New findings in the recent internal Audit Of The Management Of Firearms show that both the Canadian Coast Guard and the Department of Fisheries of Oceans were found to be in breach of federal government firearms regulations.
Both the Coast Guard and the Fisheries department use rifles and handguns, and the report notes that “areas for improvement were found”, specifically in the storage and tracking of these firearms.
Further, 410 firearms out of a total of 1,908 were missing from a national inventory, and that the existing records were “not always accurate”.
According to Blacklock's Reporter,
“Auditors also found dozens of firearms, at least sixty, were decommissioned without evidence they were properly transferred to the RCMP in compliance with regulations.”
Meanwhile, banning law-abiding and safety-conscious Canadians from owning guns has been a theme for the Trudeau Liberals.
Earlier this year, the RCMP's Firearms Commissioner pushed back against Trudeau's threat to grab guns from adults holding a valid Possession and Acquisition License (PAL). Commissioner Brenda Lucki published a report stating that there are “no reasons why, in the interest of public safety,” that PAL holders should have their firearms repossessed.
