A Major Victory For Canadian Gun Owners

supremecourtcanadaThe Supreme Court of Canada has ruled 5-4 on the side of Quebec’s firearms owners and has stated the Quebec long gun registry data must be destroyed.

“Quebec’s position that cooperative federalism prevents Canada and the provinces from acting or legislating in a way that would hinder cooperation between both orders of government has no foundation in our constitutional law and is contrary to the governing authorities from this Court,” the majority said. “The principle of cooperative federalism does not prevent Parliament from exercising legislative authority that it otherwise possesses.”

The case was sparked by Quebec’s demands that the federal government hand over the registration data collected for almost two million guns, which generated widespread controversy across Canada. With this decision, the Supreme Court of Canada has freed Quebec’s firearms owners from the wasteful firearms registration process.  SCI-Canada sends congratulations to our Quebec members and to all lawful firearms owners in the province.
