    It's absolutely stupid that Canada has an automatic fire arms ban law, I mean sure it might have helped with SOME crime but semi autos do as much damage as their auto counterparts
    Please leave your responses and opinions

    Yeah, tell me about it man... I live in California same thing If not worse. Weve gotta put a bullet button on the semi autos and can't have more than 10 rounds in the magazine.

    I moved from southern California to south Louisiana a couple of years ago. I was so happy to remove that ridiculous bullet button and buy some real magazines. So Cal has the market cornered for beautiful girls and wonderful weather. Because of stupid gun laws and out of control immigration I will never move back.

    That must be a big change!

    Canada is notorious for being anti-gun

    I work in the maritime industry so there is plenty to do in the Gulf of Mexico and the Inland Waterways. South Louisiana has it's own charm and the people definitely know how to have fun. I would still like to visit Canada some day. Regardless of their draconian gun laws.

    Canada isn't actually that bad. We don't need to have a bullet button or any other way of dropping a magazine except do the standard release. Only thing that you guys have on us is the fact you guys can buy a full-auto and a suppresser. That's the only real things that you've got on us.....also the fact you (in some states) don't have any magazine regulations. In Canada we can only have 5rounds for a semi-auto center fire.

    In case you are un-aware of it, we in the US also have a full auto ban as well, however with a $200.00 tax stamp, a 4 to 6 month wait, a set of finger prints, the OK from the local PD (Sherrif), an FBI background check and restricted travel, you can spend anywhere from $9,000 (USD) to $15,000 (USD) for a fully automatic weapon or just buy a semi-auto AR-15 with 30 round mags for around $650.00 (USD) and avoid all the hassle.

    We have high cap bans in my state still. I have a class A license for high cap but my clips have to have been in this state in 1994.

    5 rounds!?

    As a former resident of Canada, I really felt 'under the finger' of the government. And for a semi-auto shooter, having that 5-round limit is alot like telling a Harley Davison fan he is limited to a Schwinn 3-speed pedal bike! :rolleyes:

    I used to live in Commiefornia. Bullet buttons are required for AR-15's that are sold there. You have to insert a tool like an allen key, coat hanger wire or pen point into the center of an otherwise normal mag release button. Otherwise it won't work. It's supposed to slow the bad guys down with mag changes. They also limit gun owners to 10rd magazines. That North Hollywood shoot out scared the piss out of California law enforcement. I think that's where this all started. I could be wrong....

    Where is the American Press? When Canada passed this gun law President Clinton called it real progress. The American Press hailed this law as a leap forward in saving lives. Now millions of dollars later it is called a failure. I have not seen a word in the American Press calling it a failure. Clinton has not mentioned it.:D

    Sadly you can't carry a handgun anywhere except to/from a range, shop or gunsmith in Canada. While doing so t has to be in a locked box, have a trigger lock, unloaded, and you need proper papers and licensing to do so.

    But your right, some calibers are banned in Canada, I only know of the two that you listed.

    NH has a Shall issue CC permit, I think. Mine cost me $10 and fill out a form, then a 3 day wait. No restrictions on carry, (except for the govt. building & school thing), you can open carry, no mag limits, no bullet buttons, no banned calibers, no registration.

    Also, if you set up a trust for your silencers, full auto, act., you avoid the signature of LEO, and the photograph requirement. As a bonus, you can list other people on the trust, so you do not have to secure the stuff from your wife. And, if you die, I hear the trust would go directly to her, putting her in total control of it, and able to use it, or sell it as she wishes........
