If you haven't heard by now there was recently a study conducted by the CMAJ that focused on "Immigrant Youth and Firearm Injury Risk". In typical fashion the Canadian mainstream media picked up and ran with this story, and altered the findings to show that Ontario youth were being injured once a day by firearms. This couldn't be further from the truth, so don't worry, children aren't shooting each other every day.

The recent prohibition of the CZ858 as of January 2017 has raised many questions. First off it's important to note that this does not include all CZ858 that are currently in country, including the ones that had their prohibition reversed under Bill C-42 in 2015. This strictly effects a new import of CZ858 Tactical-2P “Spartan” rifles, which are now classified as prohibited.

When Magpul Industries pulled their operations out of Colorado in protest of the laws that limited the capacity of magazines to 15 rounds in 2013 the State lost 200 jobs and a 100,000 square foot operation that paid taxes and supported secondary industries in the State. Magpul has since grown to 380 employees in a new 185,000 square foot facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Recent announcements also have Magpul becoming the supplier of magazines to the US Marine Corps, a further loss to Colorado and a further boon to Wyoming.

Recently we wrote an article exploring the myth that Canada is more peaceful than the US. We used the most up to date statistics that we could find at the time of publication which was 2014 statistics. Since these were the statistics we used for that article, and like this article all of the material we source our findings off of was linked at the bottom of the page, anyone with a world view that opposed the article attacked the findings by attacking the 2014 statistics. The angle of attack against the article was that we used out of date statistics on purpose to slant the article into a viewpoint that we supported. Clearly they couldn't argue with the hard numbers that we sourced from trustworthy sites so they had to find a new avenue of attack. So we've done the same research, this time after having found the most up to date statistics at the time of publishing this article, 2015 statistics.

It's a common misconception, and in fact one that's loudly trumpeted by those opposed to self defense and concealed carry of a firearm, that the US is a more violent country than Canada. Yes, the US leads against Canada in gun related violence. However what someone that is touting Canada's 'superiority' in this matter doesn't take into account is that violent crime no matter how it's committed and no matter what item is used in the offense leaves the victim scarred for a lifetime, assuming the violent attack leaves them alive at all.

Sometimes in Canada there is good news for firearm owners. Of course it is worth noting that this news is only good because it's the expiration of the private members bill S-223, titled "Strengthening Canadians' Security and Promoting Hunting and Recreational Shooting Act". This was the kind of bill that used wording to make it sound good when it had nothing to do with security or promotion of hunting and recreational shooting.
