So what's next...

...seizure of any Dodge Neon... that sports a wing or hood scoop?

Just before Christmas, owners of certain firearms were informed by letter that their rifles had been reclassified as prohibited weapons in Canada and they must be turned over to police officials.

Failure to comply would mean the weapons would be taken by force and the owners thrown in jail. The reason for the change: The rifle looks scary.

The Armi Jager AP-80 is a .22-calibre rimfire rifle that looks like the AK-47, the Soviet-era military rifle. The fact is the AP-80 doesn’t work like the AK-47, fires a vastly smaller round than the AK-47 and has no parts that are interchangeable with the AK-47.
I guess throwing more resources at chasing actual criminals is just too much work.

Frightening stuff this. I had dealings with the former Chief Firearms Officer in BC. Not even touching the bases. Struck me as an elderly comedic "girey-man" having a fit. I asked him whether he'd seen the news where Russian citizens were dragging bureaucrats out into the street and shooting them? Wasn't it great!!! Had he seen it? By this time he was so red faced I thought he'd have a coronary festival any second and he said "We don't comment on the actions of foreign governments". and left. He didn't like me telling him he was the problem, not the solution.

As this is a "GOVERNMENT SCREW UP"
they should "grandfather" an appropriate claus into the effected legal owners PAL to accomidate them.
But that would not fit their agenda of confiscation of all fire arms.

Big government + logic = oil + water. Totally incompatible.
