We’re coming after your AR-15s, said Beto O’Rourke when running for POTUS in 2019. But in February, O’Rourke moderated that warning with: “I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. I want to make sure that what we do is defend the Second Amendment. I want to make sure that we protect our fellow Texans far better than we’re doing right now.”
Why did O’Rourke back down? Because in Texas, no gun-hating political aspirant has much chance of ever winning political office. More importantly, the Second Amendment says Americans have a right to own guns. So, unless O’Rourke can somehow arrange to have the Second Amendment removed from the Constitution, Americans may own, buy, sell, or transfer a gun.

It’s a different story in Canada. Canada has no law specific to gun ownership. All Canada must do to ban guns is to invoke an Order in Council (OC). One such OC, effective in October last year, froze the movement of handguns. Canadian citizens cannot now buy, sell, or transfer handguns within Canada, nor bring them into the country. Eventually, guns in Canada will be extinct with this rule.
