The Liberal Gun Ban
of 2020

May 1, 2020 the Trudeau government by Order-In-Council (OIC) prohibited over 1,500 types of firearms!
The OIC including the complete list is here.

Regulatory Impact Analsys Statement:
The Order Declaring an Amnesty Period (2020) (the Amnesty Order) accompanies the Regulations to protect individuals, who were in lawful possession of one or more of the newly prohibited firearms or prohibited devices on the day the Regulations came into force, from criminal liability for unlawful possession for the purpose of allowing individuals to come into compliance with the law.

During the amnesty period, the Government intends to implement a buy-back program to compensate affected owners for the value of their firearms after they are delivered to a police officer; however, until a buy-back program is offered, affected owners will not be eligible for compensation. An option to participate in a grandfathering regime would also be made available for affected owners. Further public communications on the buy-back program and the grandfathering regime will follow later.

The Regulations and the Amnesty Order come into force on the day they are made. The Amnesty Order expires on April 30, 2022.

Liberals Plan to ban & confiscate guns - 2019
  • 13 Dec 2019 PM Justin Trudeau has given Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Bill Blair his Mandate Letter:
With support from the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, implement our firearms policy commitments, including to:
  • Amend Canada’s firearms laws to ban all military-style assault rifles, with an associated buyback program and two-year amnesty;
  • Work with provinces and territories to give municipalities the ability to further restrict or ban handguns;
  • Update firearms licence requirements for ammunition imports, strengthen safe-storage laws, develop a mechanism for suspending licences for those who pose a danger to themselves or others, continue to build a national system that allows for the flagging of bulk purchases of firearms, impose stronger penalties for gun smuggling, provide the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) with additional resources to detect and stop gun smuggling, and work to limit by regulation the glorification of violence in firearms marketing and sales; and
  • Continue to protect the rights of hunters and farmers. There will not be a return of the long-gun registry.

What You Can Do

  • If your registration certificate(s) for any of your firearms are revoked. Know Your Rights!
  • Write letters to Prime Minister Trudeau, Minister Blair and your MP. Let them know you oppose the confiscation of firearms from legal licensed owners. Letters addressed to MP's do not require a postage stamp.  Here is a sample letter that you can use as a guide. Also see this post by Tracey Wilson at the CCFR.
