TheGunBlog.ca — Canada’s Library of Parliament published a summary of Bill C-71, the government’s planned law against hunters, farmers and sport shooters, in December.
It provides a different analysis than The Bill C-71 Book, which you can buy from our Bill C-71 page.
- Overview of legal framework, timing and technicalities of the bill, without giving the political or practical significance.
- Shows how Bill C-71 requires the federal police to maintain a registry of who transfers “Non-restricted” firearms to whom, creating what we called a “connections registry,” or network map of gun owners who transact together. (Section 2.1.3)
- Recap of the legal battle around the contradictions and misinformation from the Ministry of Public Safety and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on the “Long-Gun Registry.” The RCMP said it had deleted the database linking every Canadian owner of a shotgun or rifle to their firearms. Bill C-71 requires the RCMP to give the registry to Quebec. (Section 2.2)
