After years of frustration, we finally won a round today. We will no longer have to register our rifles and shotguns with the RCMP, unless you live in the province of Quebec.
After passing through months of debates through Parliament and our Senate, Bill C19 finally received Royal assent and passed into law today.
The fly in the ointment is the province of Quebec. They today received an injunction delaying the promised destruction of all the data of all the firearms registered there until court hearings can be held over the next few weeks. They want the data transferred from the federal database to them so they can start up their own registry.
