    Most Canadians who own guns own them for hunting purposes, and the number of people who own them is fairly high, but I believe it is lower then in the US, as not many Canadians own handguns for self defense reasons. So the number of urban and suburban owners would be lower then the US.

    Also the number of guns per person is much lower.

    Is there no provision to muster even the unorganized militia during any impairment to the domestic Tranquility of any State or province?

    Is the right measured by a gun count?

    I only own one firearm. The gun I own is illegal for a Canadian to own. I can carry said gun with me in my home, in public, around my city, to other territories and states. A Canadian cannot do the same in Canada.

    A Canadian who owns several rifles has less gun-rights then I do with my one gun.

    We never wanted one, we saw yours and thought it was a stupid idea. There is just so much potential for abuse it is astronomical.

    Technically concealed carry is legal in Canada but getting a permit is actually impossible. All the provincial firearms officers will never issue any concealed carry permits.

    .....or the federal parliament began producing gun control laws to hinder the RedRiver Rebellion. Canada maintains strict gun control laws because if it didn't, there would be another rebellion. There are significant demographics within Canada which don't appreciate certain actions taken by the government. Such demographics are growing in the US, and that's why there's a push here for more gun control.

    That's what Chicago did. They said "sure you can own a handgun, just register it"...and then they refused to let you register it. And that's why staunch gun rights advocates like myself object to seemingly 'reasonable' laws such as registration. We know how these laws were used in the past to remove the right, and we don't want history to repeat itself.
