Canada’s gun laws aren’t terrible TBH. There are some more restrictive training and permitting requirements than in the states. But the nationwide registry was abolished in 2012 (Quebec has their own.) Some models are banned or restricted. But there are generally workalikes and lookalikes available. There are no transferrable full autos, but the import restrictions aren’t as strict. The real issue is just that there isn’t the same “gun culture” and people’s sense of popular sovereignty is totally invested in democratic processes and institutions (which are easy to corrupt and pervert) and not in the right to revolt, which is stigmatized more and celebrated less, compared to the breakaway colonies… (And the right of self-defense is weaker with basically no provisions for legally carrying or using firearms for that purpose.)
