Alberta won’t support Canada’s efforts to seize prohibited weapons, minister says
The Alberta government is taking steps to oppose Canada’s firearm buyback program which includes potential seizure of thousands of assault-style weapons.
Since May 2020, Ottawa has prohibited more than 1,500 different models of assault-style firearms from being used or sold in Canada. It has committed to establishing a buyback program to remove those firearms from communities.
But Alberta Justice Minister Tyler Shandro says the government is “fearmongering” by labelling guns as “assault-style,” which he said is a move to scare Canadians unfamiliar with firearms.
Jill Croteau has more on the province’s protest and the steps it is taking to keep guns in the hands of Albertans.

Funny how gun owners call themselves law abiding citizens but will disregard a law when it is one that effects them. Not very law abiding.
I fail to understand what is so bad about trying to get rid of assault weapons. It’s definitely a political move that sounds more based on American politics than our own, but why does anyone need an assault rifle?
I am not a gun owner but I do support the gun owners. I feel better when my neighbor has one. We need to go after criminals not create criminals. Go Alberta go!!.
I think saying that they’re coming for our cars next year might be a bit of a stretch.
easy solution cut ALL federal funding to alberta and impose daily fines against them. Send the RCMP in to arrest all police who wont enforce the law
Tobacco use is the number 1 cause of preventable disease and death in Canada and causes 45,000 Canadian deaths each year. Smoking causes about 30% of cancer deaths in Canada and about 85% of lung cancer deaths. In 2017, 28,600 Canadians were diagnosed with lung cancer and 21,100 died of the disease. Tobacco is 4 500 000 000 percent worse than guns? But Hey Guns are just the worst thing in Canada right? What happened to priorities. The Federal Government is broken. Alberta hold fast.
Legal guns has nothing to do with the rampant crime rates. There should be laws to help the regular citizen defend themselves. BC random attacks have become out of hand in the last year.
Guess im moving to Alberta, since they actually care about their citizens
Is a "buy back" a "seizure?
No, it’s not.
These politicians are in the pockets of foreign delegates so they won’t think twice to sellout their country heritage.
Most law abiding gun owners want the AR15 style rifle off the market. They want this style of gun gone. We don’t say anything because we are harassed by bots until hell freezes over.
How does one stand on garud for thee if not armed?
Woman are disproportionately impacted by guns!
History and statistics are a weakness in the minds of Canadians who support gun confiscation agendas.
Just think half the people are below average intelligence by definition, and all you need as a politician in a first past the post popular democracy is about 30% of the vote if it is relatively evenly distributed over most of the country. You can get elected by stupid people alone, by selling lies and misinformation, promoting division, and unfounded fear.
I am so happy that there are a huge lot of Canadians agreeing about why bill c21 and this is absolutely pointless and garbage, makes the Canadian side of me absolutely proud
Alberta, do not capitulate.
Funny how they leave comments on for this but Not for the Segment on the rigged elections in Quebec …..
In the United States there are 450 million guns owned by private citizens, if owning guns were a problem you would certainly know about it.
I’m agreeing with Alberta? Good job Trudeau.
Alberta is so much like Texas. Oil, affordable housing, low tax, low crime rate, and love for guns too
worst global recession. This is a wag the dog moment.
I’m 100% sure when I lose my handguns to Trudeau all the criminals will give up theirs.
Just like I know paying more taxes solves climate change.
I also know that large fake prosthetic breasts with giant nipples prevents homophobia in schools.
It all makes sense.
This makes me proud to be from Alberta.
welp, looks like im moving to Alberta.
Canadians never have property rights. Even the lands they pay for are all owned by the queen, or the king now.
Wokeness is a mind virus..it is arguably one of the biggest threats to modern civilization. At its heart, wokeness is divisive, exclusionary, and hateful. It basically gives mean people a shield to be cruel, armored in false virtue. – Elon Musk
Where did you find a stalinist supporter in Alberta. Downtown Edmonton in an NDP office I bet!
First you have to prove that there is some linkage between legal gun ownership and crime. Then you have to explain why you are the ones changing a rule to turn perfectly good law abiding citizens, into criminals over night.
the funniest thing is that trudeau banned ARs because someone committed a shooting with a police issue rifle, which was ALREADY ILLEGAL IN CANADA FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN LAW ENFORCEMENT OR GOVERNMENT
If you don’t know anything about guns you have to realize that assault rifle is not a type of gun any more than hot rod is a make and model of car
Okay , Fair enough , don’t help , just do the rest of Canada a favor and keep all your prohibited weapons in Alberta , …
The legislation bans the reselling of hand guns. No one hunts with a hand gun. And no, the feds aren’t coming after your mobile home Jethro.
David Swann, I’m an Albertian, and you do NOT speak for me, or anyone I know.
He said that most ALbertans wants the confiscation of guns….how does he know that???
Over and over again I’ve heard Trudeau and his people talk about how there’s no place for assault weapons in this country. They don’t think that he has no intention of taking this type of gun away from his bodyguards or any of the government officials that have them they say that this stuff belongs on a battlefield not on a city street but they just mind regular people having them. The freedom Convoy scared the crap out of Trudeau and his minions. The ruling class does not want the peasants to be able to stand up for themselves plain and simple.
There is no such thing as an "assault style" rifle and legal gun owners are not the problem.
They should outlaw crime next
*crime rate drops to 0% 📉*
Alberta is the texas of canada😂💩
Addressing gun violence? Lmfao
We, the Canadian crime syndicate, express our deepest gratitude to the government for making our job safer than ever. Thank you.
Alberta’s people dont worry Indians will support for referendum, coz soon Canada name will be change to Pak Khalistani. Indians dont want to see Canadian people to die by Pak Khalistani.
Ban Trudeau, not guns.
Alberta, the future hub of illegal weapons smuggled into the other provinces.
Every Liberal supporter should remember this very clearly. Eventually the Conservatives will be in power once again. If they chose to act in the same unilateral way to enact laws that you feel infringe on rights and freedoms yet they support the personal interests of the people that support the Dems, will you cry "unfair" and expect those people to focus on our proper democratic process instead of their own personal interests because that is what is right? If you didn’t oppose Trudeau’s firearms bans because of the way that he enacted his legislation, why would you expect the people that did to do the right thing when your personal interests are affected in the same underhanded way?
Canadians need to focus on what is right for our democratic process, not on their own personal desires for the outcomes if they do not occur in the democratic way that we are supposed to live by.
Thank God! Right on Alberta.
Finally somebody with balls
