Ok and that’s fine, owning one is not for everybody. But there is a couple point you made that aren’t consistent I would say. First off, collecting is one reason people own a restricted gun, but so is target shooting and competition shooting. As for “only military and law enforcement” should have these types of guns, I don’t think you understand the difference between what a military use and what is made available to public. Most of the guns banned were restricted guns, meaning no you can’t hunt with them. But they are not used in military, only made to look like a model. Restricted guns are usually semi, and for example an M16 is chambered in .223. That’s barely enough to take down a deer. In fact, the hunting rifles that are Not being banned will most likely appear in a higher caliber. And yes these hunting rifles can be semi-auto too. These guns aren’t automatic like you see in military or in call of duty. Those are prohibited in Canada and have been since the 1970/1980s (I cant remember the exact year). Too add, restricted and non-restricted guns have a maximum magazine size of of 5. While handguns have 10. The ruger mini 14 can hold 10 too since it fits a certain handgun magazine but it’s illegal to do so. The only type of guns that don’t have a limit on magazine size, is rim-fire guns. These are chambered in a .22 and below. (I do think this should be brought to the 5 magazine limit too)
so to sum up, these guns are not used by military, these aren’t call of duty guns, they are guns which are classified as restricted, which are being used for collecting, target and competition, but not hunting.
