    Default Alberta calls on RCMP to ignore Federal Firearms Ban within Province

    Updated Sept. 26, 2022 10:18 p.m. EDT
    Published Sept. 26, 2022 2:49 p.m. EDT


    Alberta Justice Minister Tyler Shandro says his government will direct RCMP in the province not to enforce the confiscation of newly prohibited firearms from what were once legal owners.

    "We will not tolerate taking officers off the streets in order to confiscate the property of law-abiding firearms owners," Shandro said Monday.

    Shandro says the province will use a dispute clause in the provincial police service agreement to keep officers from being re-purposed to enforcement of the federal assault weapons ban.

    "All Canadians whether firearms owners or not should be concerned about the scapegoating of law abiding citizens and the targeting of their property," said Teri Bryant, chief firearms officer for Alberta.

    ..............

    "It's going to cost billions of dollars to change how things are," said James Bachynsky, a co-owner of the Calgary Shooting Centre.

    He says no clear case has been made that public safety will be improved as a result of the ban.

    "They're treating us as bad guys, they're attacking us at every opportunity and claiming that somehow it's affecting public safety," Bachynsky said.

    A buyback program has been floated but so far, gun owners say they are being offered pennies on the dollar. Even so, the price tag is estimated to exceed a billion dollars.

    Many expect the price tag to be even higher.

    "Even if these costs can be contained to $2 billion dollars, that would cover the costs of some 12,000 person years of regulatory and enforcement personnel, or a fully-paid 20-year career for some 600 people," said Bryant, reinforcing the province's stance that money to combat gun crime is being spent in the wrong place.

    The provincial government is also filing legal challenges, seeking intervenor status in a half-dozen cases currently before the courts. Those cases generally challenge the constitutionality of the federal weapons ban.

    Shandro says federal government informed him last week it was planning to move ahead with the confiscation of approximately 30,000 firearms in Alberta this fall.

    if you want to lower crime, maybe focus on criminals? I dunno just seems smarter than confiscating legally obtained property from those least likely to offend

    It’s only eligible for the buyback because the “part” is legally a gun.

    How is it a buy back if the government never owned it?

    Provinces not abiding by woke federal ideology that makes no sense logically is something I can get behind.

    According to the law, this is the firearm, not the sum of all the parts. So hey, if Trudeau wants to treat it as a whole gun and pay me for it accordingly, go right ahead.



    I guess I'm technically breaking the law by not putting a trigger lock on it.



    Manitoba is siding with Alberta and Saskatchewan.

    Hon. Kelvin Goertzen
    2d ·

    Manitoba has consistently stated that our approach to gun violence is to focus on those who use weapons in crime, not law abiding gun owners.

    On September 13th, I wrote the federal Minister of Public Safety, The Honourable Marco Mendicino, regarding the “buy-back” program for guns that federal Liberal government is enacting.

    In that letter I stated the following:

    “We feel many aspects of the federal approach to gun crimes unnecessarily target lawful gun owners while having little impact on criminals, who are unlikely to follow gun regulations in any event. In Manitoba’s view, any buy-back program cannot further erode precious provincial police resources, already suffering from large vacancy rates, from focusing on investigation of violent crime.”

    We will be bringing these concerns, along with the shared concern of Saskatchewan and Alberta, directly to the federal government next month in meetings of Ministers of Justice and Ministers of Public Safety.
