Liberals propose tightening Canada’s firearms law with new record-keeping practices

CBC News March 20, 2018

The Liberal government hopes to tighten Canada’s firearms law with changes to the background check system and new mandatory record-keeping practices for vendors.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale tabled Bill C-71 on Tuesday, which includes new provisions to "enhance" existing background checks for those seeking a firearms license.

Those checks will now demand the RCMP examine a person’s entire life history for potential red flags. The current standard assesses only the previous five years.
