Repeal of Firearms Records Regulations (Classification)
Description of the objective
Repealing the Firearms Records Regulations (Classification) (the Regulations) is required to reduce redundancy in records that the Registrar and the RCMP are required to keep. The Regulations are contrary to the Government's commitment to return decision making about firearms classification determinations back in the hands of police.
Indication of business impacts
There are no expected business impacts.
Public consultation opportunities
Opportunities for consultation include: discussion of the proposed Regulations with the Canadian Firearms Advisory Committee; pre-publishing the proposed Regulations in the Canada Gazette, Part I, in order to invite comments and feedback from Canadians; and, through Committee meetings, as the Regulations will be laid before both Houses of Parliament.
There are no controversial issues or any negative responses anticipated from the firearms owners, businesses, manufactures or law enforcement as the Regulations do not affect any current firearm determinations made by the RCMP.
