The Canadians are not disarmed, btw
Their citizens can own firearms, but they do have to jump through a few hoops we don’t. They are somewhat restricted in how many rounds they can have onboard, but they can have some cool toys we can’t get. Some things they can get no problem that we have to jump through hoops for, like short barreled rifles. This is a cool toy I’d love:
Once upon a time, pre Slick Willie, we could get Chinese weapons which are actually pretty damn good. Now, with Ovomit, we are having major problems getting Russian stuff which is also pretty damn good. We do make our own, but it costs a lot more. And I’m one of those who doesn’t care so much where it comes from so long as it works.
Here’s another cool toy that we can’t have without paying a tax that they can if they can have a rifle at all:
I’ve got a Ranch Hand, .44 Mag. It is a fairly accurate pistol, and the 12″ barrel gets a bunch more out of the .44 than any normal 6-8 revolver. But, without jumping through the SBR hoops, I can’t do this. Price of the parts PLUS $200 for a tax stamp just to increase the accuracy and utility of my 1892 replica lever action carbine. NFA 34 is the why of this.
ALL “gun control” laws are in direct violation of the Second Amendment, NFA 34, GCA 68, all that is directly in violation of the Constitution as written and adopted at the founding of this nation.
Okay, rant off. If you know what I’m talking about, you probably agree. State and local laws for firearms restrictions are Unconstitutional as well. The 10th Amendment states “If it’s not in The Mother Document, it’s up to you”, basically, and the 2A was from the beginning.
I’m just upset that it would necessarily cost me that much more to make such a simple mod to improve a totally useful device. I’ll follow the law which should not exist if I ever decide to do this.
