Colion Noir posted a list of banned firearms. 
Scroll down the list and you'll find things like Javelin missiles, M-79 grenade launchers, and various mortars.

I didn't know they were readily available in Canuckistan.

I wonder if their laws require them to be named, which would be why the list is so comprehensive; and which all it would take would be for the manufacturer to change the name and it's now not illegal.

IIRC 40mm launchers used to be unrestricted in Canada.

IMO, they shouldn't be restricted here.  Restrict the explosives if you need to, but they are no more dangerous with practice rounds than a flare gun.

That said, getting registered destructive device is appealing to me.   =D

I'd like to know that too.   ???

Bet Jayne is glad they didn't name Vera . . .

Apparently Star Wars blasters are also on the list:

https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2020/05/05/watch-canadian-police-with-weapons-drawn-cuff-girl-dressed-as-stormtrooper-for-star-wars-day-promotion/



Like the guy on that twitchy link siad "I'm teetering hard" regarding support of Law Enforcement.  I know intillectually that a lot of them are good folks trying their best to do a hard job, but there's a TON of anecdotes like this that are starting to add up to actual data.

In a situation like this, I probably wouldn't do it, but I wouldn't be sad if someone doxxed the individual officers involved.  They shouldn't get to hide behind their shields.  THEY responded to the call, and THEY decided to respond to a storm trooper in that fashion.  THEY need to own it.

I'd be just as, or more inclined, to doxx the nanny that called that in to the cops.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

Well, their ban now includes assault coffee...

Update from Canada

Quote
    The federal government is proposing $1,337 in compensation for turning in an AR-15 rifle under a mandatory buyback program.

    Public Safety Canada has released a price list detailing how much money owners of banned firearms can expect to get under the program.

    At the higher end of the scale, forfeiting a Swiss Arms SG550 could net an owner $6,209.

    Ottawa will seek input from gun owners, businesses and industry on the proposed compensation amounts from now until Aug. 28.

    The mandatory buyback program would cover the more than 1,500 models and variants of what the government considers assault-style firearms, banned two years ago.

Do they mention the M241 Pulse Rifle, like California did lo those many years ago?

What was that about a pearl handled revolver and someone from New Orleans again?
