Unelected bureaucrats confiscate Canadians’ guns

It is a dark day when police, not the people’s elected representatives, can suddenly transform thousands of ordinary, law-abiding Canadians into criminals with the stroke of a bureaucratic pen.

Last week, Mounties declared a list of Swiss-made, military-looking rifles to be “prohibited.” The banned models had been sold legally in Canada since 2000 and as many as 13,000 Canadians own one or more.

Initially the word was that as of 10 p.m. Eastern time last Thursday, these guns were to be surrendered to the government without compensation. Firearms shop owners, who had them in inventory, likewise were expected to turn over their stock to the government which would not pay for the property it was confiscating.
