Re: Gun Laws for Canada

You can try to rationalize having a gun all you want, the fact is guns kill.

Yes. That's why all three are highly regulated in Canada.

Re: Gun Laws for Canada

We entered Canada( BC ) in a US flagged vessel with the same shotgun 18" barrel version & did it all over the phone& the officer was a delight. No inspection was done. this was in 2000- However the shotgun was registered to my girlfriend as she is a US citizen. I was on an NZ passport & didnt want a ballache.
Took a mixture of solids & 000 buckshot. Don't particularly like being unprotected where creatures regard you as food. Never needed it but much nicer feeling walking in the forests without worry.
Gun threads are as oil threads, like disturbing a wasp nest

Maimed, shot, stabbed or liberated of all your possessions and family members, now that's what makes a great trip if it's all on tape to load onto YOUTUBE.

Quite good. Our rates of gun violence and vehicle deaths are significantly better than the USA.

Canada’s traffic mortality rate is 6/100,000 vs the USA’s 10.6/100,000.

Gun deaths; Canada: 2/100,000 vs USA: 12/100,000

Not sure about saturated fat data.

Yeah… that’s the kind of thing that is common in Newfoundland .

Re: Gun Laws for Canada

Hello,
I believe you must take your gun to US Customs with proof you own it. They will issue you a receipt.
I also believe the only purpose is for hunting.
This will remove any problems when you return. I registered one once, but I dont remember the form numbers.
Good luck

Re: Gun Laws for Canada

Hello,
I believe Bear Spray is the best choice. Very effective.
Here in Pa. a neighbor killed a bear because it was eating her chickens. She was arrested.
Good luck
