Do you own a BB, pellet, or other airgun? Are you a Paintball or Airsoft enthusiast?
Well, if you are, you are not alone! You have been directly targeted in the Liberal gun control legislation Bill C-21.
The Liberal government’s proposed law would make you a criminal in possession of prohibited devices. Don’t believe it? Read the excerpt from this legislation as posted below. You will be shocked.
The bill does much more than that – here is our summary of the key points of the legislation: Guide to C-21
There is nothing good in this bill.

2.Contact your member of parliament, your provincial MLA/MPP, and your local city councillor and mayor. Tell them that you are opposed to federal Bill C-21 in its entirety. Bill C-21 will have an effect on all three of those levels of government.
a) Make an appointment to speak to these elected officials in person.
b) Call and write letters and emails to all levels of government to oppose this unjust bill.
3.Join and support Canada’s National Firearms Association at NFA.ca – We stand with you in this fight.
4.Work to ensure that the Liberal Party of Canada loses the next election.

Liberal proposed changes to the Criminal Code affecting airguns from Bill C-21:
1 (1) The definition replica firearm in subsection 84(1) of the Criminal Code is replaced by the following:
replica firearm means any device that is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, a firearm that is designed or adapted to discharge a shot, bullet or other projectile at a muzzle velocity exceeding 152.4 m per second and at a muzzle energy exceeding 5.7 Joules, and that itself is not a firearm, but does not include any such device that is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, an antique firearm;
(2) Section 84 of the Act is amended by adding the following after subsection (3.1):
Certain firearms deemed to be prohibited devices
(3.2) For the purposes of sections 99 to 101, 103 to 107 and 117.03, a firearm is deemed to be a prohibited device if
(a) it is proved that the firearm is not designed or adapted to discharge a shot, bullet or other projectile at a muzzle velocity exceeding 152.4 m per second or at a muzzle energy exceeding 5.7 Joules; and
(b) the firearm is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, a firearm, other than an antique firearm, that is designed or adapted to discharge a shot, bullet or other projectile at a muzzle velocity exceeding 152.4 m per second and at a muzzle energy exceeding 5.7 Joules.
