    Is the joke so obvious that it's not worth making?

    ...Somebody's gotta wear some pants up there!

    No offense to any present company of course. I'd say the same thing if it were in Hollywood or MA.

    I believe there's a difference between wearing and filling.

    In full seriousness: commoners' lives are worth nothing in socialist paradises, so commoners have no legal right to defend themselves.

    Yea we're pretty surprised, and for once it's a good surprise! Not only is she NDP - socialists, she was also interviewed on CBC - state socialist radio, and it ran nationally. CBC is usually so anti-gun pro-liberal you can taste it, I believe that the interview will be online tomorrow, so I'll try and download it.

    Surprising... You bet.

    This isn't entirely true is it?

    VZ-58S are available for sale in Canada... And certain licensed collectors can own machineguns etc.

    I don't think you can even hunt with a handgun in Canada, much less use one for self defense.

    Does anyone have a way to change real-media to a different type of file? Her interview is here, I'm told:

    http://www.cbc.ca/clips/rm-audio/bc-guns-061218.rm

    About banned firearms, it seems that if it ever appeared in a movie it was added to the list. Seriously. And things based off things that are banned are also banned - eg Dragunov is banned because it's based on the AK action:banghead: !

    Luckily Service Rifle competitors fought hard and we kept AR15.

    There are different forms of Authorization to Transport (ATT). Most common for civilians is for carry in nature of handguns, for trapping or prospecting. Ironically, most admit that carrying a handgun for predator defence is likely a placebo. A shotgun could be carried without the ATT, but unloaded.

    Armoured truck drivers and others who work with money can get ATT's, but you have to wear a uniform - just so jewelry store owners don't try and arm themselves.

    People with a 'legitimate' fear for their safety can apply too, but the general policy seems to be that if you're not dead by the time they reply to you you don't need it.

    The general crime levels, by current bureaucratic interpretation, cannot be used to justify fear - it must be from an identifiable party.

    As for using them in self-defence, we've got a right to defend ourselves from grievous bodily harm with the level of force necessary. You can use a firearm or a knife or a log, it doesn't matter. Your collection might be rummaged through afterwards though, because if you have a firearm accessible in a crisis the odds are that you're not following the safe-storage laws - which are designed to prevent just that.

    You can use a handgun for self defense in Canada, as long the person attacking you is really hell bent on killing you and in your own home.

    There is a post on the forums here that links to a website in Canada that describes this.

    You mean you can get a permit to carry to defend yourself from bears but not from people?

    Yep... but we used to carry a 870 in the bush... I saw a S&W revolver before when I had to pick up a truck from the Ministry of Environment... the guy I picked the truck up from said he preferred a 12 gauge in the bush. At least we were thinking on the same level there...
