While Bill C-19 (An Act to amend the Criminal Code and the Firearms Act, 2012) eliminated the long gun registry, individuals still need a firearms license in order to lawfully possess/acquire both ammunition and firearms.

RGSL has seen many students in the past who “…just want to get legal”. We are happy to help with this process and RGSL supports lawful gun ownership in Canada.

If a person is found with firearms in Canada but does not have an appropriate license, they are likely to be charged with a criminal offence for that.
