Government of Canada's Firearms Prohibition:

 

Click here to visit the RCMP website and find out what you need to know about the Government of Canada's new prohibition of certain firearms and devices.

 

Due to the Government of Canada’s new prohibition of certain firearms and devices on 2020-May-01, Calgary Shooting Centre Ltd. will no longer be selling any products that were recently added to the new prohibited firearms and devices list.

Calgary Shooting Centre Ltd. will not be accepting any returns for products that have been reclassified as prohibited.  Firearms that have not yet been transferred into the customers firearm inventory, do qualify for a return/refund.

 

Regarding what has been reclassified as prohibited.

“The Regulations prescribe the firearms set out below as “prohibited firearms” and also specifically prescribe the known variants of the principal models: M16, AR-10, and AR-15 rifles and M4 carbine; Ruger Mini-14 rifle; US Rifle M14; Vz58 rifle; Robinson Armament XCR rifle; CZ Scorpion EVO 3 carbines and pistols; Beretta Cx4 Storm carbine; SIG Sauer SIG MCX and SIG Sauer SIG MPX carbine and pistol; and Swiss Arms Classic Green and Four Seasons series (as specified in former Bill C-71: An Act to amend certain Acts and Regulations in relation to firearms)." (Source: Canada Gazette, Part II: Volume 154)

"The regulations also prescribe the upper receivers of M16, AR-10, AR-15 and M4 pattern firearms to be prohibited devices.” (Source: Canada Gazette, Part II: Volume 154)

 

Regarding the Amnesty Order and transportation.

“The Amnesty Order has been made to protect affected individuals who (1) were in legal possession of a newly prohibited firearm or prohibited device at the time the Regulations came into force, and, (2) continue to hold a valid licence during the amnesty period, from criminal liability for unlawful possession of a prohibited firearm in order to afford the individuals with time to dispose of the firearms. Disposal can include: having the firearm deactivated by an approved business; delivering the firearm or device to a police officer; legally exporting the firearm; and, if a business, returning the firearm or device to the manufacturer. Other permitted activities during the amnesty period are to transport the firearm for any of the above purposes and to use the newly prohibited firearm, if previously non-restricted, to hunt for the purposes of sustenance or to exercise a right recognized and affirmed by section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 (the Constitution). Individuals are no longer allowed to import the firearms listed in the Regulations. Affected owners will no longer be permitted to sell to individuals within Canada or use the prohibited firearms, and no transportation will be permitted except for the purposes described above. The firearms will have to be kept securely stored in accordance with the legal storage requirements for the classification of the specified firearms prior to their prohibition.

Individuals may transport the firearms one time to return home with the firearm if it was not at the owner’s residence at the time the prohibition came into force, or, if not the owner and in possession of the firearm on the day the prohibition came into force, return the firearm to its owner.

The amnesty period begins on the date of coming into force of the Amnesty Order and expires on April 30, 2022. Upon the expiration of the Amnesty Order, individuals who are in possession of a prohibited firearm or prohibited device could be prosecuted for unlawful possession.

The Government intends to implement a buy-back program, which would allow affected owners to declare their intent to deliver their firearms to a police officer. The buy-back would compensate affected owners for the value of their firearms after they are delivered to a police officer. An option to participate in a grandfathering regime would also be made available for affected owners.

While an individual may dispose of a firearm by deactivating it, legally exporting it or delivering it to a police officer prior to the implementation of the buy-back program, compensation will not be available until the buy-back program is in effect. An individual should not deliver a firearm to a police station without first making arrangements with a police officer for a safe and scheduled delivery or pick up.” (Source: Canada Gazette, Part II: Volume 154)

 

More information on the reclassification of firearms can be found in the Canada Gazette, Part II: Volume 154

 

We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to immediately scrap his government’s May 1, 2020, Order in Council decision related to confiscating legally owned firearms and instead pass legislation that will target criminals, stop the smuggling of firearms into Canada, go after those who illegally acquire firearms, and apologize to legal firearms owners in Canada.

Advanced Technology

  • Modern backstop design eliminates lead dust and ricochets, and allows the use of steel jacketed or steel cored ammunition.
