Cabinet yesterday pushed its gun control program off to the next Parliament after acknowledging stiff resistance. An amnesty and related buyback of prohibited firearms is now deferred until 2025 after the next general election.

“A Criminal Code amnesty period is currently in effect to October 30, 2023 and will be extended to October 30, 2025,” the Department of Public Safety wrote in a notice. Cabinet was “still developing a buyback program” with no deadline for enforcement, it said.
