Canadian Firearms Terminology, lesson 1:

Clip = An incorrect term used to describe a magazine

Magazine = see cartridge magazine

Cartridge magazine = A device or container from which ammunition may be fed into the firing chamber of a firearm. The Cartridge Magazine Control Regulations set out the limit for the number of cartridges permitted for different types of magazines. two common types are box-type magazine and tubular magazine.

Just for FYI...
"Banning firearms to prevent criminal use of guns is about as smart as banning
marriage to prevent spousal abuse, or banning pregnancy to prevent child abuse. "

"When just seconds can mean life or death, the police are just minutes away"
