    I am a Canadian American or American Canadian, I wasn't born in either country. I live most of the time in the states, where I own guns, vote and complain about the government. About 4 months out the year, Katie and I are at my home in Quebec, where I own guns, vote and complain about the government. I have taken serveral firearms into Canada, with a lot of paperwork and I have a PAL. Katie has a POL, which she is a native born Canadian.

    When I want to do a scheduled hunting trips with a guide or a service, I never have problems taking rifles into Canada.

    I know of one person that got an atitude at the border while he was in his big RV about the gun questions. He got searched, they found a vintage 1911a in his RV. He was given a choice, he could go see the judge or he could surrender that pistol and leave the country. He surrendered the 45 and left the country, ever since that day he has hated Canada. I don't know if they were giving him a hard time or were they going to take him in front of a judge, from what I know about this guy, the judge would have been the appropriate thing to do.

    If we argue with one another it is hard to present a united front for carry to the opposition.

    Iti sounds like a typical question. The agent watches your reaction to the question.

    I am wondering what the crime rate invovling firearms is in Canada? They have outlawed most if not all pistols.
    The gun crime rate in Canada is quite lower, according to a documentary I watched a couple of months ago, than the United States. One thing to consider here though is that Canada has less than half the population of the States, and less ethnic diversity than the U.S. too. Oh, yea, they also don't share a boarder with Mexico either.

    I do not know what documentary you watched or who put it together, but according to the NRA, John R. Lott Jr., et.al. and the primary sources they cite; Canada has a exponentially higher crime rate per capita then the U.S. with the same firearms that Canada has banned that are still legal in the U.S. in most municipality's...

    With Canada's reported violent-crime rate of 963 per 100,000 The Daily, Thursday, July 21, 2005. Crime statistics a rate about twice the U.S.'s (which is 475), Canada's politicians are understandably nervous.

    Long gun registry is a waste: Chief Hanson is right

    “...From available statistics, among the 27 countries surveyed, it is difficult to find a correlation between the existence of strict firearms regulations and a lower incidence of gun-related crimes. In Canada a dramatic increase in the percentage of handguns used in all homicides was reported during a period in which handguns were most strictly regulated. And in strictly regulated Germany, gun-related crime is much higher than in countries such as Switzerland and Israel, that have simpler and/or less restrictive legislation.” - Library of Congress, “Firearms Regulations in Various Foreign Countries, May 1998″

    What you wear

    Couple short stories on some friend that went "north." One is an NRA instructor friend of mine that had on an NRA T-shirt on crossing. After the same questions that many on this post mention, they looked at her shirt and did a complete tear down search of the vehicle, even through repeated denials of firearms and the right reason (fishing) for going there. The other is a retired LE who had on a cop shirt and went through the same thing. I like many here have no desire to go there, nice scenery or not. We have nice places in Minnesota. They can have their socialist paradise but not something I am interested in.

    I have several handguns in Canada, ones I purchased there. Over the years I have heard a lot of horror stories about Canada. Many are just not true. BUT you have to respect the fact that it is a foriegn country, it is not a part of the states (yet).

    In Canada, you are not allowed to have those Chinese Assault rifles, there is a long story about why, but in a nutshell, a member of Parlament showed up in camo with an AK and killed a few folks in Parlament. If that happened here, we would be see a lot more gun control, whether constitutional or not.

    When I cross the border, I get strange questions, like have you ever been in front of a judge? I have to answer yes, during my divorce. Another one question that was asked, whats your business in Canada, I said to see my girlfriend, the Canadian agent replied, does your wife know?

    If any one wants to comment of the Canadian healthcare system, please remember we just got one here in the states that is much worse than the one in Canada.

    Katy, who is a Canadian citizen, wears her NRA ball cap while crossing the border and never has any problems. She is working on her Life Membership.
