FIREARMS BAN – How does it impact you?

FIREARMS BAN – How does it impact you?

The OFAH continues to work every angle in an effort to seek clarity and obtain the answers that firearms owners need about the ever-evolving nature of the firearms ban enacted by the federal government on May 1.

As we dig in to these changes, we continue to learn more about how the recent bans are affecting hunters, sport shooters, and collectors. These efforts have resulted in a significant update to the FIREARMS FAQ on our website to:

  • provide additional clarity from the RCMP on 10- and 12-gauge shotguns;
  • dive deeper into the common questions about why hunters should care; and,
  • offer highlights from the OFAH’s detailed analysis in most sections.


If you have questions related to the ban that aren’t answered in the FAQ, please let us know and we’ll do what we can to get the answers you need and deserve as a legal firearms owner.
