    Default canadian vote 164 to 137

    Many of us canucks were celebrating last night, the private members that was brought forward by Candice Hoepner to abolish the long gun registry passed with a vote of 164 to 137 yesterday! It still has to go through the senate, but Harper has a majority there so it will slid through easy! Harper made a lot of friends yesterday as he told us from day one he would scap the registry and now he has!

    That's great Yukon. I know you guys are happy about that. Does that mean we can bring a long gun into Canada to hunt without all the red tape or is that still in effect?

    Default bringing guns in

    ragtop, yes when this stupid law is gone when you come hunting you wont have to register your gun, hence no $50 dollar fee and no red tape. plus the 8 million guns that are now registered (quite a number of those belong to americian hunters) the paperwork on them will be destroyed! Finially some common sense in our govt!!

    One of the local womens transitions homes immediately condemned this and our territorial MPs voting in favour of it as promoting violence against women
    I'm still trying to figure out how these people equate responsible firearms ownership with violence against women, or anybody else for that matter.

    It's like gazing into a boiling cauldron of bat droppings to figure that out.

    You mean I can change my attitude about Canada now? We are close neighbors on two fronts and I had a bad taste in my mouth the few times I hunted in Ontario and had to pay to take a rifle across the border. And I certainly did not want to pay to cross when I do decide to drive to Alaska. This is good news for sure. Thanks

    Well, at least you CAN bring firearms here, i can't take them into the US since "Homeland Security".
    We used to be able to take a firearm for bear protection when we went fishing in Haines, but no more.
    So tell me, what was/is your attitude about Canada? Maybe i'm misreading your post? I hope so

    Attitude was about the Canadian government and my opinion that they are anti-gun. I was unaware that you can't bring a gun into the US. Also, I can't, or not without alot of paperwork, bring a handgun into Canada. However I can fly over Canada and take a handgun into Alaska anytime.

    Probably hasn't hurt the outfitters business with the current "charging to cross the border" but it may have made hunters look other places.

    One thing, I am glad the laws have changed for you and the registration.

    WOW! That oughta stop a lot of Terrorism. Especially when combined with searching Old Ladies.

    I would imagine there are a lot more people going hunting in Canada, from the US, than vise versa. ??????

    I don't know why you're getting the run around. Check again. My Canadian relatives bring long guns into the U.S. all the time. At worst you'll need to fill out an ATF Form 6, but right on it it says....
    No permit is required for a nonresident of the United States to bring firearms and ammunition into the United States for legitimate hunting or lawful sporting purposes, provided that the firearms and such ammunition as remains following such shooting activity are to be taken out the United States by such person upon conclusion of sporting activity.

    My attitude about Canada is the government is as anti gun as California's government or even more. However the folks all over Western Canada are great people like I find all over Alaska, California has some friendly people also but more than it's fair quota of jerks to.

    As far as Canadians not being allowed to bring guns into the US any more I did not know that and will check it out. If it's so I am about to start a letter and email campaign in an attempt to get the US to allow gun reciprocity with Canada. Our countries and citizens are too closely intertwined to have our border keeping Canadians from bringing guns that are completely legal here.
