Firearms Act, 1995
In addition to the law's passage, the Canadian Firearms Registry System was added in 2003.
For the most part, Canadians are not allowed to carry a concealed firearm in public unless they are police officers. Members of the Canadian Forces (Military) can only carry and use their weapons in public during war time or for special ceremonies.
Canadian citizens can legally possess registered firearms of any class (non-restricted, restricted & prohibited) within their homes as long as the permit allows for it. Restricted and prohibited have specific rules attached to their ownership, and these firearms can only be fired at shooting ranges.
