    We still can, despite the best efforts of our now departed Liberal government, handgun sales are slowly raising, long guns sales are steady, rough guess is anywhere from 5-11 million handguns in the country legally (sort of) and approx. 22 million or so long guns.

    Growing up it seemed almost compulsory to have a .303 enfield and a .22cal rifle. :)

    The last government tried to get reelected on a platform that had banning of all handguns in Canada as one of their main promises to reduce crime, it flew like a lead balloon, the new government is gun friendly (Canadian style) and is in the process of dismantling our long gun registry which cost anywhere from 2-3 billion over 10 years (this dismantling was an election issue that did fly) We aren’t out of the woods yet as the new government is a minority, but no one want a election for awhile and they have time to clean up the mess and prove themselves.

    We Northern gun nuts have learned our lesson that remaining quiet is a death sentence and we are learning from our Southern brothers how to rock the boat.
