Mr. Yu makes some good points, notably: “And Trudeau is not aware that military-type firearms such as the AR-15 is (sic) a restricted firearm and thus not allowed to hunt deer. Restricted firearms can only be used in gun ranges by restricted PAL card holders.”
Mr. Yu should also explain this to our Conservative MP Bob Zimmer, who dangerously and irresponsibly lobbies hard for AR-15s to become non-restricted and permitted for hunting in Canada.
Many AR-15s and like military-style semi-auto rifles can readily be modified to be automatic-equivalent and to employ high-capacity magazines. These deadly weapons are designed to efficiently kill soldiers on battlefields and are not necessary for hunting nor for self-defence. I would not feel safe knowing guys are lurking in the bush with AR-15s, and driving around with them, subject to loosened regulations on their transport, use and storage.
At the least, let’s keep them restricted to the gun range and limit the probability of AR-15s falling into the hands of criminals and deranged mass shooters (as often happens in the U.S.). And on Oct. 21 #voteanyonebutbob.
