply to a local law enforcement agency for your permit. thats another list you are on. your local leo can look up these and more. so if my name is on a list of people who support the right to keep and bear arms so be it. i would rather die on my feet than live in terror as a slave. i am not trying to be offensive to anybody but if you think that by not joining any gun rights group your flying under the radar you may be wrong

I agree with you on this. The NRA is not perfect, but it has more going for us than some would give it credit for, that is why I am a member. It takes money to win court proceedings and money to keep the anti gunners at bay, like it or not that is the way it goes. Once we go down the slippery slope of banning guns, it will never stop.:fie:

I am an NRA member but that does not mean I own a single weapon, just support 2nd amendment, I may have a concealed handgun permit but that does not mean I own a weapon, even if I purchased a weapon, I may not own it now. Screw the list, I did swear to protect the constitution against all enemy foreign and DOMESTIC (Military). Peace and Love.

Membership or not, bought a gun or didn't, online gun guy or not...if you think the Government doesn't have all the information they need on you if they wanted to rattle your cage, you're mistaken. You just have to get out of line enough that it becomes worth their while to pursue it.

As for the NRA, you can say or think what you want about them. I have my issues with them, too, but I'm still a Life Member. Just consider this: If it weren't for the NRA and the mission they've been on since LONG before some of these other groups came along . . . and I'm a Life Member of the GOA and the CCRKBA as well . . . we'd all be hunting with pointy sticks and Concealed Carry for Personal Protection would be a fantasy!

Give credit where credit is due, and support them that have supported YOU, probably since long before it became important to you.

Support thr NRA

The ONLY way we will prevent laws that limit our 2nd amendment rights is to assure lawmakers that if those laws are passed, they will be voted out of office. No single organization has the political skills of the NRA. Yes, they are less-than-perfect, but over the years the NRA has done its job. I STRONGLY support the NRA.

Well my opinion of the NRA or another club that puts out videos like this or always use scare tactics to get you to send them money is just like our elected officials in office money hungry whores who will do what ever it is that will bring them the most money. To me the NRA is more concerned with collecting money from members then defending the 2nd amendment. For if they prevail and we no longer have to worry about our 2nd amendment being taken away then they are out of a job. I don't know of too many people willing to lose their job if they have a way of keeping it. The amount of prisons that the USA has is a shame. Due to them not putting an end to the problem but accepting the money the problem creates. The best example is Speeding laws. The states could solve this problem but they would have to be willing to loss all the money they make from issuing speeding tickets and to date none of them are willing to lose the funds they receive from speeding tickets.

I belong to the NRA and Grassroots. That doesn't mean that I like everything about the NRA, it just means it's better than nothing. Over the years they have done a lot. Also their hated in Washington, I like that.

Kasper: Just for curosity's sake, are you a member of the NRA? From the tone of your comments, I would assume that you are not. The NRA does not always do or say things that I may be in complete agreement with but at least it does stand up for gun owners rights under the 2d Amendment. This is an ongoing battle with the government and I don't think NRA workers will ever become unnecessary and/or work themselves out of a job. If the organization ever folds, we will be in deep kimchee because no other organization has the power or does what NRA does. It takes money to run an organization like that and I am willing to do what I can to support it. It is worth it to me to be able to keep my guns. I can shoot a hell of a lot farther with a gun than I can throw a rock to protect myself and family! Your analogy with speeding laws went right over my head but I'll try to figure that one out later. Anyway, all this being said, I will continue to support the NRA and will encourage others to do so. Strength in numbers!:biggrin:

The NRA has made similar videos about England and Australia. I would like to see them make videos about Jamaica, Ireland, New Zealand, and South Africa as well.

Then let me repeat it but use gun laws instead. How does the NRA get politicians to go along with their objection to a new bill that will harm the 2nd amendment. They pay them with part of the money members send them. So as I see it the NRA is not fighting to maintain our 2nd amendment rights but fighting to keep them where they are at so they can stay in business. For we all agree that none of us should have to pay for a license to carry an arm for protection but most of us do to remain law abiding citizens. I did join the NRA but never rejoined after they decided that they were going to compromise on our 2nd amendment rights. As the NRA decided that we would be better off with only part of our 2nd amendment rights then none at all. After that I knew that the NRA did not comprehend what the 2nd amendment was saying when it says shall not be infringed. So just like fining people $25,000 for speeding and making it to expensive for most of us to chance speeding the government keeps it under $300 so that more of us will take the chance due to it not being too expensive to pay off the ticket if caught speeding. The same can be said for the NRA position of compromising on the 2nd amendment by compromising the NRA is leaving room for the government to take away some of our rights. So now like our elected leaders they have been in Washington DC to long and have gotten use to being paid for their services / votes.

Are you suggesting that our politicians are accepting bribes / payoffs? Do you have proof? If you do, I'd like to see it.

Proof no, but all the S*$t that happened on wall street and the amount of people sent to jail for breaking laws does not add up in my book. But having politicians on corporate payrolls does not seem like a problem to most of the Americans. Laws passed now are in the favor of who is paying the elected officials the most money and will give them a job when they get voted out of office. The money they get from tax payers is just not enough for them to keep their thoughts on representing the people who voted them into office. Most companies now have more rights then American citizens. Black water is one that has now changed its name but has more rights then any of us. Black water had full auto weapons that most of us are not allowed to buy or own.
