What makes a “gun” a “gun”? Here’s the Canadian government’s WEIRD answer

Todd BrownRebel Blogger
 

The legal definitions for “weapon" and "firearm" are deceptive: Lies at worst, but misleading at best.

In my first article, I explained how the two definitions are intentionally conflated to make sure that all guns are legally categorized as "weapons."

Now I want to explain how the definition of "firearm" is an attempt by the government to “suck and blow” at the same time.

In the definition of "firearm," two distinct definitions of the same word are being forced down our collective throats

Again, here is the definition of "firearm" from the Criminal Code of Canada (CCC):

[A] barrelled weapon from which any shot, bullet or other projectile can be discharged and that is capable of causing serious bodily injury or death to a person, and includes any frame or receiver of such a barrelled weapon and anything that can be adapted for use as a firearm;

Now I am going to break this down into two parts.

In the first part, “firearm” means "a barrelled weapon from which any shot, bullet or other projectile can be discharged and that is capable of causing serious bodily injury or death to a person…" which I've already covered.

However, the second part reads as follows:

...and includes any frame or receiver of such a barrelled weapon and anything that can be adapted for use as a firearm;

Do you know what a frame or receiver is?

It is the part that everything else that makes a gun function attaches to.

The Canadian government thinks that this is the most dangerous part of the gun? Well, maybe when you throw it! On its own it is nothing more than a paper-weight.

However, current Canadian legislation mandates that the frame or receiver IS the gun.

Now, since the anti-gunners always like comparing guns to cars, why don’t we do that too?

When is a car a car? Let’s take one apart. There would be the body, seats, interior carpet, engine, drive train, wheels and then finally, the frame, the part that everything else attaches to.

Which part or group of parts is "the car"? Can you even consider one part or group of parts "the car"? Of course not.

So how can a part of a "firearm" be the whole "firearm," when all parts are needed to make the gun function?

There is a saying:

“It doesn’t have to make sense. It’s government policy.”

It is a weapon, and I am most certainly pro-weapon and for having the People armed with weapons for a defensive purpose. You Fudds can try to play word games all you want, call it a “target practice device” or “legal hunting aid” if you like, the government will still move to restrict regardless.

This Government in Canada is taking it’s marching orders from an un-elected Foreign body. The U.N..
- Lucis Trust – The Spiritual Foundation of the United Nations
The Lucis Trust is the Publishing House which prints and disseminates United Nations material. It is a devastating indictment of the New Age and Pagan nature of the UN. Lucis Trust was established in 1922 as Lucifer Trust by Alice Bailey as the publishing company to disseminate the books of Bailey and Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society. The title page of Alice Bailey’s book, ‘Initiation, Human and Solar’ was originally printed in 1922, and clearly shows the publishing house as ‘Lucifer Publishing CoIn 1923.’ At one time, the Lucis Trust office in New York was located at 666 United Nations Plaza and is a member of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations under a slick program called “World Goodwill”. In an Alice Bailey book called “Education for a New Age”; she suggests that in the new age “World Citizenship should be the goal of the enlightened, with a world federation and a world brain.” In other words – a One World Government New World Order. The United Nations has long been one of the foremost world harbingers for the “New Spirituality” and the gathering “New World Order” based on ancient occult and freemasonic principles.
-—- Ask yourselves why would they want to disarm you and criminalize you? Possible answer – they want to eliminate you because your considered a threat. Time to ask the real serious hard questions before it is too late.

Bravo Zulu

8 inch sewer PVC is 50 bucks per 10 feet, plus 100 bucks for four cementable caps. Then a good hacksaw and some PVC cement. A smart investment and good for two rifles, maybe more if u break them down. Throw in some desiccate packs, after a generous oiling, and the airtight environment prohibits rust.

We’ve known this since the requirement to register long guns (now repealed) – the first draft of the law sent to committee did not even include the receiver as the gun

- that was an after thought and was changed only after firearms user groups informed the drafters that in competitive shooting sports barrels, magazines, trigger groups, stocks, sights are subject to wear and are routinely swapped out for custom parts or different caliber replacements – they were informed the only thing that usually does not get swapped out is the receiver, so having laws requiring matching serial numbers on all parts of the gun is unrealistic, – just as expecting a gun registered with a certain description, length, calibre and configuration is ridiculous because firearms users customize their firearm many times during its ownership chain and life cycle. Keeping track of these changes would be onerous and needlessly expensive.

This is how abysmally ignorant these people were who were writing a law which carried criminal penalties for such paperwork description anomalies. Finally they settled on the receiver as “the gun” which must bear a registered serial number (if not they provided a “sticky label” with a serial number on it to apply to the receiver) – most of which fell off with use or the first time bore solvent or oil touched them – making the whole process and expectation futile in the maximum.

So there you go – a “gun” in Canadian gun law legalese is a harmless piece of machined metal with a serial number – Barrels, magazines, stocks, trigger groups, sighting systems and any other add on are simply unregulated “spare parts” – Of course a receiver devoid of a barrel, trigger etc. is incapable of fulfilling the legal description of a firearm – “being capable of discharging a projectile causing bodily harm” – this shows the depth of pointlessness in the current firearm regulatory regime and the rank ignorance of those running it.

I wonder how they intend to cope with a survival rifle or an expensive take-down rifle which have receivers which are normally stored and transported and sold devoid of a barrel assembly and incapable of being a “gun” by legal description?

Bet the dummies didn’t even know these existed

Not sure why but I always assumed firearms were guns that used gunpowder as opposed to pellet and BB guns which do not.

Mr. Brown I see that you are describing Justin and Gerald, in that sentence.

Start buying firearms.
Start buying ammunition.
Oil the firearm up.
Hide it.
Tell no one.
Someday you might b glad you did.

Can we have a list of the guns to be re classified?

Karan Singh commented – Does that means if I use my rifle or a shotgun for hunting moose, elk , a mule deer or a bear it is not a ‘FIREARM’??

It is not a matter of what use the arm is put to it’s a matter of capability of lethality -is is capable of human injury – even if this is not the stated purposes on the terms of the licencing

Seems silly I know, – just like if you are a man you have the equipment to make you “capable” to be a rapist, but you’re not are you – good thing the people who drafted the gun law didn’t turn their talents to licencing sexual intercourse.

Then I don’t need PAL and my rifle & shotgun is NOT a firearm because I use my tools for hunting these animals only.

Sheila, again you are absolutely right!! Keep it up!
Should the RCMP & politicians really care for public safety – they should be Registering DOCTORS> More more people die from doctors’ FUs than firearms, they ratio is amazing – I am currently searching for those stats and will post them as soon as I find them.
