When I applied for my Canadian firearms licence after passing my federally mandated PAL and RPAL courses, the RCMP got all of my information. They asked for everything from medical history, relationship history, familial structures, and a photograph.
However, when I recently logged online to renew my license, I noticed something peculiar:
An exception to the usual regulation requiring a photograph, citing religious exemption!
So, I contacted the RCMP, and you won't believe what happens next.
While I'm no fan of tighter gun control measures, shouldn't all law-abiding gun-owners be treated equally in Canada?
Why are special rights being granted to members of certain religious sects while other Canadians are held to a different standard?
