Harper (the now ex-PM) did end the long gun registry. He also enacted new laws that severely limit bureaucrats and the RCMP (who are our version of the ATF) from changing rules on which guns are legal and how we can use them without making them prove why they are doing it. Before they could just change the classification of a rifle to a prohibited weapon without giving a single reason for it. They had also been changing rules around shooting ranges by trying to make it so expensive to run one that places were shutting down. Not any more. Also he also removed the extra red tape needed around transporting things like handguns and AR rifles. Once you have a background check, go through required training, and get a firearms license, why would you then need to go through paperwork to say you can bring it to the range? That is gone now too.The new guy is apparently seriously anti-gun
As an American, Canada's supposed to be where you go to when suffering from electile dysfunction. I'd never stopped to think about where Canadians go when it's their politics that take a disappointing turn.
