It is easy to forget our freedoms. Canada sounds a lot worse than here

In Canada like England they are totally paranoid about handguns. They can own handguns made prior to 1899 that are on the approved list. To own a modern handgun is a pure night mare. The laws on a .22 target pistol are similar to out Machine gun ownership laws.

Default Handguns in Canada

Avtually, while it is very restrictive in Canada, I wouldn't describe it as a nightmare, if one is a pistol target shooter for example.

i own a Glock 45 GAP, CZ Shadow 9mm and Smith and Wesson model 41, .22 that I shoot at a local gun club. My "ATT" - authorization to transport, permit, allows me to transport any handgun to a shooting range / club, in Canada and back home, and is valid for several years. It does not allow me to use it for carry or self defense purposes.

When you say they can own handguns made prior to 1899, are you referring to England? That is not the case in Canada.

I would love to be able to carry my 45 GAP when hunting but if I were to do that, it would be against the law here.

See, NY isnt so bad afterall! Its still complete BS to fetter an unfetterable Right at the state or federal level in the USA. Thats why we have a Constitution, if they dont like it, they should change it, thats not real easy but it could be done if they really wanted to follow the laws instead of making them up. I dont care that much if other countries dont allow their citizens to self defend, I wont go to places that my rights arent protected fully. I do care about my rights here and we will get them back the next election (or sooner).

Agreed! I think that the individual states should have MORE rights in how things are run within its borders.

Fellow Kentuckian, proud to live in such a pro-gun state also.
