Quote from: Ibrahim90 on August 06, 2019, 07:01:54 PMQuite surprising to see it in Canada--if only because, restrictive by US standards as they are, firearms are still easier to get than in Europe.Then again, I suppose any restriction creates incentive for this.
Quote from: Skm1091 on August 06, 2019, 09:19:13 PMCanada's laws are restrictive in some ways, but they are also less stringent than the US in other ways. For Example: You can buy short-barreled shotguns more easily in Canada than the US, which require ATF approval and a 200 dollar tax. One of the articles I posted, did say that Montreal is home of Canada's gun registration scheme and has the strictest laws in North America so I guess that could be an incentive. Another one could be demand for fully-automatic weapons (if these really are full-auto, because the articles don't really go into detail).Also, I think we are seeing this because of the proliferation of technology. 20 or 30 years ago computer aided machine tools were limited to large scale industrial operations And now they could be had for less than 3 grand in some cases. I think this is only the beginning of what is to come.Speaking of Europe, it really depends on your location. Guns are more readily available in Serbia than the United Kingdom, for example. In fact in much of the former Yugoslavia there are still many weapons leftover from the wars during the 1990s. Many of them were hidden away by private collectors, people who thought it would not be wise to turn in their weapons in case another conflict breaks out, or sold to criminal groups who want to make quick buck.
