Ottawa wants to act within a year to ban assault weapons https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1414495/interdiction-armes-assaut-plan-ottawa-federal So it really looks like the Liberals are going to go through with this insane plan. There are hundreds of thousands of semi auto firearms that are not registered. Judging by what happened with New Zealand's buy back, this won't end well. The government plans on only giving 1000$ for registered AR-15s that cost 2-3k plus all the accessories. Yes Canada has a gun culture that brings everyone together. The sport was actually growing and more and more people were getting into sport shooting with semi autos and hand guns. This will not stop gang gun violence.
