Owners of firearms targeted by the May 1 OIC will essentially have two options:
1. Turn in your firearm for confiscation and compensation for a value still unknown.
2. Retain your firearm under a prohibited class, under very strict conditions and with the provision that they can never be used at the range, sold or transferred, passed to a heir through your estate, etc.
This actually flies in the face of the government’s stated reason these firearms were banned. It these firearms were of such a danger to the public that they had to be taken out of the hands of licensed Canadians why are the individuals licensed to purchase, possess and use these firearms now being permitted to retain them under yet undisclosed requirements.
