It's not another gun registry
(it repeals mandatory destruction of the long gun registry data)(which we thought was deleted)
but a record of purchases, all sales of firearms from any shop and all shops,
that can be obtained with a warrant, but(so stated) records are not compulsory by shop owners,
for the purpose of confiscation from individual registered owners,
Parliament will consult with RCMP(RCMP overruled by parliament) for any records.
A lifetime background check is in place.
Registration of handguns are every five years, and have in place a already-licensed handgun owners, for transporting firearms without additional paperwork each time they wish to do so.
BILL C-71(http://www.cpac.ca/en)

2014 - When the long gun registry was abolished the crime rate dropped in the GTA by 85% since the rest of Canada dropped by 35%.
Legit Canadians are being scrutinized once again.
Criminals don't like it when their subjects are armed.

National Firearms Association
March 20, 2018
- The NFA to mount campaign against Liberal bill C-71
The National Firearms Association, Canada’s largest and most effective firearms rights organization, says it will fight the Liberals bill C-71 that would bring in a new firearms registry, unnecessarily prohibit several safe and widely used firearms, limit sales on firearms at gunshows and outdoor shows, unnecessarily increase background checks, transfer data from the defunct federal long-gun registry to the provinces to allow the creation of their own long-gun registries, and prohibit already-licensed owners from transporting firearms without additional paperwork each time they wish to do so, among other things.
“This bill is an all-out attack on firearms owners and users, and just like we led the charge against the failed long-gun registry and won – we will lead the charge again against this seriously misguided legislation,”
says Sheldon Clare, president of the NFA.
“And we anticipate the same result – firearms owners and users in Canada when motivated are a very strong political force, and this bill will certainly motivate them.”...

We are asking you to call the office of the Prime Minister and respectfully let him know you disagree with this decision and encourage him to change it.
The prime minister has the authority to overrule this nonsense.
Enough voices will make him do the right thing and reverse this decision.

YOU can send him a message by the following link:
Please leave a message that he needs to take action and make changes.

C-71 March 22 2018 - NFA Executive Summary and Analysis by Guy Lavergne
1. Transfers of non-restricted firearms...
2. Authorizations to transport restricted and prohibited (12(6) firearms...
3. Black Rifles Prohibition and Re-classification...
4. Firearms Prohibition orders...
5. Firearms businesses...
7. Amendment to s.5 of the Firearms Act (Issuance and renewal of licences),
a. Focus on the 5 year period preceding the application is removed.
i. In truth, CFOs were already looking at prior events in deciding whether to issue, renew, or revoke licences.
ii. Judges had validated that practice in deciding references under s. 74 of the Firearms Act.
iii. There is a likelihood that the “prescribed form” for applying for a licence or renewal may be modified to reflect the amendment.
Thus, an applicant for a new licence or licence renewal may have to declare all prior events, such as a depression that occurred 20 years before.
This could ultimately be grounds for a denial.

Hunting in Ontario - https://www.ohep.net
This information is brought to you by the Ontario Government's Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, an agency mandated with the responsibility for the sustainable management of Ontario's wealth of natural resources.
The purpose of this information is to ensure you understand the rules, regulations, and most importantly the practices required to safely hunt wild turkey in the province of Ontario.
You will also learn some basic hunting techniques that will help you get started on your way to being a successful wild turkey hunter.

Effective January 1, 2017, hunters are no longer required to complete a separate Wild Turkey Hunter Education Course to hunt wild turkey in Ontario.
Hunters who have already taken the Ontario hunter education course are not required to take any additional training in order to purchase a wild turkey hunting licence.
Information is provided here as a voluntary resource for all new and experienced turkey hunters.
For questions related to this information or turkey hunting safety in general, contact the Ontario Hunter Education Program

Measures in Ontario concerning overabundant species of geese in Wildlife Management Unit 65
Bag and Possession Limits in Ontario
Hunting and hunting equipment are allowed only on farmland.
Overabundant geese
4.7 Hunting is the most important source of mortality for adult geese. Because of this, population size can be managed to some extent by changing hunting regulations to increase harvest.
One of the reasons urban populations tend to grow quickly is because geese living in cities do not face as much hunting pressure as do their rural or migratory counterparts.
Hunting of geese has been restricted in recent years, with the closure of areas previously open to hunting and the introduction of municipal bylaws prohibiting the discharge of firearms in urban and suburban areas, and this has contributed significantly to population growth.
Canada Geese: frequently asked questions FAQ
Hunting at current levels is not enough to stop the population growth and hunting regulations have been liberalized to the extent possible within the limits permitted for hunting seasons under the Migratory Birds Convention Act (MBCA)
In many areas, Canada Goose populations have not reached the carrying capacity of the habitat and there is no biological reason to expect that these populations will stop growing in the short-term
In the United States, “resident” Canada Geese have been declared overabundant and as such are currently subject to special take by hunters outside of hunting seasons
At the present time the conservation status of Canada Geese is not threatened; populations in all regions are well above objectives; there is no conservation risk to providing permits to eligible people who need them to reduce damage and danger caused by Canada Geese on their property
EC-CWS monitoring programs will inform management agencies when and if a change in policy and approach is needed to maintain control efforts at the appropriate level in accordance with regional population objectives

Types of shot used in shotguns
Shotguns and waterfowl Determine the size of your target.
Larger shot penetrates more effectively, so it is generally used on larger animals.
Smaller shot is sufficient for smaller game.

Small game like birds and ground varmint can be taken with shot as small at #8. Alternatively, some hunters like to use larger shot because it can kill at slightly longer range and reduces the number of pellets you have to remove from your food.

Larger animals such as pheasants, turkeys, or rabbits should be taken with slightly larger shot such as #6 or #4.

The largest animals are suited for buckshot. Deer and coyotes should be shot with pellets no smaller than #4 buckshot or a rifle.
Slugs are generally only used for home defense, tactical uses, and large game hunting.
If you're hunting deer-sized game, coyote, possibly bear, etc., you're going to want to use slugs or a half descent centerfire rifle cartridge.

Don't shoot steel or other very hard shot through a full choke. You are likely to damage it.
If you don't know the range you will be using your shot shells, it is customary to pattern birdshot at 40 yards (36.6 m) and to pattern (defensive) buckshot at 20-25 yards (18.3-22.9 m).
Non-toxic (not lead) shot is often required when hunting ducks and other waterfowl.
Types of rifles used for game
Equipment used for hunting;
Rifles offer a few popular types and many hunters simply prefer their own taste.
Rifles used when hunting moose or bear might be a 7mm, .30-06 or a .308.
Generally, hunters will use a larger type rifle for bigger animal.
For animals such as the fox, groundhog or rabbit, you would probably opt for a .22 rifle.
While hunting birds also know as a birds shot, hunters will usually use a shotgun such as a 12 gauge, 16 gauge, 20 gauge and .410.
It is actually illegal in many districts to use a rifle because the bullet will travel a couple of miles where as a shotgun bullet is good for a few hundred yards.
Bird shots have a range of 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
The number 3 has fewer pellets in one shot so for example, you would use a number 3 for larger birds.
A 9 is used for smaller birds as it covers a greater distance and has the most pellets in one shot.
Maintaning wildlife habitat in The Kawartha Highlands Signature Site Park is important to us
Ministry of Natural Resources requirements and concerns
All Guests and visitors are encouraged to show a strong stewardship ethic, in order to protect the natural and cultural values of the area.
Hunting and Wildlife Populations Legal hunting does not endanger wildlife populations.
In fact, it can play an important role in maintaining an abundant population within the carrying capacity of its habitat.
Those species that are hunted are managed sustainably.
This management is based on sound science and long-term monitoring.
The pressures on our wildlife populations today include habitat fragmentation and destruction, pollution, invasive species and unsustainable use.
The Importance of Hunting, Hunters contribute a great deal of time, money, and effort to wildlife management.
Hunters are involved in a variety of volunteer programs that help maintain and enhance wildlife and their habitat.
In Ontario, the money from hunter license fees contributes to monitoring and protecting wildlife.
The funds raised with the waterfowl stamp on the federal migratory bird hunting permit support habitat protection programs that benefit all wildlife that depend on wetlands.

MNR / Trapping in Ontario
Trapping in Ontario is governed by regulations and policies administered by the Ministry of Natural Resources.
MNR uses a variety of management tools to regulate harvests and maintain healthy populations.
Wildlife management can help reduce conflicts between people and wildlife.
Examples of situations where management efforts may be of benefit include reducing Coyote predation on livestock, and rabies control.
Some furbearers can significantly alter habitat through actions such as dam-building (Beavers) or depletion of prey species (Fishers, Lynx). Others can create problems in and around human dwellings such as Raccoons and Striped Skunks in garbage bins.

Trapper Education
To qualify for a license, trappers must successfully complete the Fur Harvest, Fur Management and Conservation Course.
The course is administered by the ministry and delivered cooperatively by trapper organizations.
The course emphasizes safe and humane trapping, survival skills, good pelt preparation and sustainable management practices.

Legal hunting does not endanger wildlife populations,

Hunting is an important activity for people around the world,

The Kawartha Highlands contains many highly significant natural heritage features, Tracts of relatively undisturbed natural landscape with wilderness qualities that are large enough to support mammals with extensive home ranges, vast areas of exposed bare bedrock, older forest stands, representation of the transition zone between Palaeozoic limestone bedrock and Precambrian granite bedrock, high-quality bog and fen communities, sandy and peaty shoreline communities dominated by Atlantic Coastal Plain-associated plants.

There is a long fish stocking history of lakes in the Kawartha Highlands ( North Kawartha ) area, for species such as Lake Trout, Splake, Brook Trout and Largemouth Bass. The Kawartha Highlands was already a major natural recreational destination prior to the area being designated a provincial park. The close proximity of the Kawartha Highlands to the large population centres of southern Ontario makes the region a convenient destination for recreational pursuits.

O H E P - Ontario's Hunter Education Program - Required to obtain a P.A.L. ( Possession and Acquisition License )
Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters
Hunting is an ancient tradition and an integral part of our cultural heritage.
The ancestors of today's human populations ensured our survival by hunting for food and clothing.
Today hunting is still an important activity for millions of people around the world.
For many, it is still an important method of food gathering.
For others, hunting is a recreational activity that provides an opportunity to further friendships and camaraderie, an opportunity to experience nature and be in the outdoors to make an important contribution to conservation.
Responsible hunters support the rules that have been established to ensure that our wildlife populations are sustained and that hunting remains a safe activity.

The Ontario Hunter Education Program is administered by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.
In 1960, Ontario became the first Canadian province to establish a mandatory Ontario Hunter Education course that included training on safe and responsible hunting.

Ending the Long-Gun Registry Act
Study: Bill C-19, An Act to amend the Criminal Code and the Firearms Act
Short Title; Ending the Long-gun Registry Act
update April 5 2012 Bill C-19 was passed by the Senate on a vote of 50 to 27 and will be given Royal Assent by the Governor General.

Quebec says it will proceed with its own gun registry after a Supreme Court decision that paves the way for Ottawa to destroy data coveted by the province.
Parliament’s choice to destroy this data will undermine public safety and waste enormous amounts of public money. To others, it will seem to be the dismantling of an ill-advised regime and the overdue restoration of the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners, the majority ruling stated.
The court also rejected the Quebec’s argument that the destruction of the data amounted a violation of the principle of co-operative federalism, a concept that describes the network of federal, provincial and regional government co-operation on a myriad of issues.

Editorial: A long-gun registry for Quebec.
It seemed to be no coincidence that Quebec’s new legislation to establish a long-gun registry was tabled just days before the 26th anniversary of the Polytechnique shootings... Of course, criminals operate outside the law. A database won’t stand in the way of a determined killer. Canada’s National Firearms Association opposes Bill 64, calling it an annoyance for hunters and sports shooters. Twenty-six years later...

Couillard rules out free vote for liberals on long-gun registry
Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard says there will be no free vote (for the people of Quebec) for his liberals when the legislature eventually votes on whether to adopt a bill creating a provincial long-gun registry.

MetroNews - Alberta Ontario
High River ‘gun grab’ overshadowed aid effort, RCMP watchdog says;
OTTAWA - New watchdog report says the RCMP’s forced home entries and gun seizures during the 2013 flood in High River, slams the mounties for failing to report the weapon seizures to a court or to the public.
Metro News Calgary;

HIGH RIVER, Alta. - Residents of a flood-ravaged Alberta town will be compensated for having their doors and windows busted in during the crisis. The town council in High River, Alta., says it will be in charge of a process to reimburse people for the damage caused by RCMP and first responders as they went door to door during the evacuation of the town. The town issued a news release saying the process will be carried out with the collaboration of provincial officials and the RCMP. The issue of whether the RCMP had the right to take the guns, most of which were later returned, has been a political football in Alberta. Wildrose MLA Joe Anglin has called for a public inquiry into the matter, saying he can't understand why doors had to be kicked in if the army was flying over the community with infrared cameras.

OTTAWA - The RCMP watchdog says Mounties improperly took guns from flood-stricken homes in Alberta two years ago, seizures that angered High River residents and fostered mistrust of the national police force. Under the Criminal Code, such seizures did not require a warrant, but officers failed to take the necessary next step of reporting their actions to a judge. RCMP members exceeded their authority by seizing some guns that were properly secured or that were not "in plain view," the commission found. In all, 609 firearms were taken from 105 homes.

Top Mountie offers new details on High River gun seizures; RCMP’s district commander offered new details on the incident, including who ultimately ordered the sweeping search of abandoned(evacuated by law) properties. And while guns have been returned and tensions have eased, many continue to wonder who ordered the RCMP to enter homes in the first place.

Matt Gurney: Canada’s convoluted firearms regulations should have legal gun owners worried;
A motion called for Australian-style gun control in Canada... This would see a huge number of guns seized from their owners...

All Canadians deserve a firearms classification system overseen by independent technical experts. The RCMP and its government masters clearly aren’t up to this job.
