You think that's bad, your missing out on the part where all pistols have to be registered, and can only be taken to the range and to your home, no stopping or detours. Oh and you need a transport permit to legally take it to the range.
What if they're doing construction and you actually run into a detour on the way to the range.
Do they also charge you for each transportation permit?
No there's no fee other than the one you pay for your firearms license which expires every 5 years. You actually get what's called a long term authorization to transport permit which lasts the 5 years as well. This covers trips to your range that you are a member of. Some provinces restrict you to only going to the specific range you are a member of, not all ranges around you. Here in bc my permit allows me to go to any range. Now if I was moving or something, I would have to apply for a short term transport permit which would indicate which day and time I could transport the firearm to my new address.
Now when I say you have to go directly to the range from your house without stopping, there is some wiggle room. If you need to stop for gas or something. That's ok, kind of. You couldn't say, wake up in the morning drive around all day running errands and then go to the range at night.
It's an awful mess and a good example of what happens when you let people pass laws based on emotions and irrational fear. You guys keep your rights and fight for them. Don't be like Canada!
