RCMP Attack on Ruger 10/22 Owners Unites Gun-Rights Groups
24 Jul 2016
The RCMP’s attack on owners of the popular Ruger 10/22 small-calibre rifle is prompting Canadian gun-rights groups to unite in opposition.
The RCMP plans to reclassify 10/22 magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of the .22 LR cartridge as “prohibited devices,” Calibre Magazine said July 18, potentially leading to criminal charges for anyone who owns, transports or sells them. Firearms-rights associations said the move isn’t allowed under Canadian laws and regulations.
“Canada’s national police force has chosen to continue its unabated attack on our nation’s law-abiding firearms community,” the Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA) said July 22 on its website. “We are currently examining several options with our sister organizations and members of the industry, and we will need your participation.”
