Yet another story of gun seizures at the border.

I was just reading this article from the paper today and thought once again of the question that keeps popping up about guns and Canada.

http://www.windsorstar.com/seizures+...6391/story.htm

In particular this quote from the story stood out:

Quote:
Two days later, <name withheld by me> was charged with smuggling and evading compliance at the Queenston Bridge when officers found he had an undeclared revolver, an undeclared handgun and an undeclared semi-automatic pistol in a safe under the bed in his motor home.
This is just being put out there for information purposes only since the question seems to come up a few times a year.

I personally take no stand one way or the other but I thought the information was pertinent to those looking to travel to, or through, Canada.

Note to mods: I know how this topic can quickly decelerate into the political, and ask that you help keep the topic on track, as an informative one only.

Undeclared??? If he declared the guns he would be on his way.. border security do not like surprises.

Interesting!
But not unexpected!

And given the current climate of this forum I see a lock in the near future.

Thanks for the reminder just the same.

Yeah, what I thought was interesting in this case was that aside from declaring, it sounds like he was doing things right. They were locked in a safe (assumed gun safe), the safe was hidden, it wasn't on him or near where he could reach as a driver.

But in the end, he was still charged.

There are still restrictions on what you can declare and take into Canada. For instance no semi-auto pistols. Revolvers are limited to 4 1/4" barrel (I think). All other sporting rifles and shotguns are pretty much ok but still have some funny rulings.

True, there are restrictions in Canada. I have travelled the world and always abided by local country's rules. Why risk trouble? When we travelled to the US we made sure we didn't have any food that was illegal to bring in, all meds in original containers, dog had health certificate etc. In Canada handguns and semi automatic guns are restricted.

You have respect other Country's rules period. Even in the USA not every state will permit you to carry CCW. I live in Virginia and when I go to Florida, Georgia is the only state that will not accept the State of Virginia ccw permit. Look at the guy that made a wrong turn in Mexico 3 mos and still in jail. You have to be responsible for knowing the laws. That's part of being a responsible person with a firer arm.

My understanding is the guns would have been taken and then returned (if not stolen before then) when they left the country.
