No, it isn't. Unfortunately the Supreme Court of Canada, back in 1994, ruled that firearms ownership ISN'T
a right. Although I agree with responsible/accountable and licensed gun ownership, I don't agree with the banning of firearms for invalid purposes. I also don't see the beneficial purpose of firearm classification being moved out of the courts and into another origanization's hands, it's not like gun classification was taking up a lot of court time. If, for the sake of argument, new technology was developed for firearms and there was no guidelines in place, then a program, such as the CFP, could be used to handle the transition and how they relate to our current gun laws and ideals. Making it all up as you go is weird. I was watching an interview with some of the top staff of the CFP and a few of their brass seemed fairly anti-gun on a personal level, which may explain some of the BS that's occurred. Maybe it's time they had different leadership, as most RCMP members I've talked to are not anti-gun, they own and use firearms personally. But as I said, the Trudeau government isn't gonna come to our aid.
