Canadian Gun Registry

Help Support Ranchers.net:



This is an e-mail that came from the north country...Now I know many makes of guns and especially older and imported guns have duplicated serial numbers- some have all the same serial number- but maybe some Canadians know if the rest is true.....

If it is maybe we can send their gun registry some of our USDA bureaucrats.....
:wink: :???:

We didn't make this up

>>By comparison, Canada hired only 130 additional customs officers to

>>In the beginning, the government's firearms licenses had
