Therefore they have no reason to be trained in their use, or indeed allowed access to them at all. If you don't NEED an item that is designed to kill people, you shouldn't own it. Because obviously the more lethal weapons you have in a country accessible by the population, the more accidental fatalities you will get per year.
In Canada it's almost impossible to get a handgun carrying permit for safety reasons in urban environment but if you are a professional trapper, a geologists or a prospector who spends a lot of time in wilderness it's a factor that can be used to get an approval.

I look at this like putting an inexperienced driver in a nascar race, it's tragic, stupid and someone clearly left their common sense at home that day. But it's no good reason to change the laws. Dumbasses do dumbass things, that's nothing new. The conversations here have just been people who just disagree on gun laws and want somewhere to complain. This example doesn't change anything.

Non semi-auto shotguns and bolt action rifles can be used on private or Crown land where it's allowed and can be stored just with a trigger lock out of sight in the place of permanent residence. All firearms and ammo must be stored separately and ammo must be locked in a safe or inside of a gun room.
Unless the semi is considered restricted or prohibited we don't require a permit to take it to the range,
we also are allowed to hunt with semi's unless they're restricted or prohibited.

You are right, I forgot the mental retardation where a semi-auto still can be non-restricted on a case by case bases including the later re-classification when it could become a prohibited.

Why stick with guns? Why not ask for SCUD missiles too?

Does the old saying, guns don't kill people, people kill people still hold weight? Did that girl want to kill that instructor?

On a subconcious level. Because that's why people get call of duty games, because killing people is illegal so they play that instead to scratch that itch.

So I guess all the guys who hunt but are unable to operate a bolt or lever action are shit out of luck then? Most of the rifles that are banned are military grade rifles, there's plenty of hunting rifles that use the semi auto action and only hold three rounds.

I didn't say that. I am not against semi-auto at all and you can hunt with some of the military surplus too.

I'm sorry I misinterpreted how you posted it.
