The news itself is a little old, but there is one interesting piece emerging from all of this:
Coun. Sean Strickland of Waterloo asked regional councillors to support his request that the federal government amend legislation to include the licensing of pellet guns, air rifles and paintball guns that are currently exempt from federal laws.
Instead of banning pellet guns and air rifles etc., he wants them to be covered under the Firearms Act.
Is this the push we have been looking for?
