    Canada court rules air guns now classified as firearms

    Canada court rules air guns now classified as firearms

    I guess the cold snowy weather permeated the brains of the judges up there!

    http://www.guns.com/2014/11/14/canad...d-as-firearms/


    What kind of ruling is this???

    “It will be left up to police, prosecutors and courts to determine what charges will be laid, which will be prosecuted and ultimately who will be found guilty of this nebulous and ambiguous offence,” the NFA said in a statement."


    Speechless...

    "Air gun owners are now bound to the same requirements firearms owners are for storing, use and transportation, but because the country’s firearms storage regulations do not currently apply to air guns, there is ambiguity in what constitutes “careless storage,” the group said.

    The new provision applies to any air gun capable of causing serious bodily injury or death, with the threshold set at any air gun capable of firing at more than 214 feet er second."

    Not all air guns are created equal:

    Strange that Canada declares certain airguns as firearms... However a day earlier there is a report that air guns would no longer be considered firearms in Michigan...go figure...

    Michigan

    "The legislation would redefine the term "firearm" to exclude guns that propel a projectile by gas, spring or air."


    PS. That Dragon Slayer is impressive...

    Like the Nazi's did in WWII when they re-classified Jews as sub-human, hence it was not murder to kill them.

    Same with guns and stuff....they just change a particular gun into a "weapon of mass destruction" definition.
