Government sources say they're puzzled by Canada Post's refusal to receive the weapons, since the corporation already delivers guns that are sold online? Seriously?

Well, as a guy who’s been involved in second party collections for a significant part of his life years ago, I can honestly say that Someone’s perception of you is different when you’re Santa Claus versus when you are the Grinch…if that makes any sense?

Ottawa's plan is to have owners of banned guns place the unloaded and secured weapons in government-issued boxes and then send them back to the government to be destroyed. The owners would then be financially compensated.

How ‘bout just have have people walking into every police station and RCMP depot and just drop their confiscated property on the desk? Why isn’t that an option? Because of officers safety?

Canada Post is refusing to collect firearms that were banned by the federal government in 2020, complicating Ottawa's plans for a buyback program to remove 144,000 firearms from private hands, federal sources say.

Federal officials told Radio-Canada they still believe using the postal service would be the "most efficient" (???) and "least costly" (???) way to recover banned weapons such as the AR-15, which cannot be used or sold in Canada since a federal ban was imposed four years ago.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberals promised a buyback program in both the 2019 and 2021 elections. The government officially announced the process in 2020 and is now hoping to finalize it before the next general election, set for the Oct 27th, 2025 now.
The government initially gave itself two years to remove these weapons from circulation. An amnesty period — during which owners of banned firearms must keep them locked up at home — has since been extended to the end of October 2025.

Ah…the same poison pill magic date again? Poilievre, why aren’t you doing what we were clearly incapable of doing?

Here's the great hypocrisy. Because of the Militia Clause, everybody agrees that the Second Amendment, insofar as it's applicable today, certainly applies to "militia" weapons. . . i.e., light infantry weapons. The whole argument is over "self defense" weapons.

Well, these days light infantry weapons include automatic rifles, grenades, and light rocket launchers. So I really need to go shopping.

Why piss around with that light shit when you can buy a complete Patriot missile system?
