Dawson Creek, BC – RCMP in Dawson Creek were responding to a report of a possible stolen vehicle…

Once stopped, the rightful owners were still in trouble.

Based on observations made during the traffic stop, officers at the scene entered into a drug investigation.  A search of the vehicle turned up a number of firearms, marijuana, and a small quantity of cocaine.

Officers also found a prohibited magazine for one of the firearms and, as a result, all of the guns were seized, as was a collapsible baton.

A 27-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man were arrested.  They have been released from custody on a promise to appear for possession of a controlled substance and possession of a prohibited device.




Prohibited magazine and device . Now who would be against stopping this kind of transnational gun smuggling . Oh ! I remember , Bob Zimmer . A vote against United nations protocol 55/255 is a vote FOR gun smuggling and murder in our streets . We don’t need NRA NORTH , BOB .

Actually wouldn’t. You see this was already a prohibited device – so putting the letters CA on it would accomplish what exactly? Being a prohibited device it would not be registered and thus not tracked by any “legal” system. Not sure how any of the “measures” in the UN protocol would have prevented these items from being in these peoples hands, perhaps you could enlighten us Ataloss.

This was transnational gun smuggling?

A 12 gauge shotgun = legal, a Ruger 10/22 = legal, an SKS = legal. An unpinned SKS magazine = illegal.

More people need to educate themselves when it comes to firearms and the laws surrounding them before making public statements on the internet.

This UN gun control BS is going to do squat to stop smuggling or murder.

The protocol only works if all producing , exporting , trans shipping and receiving nations comply with the protocol . We already have far too many guns already . Without a registry our police have to assume for their safety that all homes are filled with guns . Under the registry number on the magazine if it had one it could be traced . Thus the hole in our safety net that allowed this weapon component onto our streets could be plugged . I find it hard to believe these people could have opened up with those weapons on pg streets and slinky thinks that’s not worth preventing .

the prohibited device would be the collapsible baton lmao

prohibited firearm or ammo would be the appropriate charge for the “clip”

Prohibited magazine. Second one in a week. Probably the one above the baton or a over capacity on the sks

So putting a country stamp and date on the magazine would all of the sudden prevent it from being smuggled or maybe even modified. Sounds like you want the gun registry back Ataloss. Gun registry doesn’t prevent gun smuggling, smugglers do not use a registry.


ataloss I’m going to guess you don’t own any firearms. You obviously don’t hunt. You have no clue about guns except they look scary.

That gun law would only make it more expensive for responsible owners.
