Well it seems it is coved under the act. Learned something new today I never knew when they got back to meLots of criminals in Canada now … because a ton of people are doing face to face deals and not going through that Liberal BS to get transfer numbers. Total crock of shit. My son brought up a good point yesterday …. If he bought a gun from a friend, and didn’t go through the process … he could just say he is “borrowing” it. As far as I know … there is no law stating that one person with a valid PAL can’t borrow a rifle from another person that has a valid PAL.
