Some things are worse than useless; this is one of them

CSAAA Position Statement on Canada’s Firearms Marking Regulation

Canada’s robust firearms import/export regulations already comply with the recommendations of the UN Firearms Protocol – the Criminal Code Firearms Marking Regulation goes too far.

On June 1st, 2017 Canada’s Criminal Code Firearms Marking Regulation, passed into law in 2004, will come into force. The Firearms Marking Regulation is the Canadian Government’s interpretation of the recommendations contained in the UN Firearms Protocol, which Canada signed in 2001.
