Are all Semi-auto and Centerfires rifles and shotguns now prohibited? November 22nd 2022

No! The Amendment to Bill C-21 was tabled on November 22nd 2022.

The Liberal Government added an amendment to Bill C-21 effectively prohibiting several million additional, individual rifles and shotguns. These new prohibitions will include the SKS, Tavor, X-95, all AR180 and variants, Canuck bullpup shotguns, Crusader Arms, Kel-Tec Sub2000, SU16, RDB, RFB, JR Carbine, Kriss Vector, Ruger PC Carbine, Norinco T97 NSR, Benelli M4 and countless more.

This amendment has been put forward by the Liberal government to add it to Bill C-21. If Bill C-21 passes, these firearms as well as all formerly prohibited firearms will be enshrined in legislation.

Amendment Wording

The Canadian Shooting Sports Association shared the text of the amendment.

The prohibitions and confiscations target you if you own:

a firearm that is a rifle or shotgun, that is capable of discharging centrefire ammunition in a semi-automatic manner and that is designed to accept a detachable cartridge magazine with a capacity greater than five cartridges of the type for which the firearm was originally designed

Including but not limited to

  • SKS
  • IWI Tavor & X-95
  • all AR180 and variants
  • Canuck bullpup shotguns
  • Crusader Arms
  • Kel-Tec Sub2000 (and others)
  • JR Carbine
  • Kriss Vector
  • Ruger PC Carbine
  • GSG 16
  • GSG 15
  • Norinco T97 NSR
  • Benelli MR1
  • Benelli M4
  • all B&T models

SKS Among 400 New Models

  • The planned prohibitions and confiscations target the owners of roughly 400 models of rifles and shotguns.
  • They include owners of the SKS rifle, the CSSA said.
  • The SKS is Canada’s most-popular centrefire, semi-auto rifle, with more than 200,000 owners.

Conservative MPs on the public safety committee swiftly denounced the proposed definition, saying it would expand the existing regulatory ban by outlawing a broad range of semi-automatic firearms.

Conservative public safety critic Raquel Dancho characterized the measure as “an all-out war on hunters” in Canada.

“The Liberal government, with this amendment, is moving to ban almost all semi-automatic shotguns and rifles. So we’re talking bird hunters — bird hunters use semi-automatic shotguns,” she said.

“I am quite shocked.”

An amendment to Bill C-21, currently before a House of Commons committee, was tabled today that will ban all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns capable of accepting an external magazine.

That Bill C-21, in Clause 1, be amended by adding after line 15 on page 1 the following:

(g) a firearm that is a rifle or shotgun, that is capable of discharging centre-fire ammunition in a semi-automatic manner and that is designed to accept a detachable cartridge magazine with a capacity greater than five cartridges of the type for which the firearm was originally designed

This amendment also contains a huge list of firearms specifically identified by name, including the Simonov SKS and all variants, of which 22 are listed by name.
