The VOICE of Anglers and Hunters since 1928

Firearms

UPDATE: Bill 30, An Act to amend the Ammunition Regulation Act, 1994 with respect to the sale of handgun ammunition (Fighting Back Against Handguns Act) was a Private Members’ Bill introduced in the Ontario Legislature that aimed to allow municipalities to pass by-laws prohibiting the sale of handgun ammunition within their boundaries. The bill was quietly defeated in early October 2018. The firearms community welcomes this decision and is appreciative of the recognition that law-abiding citizens aren’t the problem and that short-sighted feel-good policies won’t cure gun violence in this province.

NOTICE: Public Safety Canada has released a background document and questionnaire “A dialogue on handguns and assault weapons”.

The OFAH is in discussions with the federal government directly on this and will be pushing for Minister Blair to consult directly with law-abiding firearms owners in a meaningful way. It also remains critical that the firearms community responds to the questionnaire, which is only available until Nov. 10.
