Description

Gun control has been in the news on both sides of the border - even as legislation goes in different directions. Canada just destroyed its long-gun registry, even as police officers who relied on its data called for its preservation. But here, we focused on the implications of failing to update gun laws for 20-odd years: Namely, such neglect creates unforeseen, potentially lethal loopholes that - for example - triple the legal magazine limit. But it's one thing to write about this. We went one better, obtaining dummy ammunition and a magazine cartridge to demonstrate in video online the ways in which outdated laws can be used against the public good.
