Why do Americans think they can just pick up and move here? Like they are so frakin special Canada would be all " *squeal* oh my gawd an American wants to move here" Healthy love for your country is one thing but arrogance, really?

Oh and for the record, we don't want your kind (being crazy, religious, racist, nut bags). We worked through that shiat years ago.

You should contact the Canadian Firearms Program. Our gun laws are not as restrictive as most people think. Depending on your status, and what kinds of firearms you own, you may be able to bring them with you.

I've had enough problems at the border without bringing guns into the mix. I eventually plan on having my wife buy a few (she's Canadian, and sponsoring me), but haven't seen any places to shoot on the island yet.

Also, most are handguns, and the barrel length is too short - they're my CCW guns for the most part

Ah, too bad. The 4.1 inch barrel length is a bit of a pain.


I am NRA certified, got re certified here. If you have the paperwork it's all good. Further the registry laws are being relaxed and more so before the next election. Harper is a panderer.

umm.. no.

Wait till they find out at the border that they can't take their guns along with them.

cassanovascotian: If there are progressive's in the U.S. who think that moving to Canada is going to bring them to a more progressive, liberal society, I got bad news for them.

quit Kyoto.
Accepts the use of classified information gained through torture.
Drastically increased carbon output.
Tried to roll back gay-marriage.
his party even recently toyed with criminalizing abortion...

yeah, so I'm about as far left as lefties come, and if Obama gets reelected, I'm thinking of moving stateside.


This is literally the most idiotic post I have ever read.

Umm yes. Google. Do I agree? I'm not entirely sure. I do think grandfathering should have taken place. As for new owners I see no problem with education and registry.

However, it is difficult to get the 12(6) (prohibited handgun) certification from scratch. The registry laws may be relaxed, but the minimum of 4.1 in barrel length is specified in the Firearms Act. Nothing short of an amendment or a new bill will change that. If you can show prior ownership you might be okay, but nothing is guaranteed. The only real laxity in the registration process is for people who have let their PALs lapse. Brining prohibited firearms across the border (particularly prohibited handguns) is a crap shoot. Sometimes you're good, sometimes you're denied. As a collector with 12(6), I have had stuff blocked from import. The government really, really, really doesn't want more prohibited firearms brought into the country. It adds to the pool of those already here, and those keep getting circulated between 12(6) holders so they rarely have the chance to destroy them.

penetrating_virga: Dog Welder: Aren't these the same idiots who said they were moving when Obama won the first time? Why the hell are they still here?

And why should we take them seriously this time around?

Um.. yeah.. kinda of like all the Dems that threatened to move when Bush won his 2nd seat. Yawn.


Almost like it's a stock phrase about to turn into a saying...how interesting...

/Does anyone, anywhere, seriously take the 'move to Canada' thing literally? I thought we'd all agreed it was just a phrase. Like 'I have a bad feeling about this'.

What difference does it make? The overwhelmingly vast majority of Americans would never be allowed into Canada in the first place.

I left for Canada a couple of weeks ago, so I'm getting a kick out of this thread.

Uh, I like Obama, though. I only left for work.

Cythraul: I've actually looked into Canada's immigration policies and naturalization requirements. And my reaction was, "yeah, I SO do not meet their standards."

Unless I'm misremembering their 'must have' list.


It's actually pretty difficult to immigrate anywhere these days. Everyone wants the cream of the crop, so if you don't have skills that are in demand you aren't going anywhere,

CapeFearCadaver: I'm moving to Sweden.

There, it's in writing.


That;s much easier written than done. They're very selective.

Did Limbaugh promise to move to Costa Rica if Obamacare passed?

padraig: To all those who say that they'll move to Canada : Canada does not accept every American Tom, Dick and Harry. What makes you think that Canada will LET YOU move to Canada?


'Cause I speak both French and English, and have an advanced degree in an in-demand field (i.e., a Masters in Physics)?

You can't move to Canada, Canada is full

Brosef13: This is literally the most idiotic post I have ever read.


translation: what this person is saying is true, and I can't come up with anything specificallly false about it, but I don't like what he has to say, so I'm just gonna be a whiney douche...

prove me wrong : get specific.
