But recently, more Americans are arrested for carrying prohibited firearms in Canada. (Picture shows recent seized firearms from one vehicle) Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Do you think Canada should make it illegal for US citizens going to / coming from Alaska to carry prohibited (in Canada) firearms ?

Just curious to see what you think.

If something's illegal in an area, I don't think "Don't worry, I'm just passing through" is a good excuse.

I'm surprised it isn't already.

I'm inclined to say that it should be legal to carry them through.

Should be easy enough to declare and inventory the weapons at the incoming border and inventory them at the exit border to confirm nothing remained in Canadia. Identity information can be used to track the person down for prosecution if they fail to leave the country.

So the Japanese should be able to bring their child p*rn Manga on trips through the USA, right? The Dutch can bring all their weed, yeah? The Mauritanians can bring their slaves along? What stupid logic you have.

I was thinking there could be a fee to have them packaged up with a customs seal to be released at the next border.

For perspective, it is NOT legal to carry a concealed weapon in your vehicle if you're going from one state where you have a concealed permit to another, if your travel takes you through a state that doesn't have reciprocity.

For example, driving the usual route from Virginia to Florida with a concealed weapon is not legal, because Georgia doesn't recognize CCPs from Virginia.

That would be a good way to address it.

...or perhaps even seal them in a package and have customs put a lock on it that can be removed by agents at the next border. Save the shipping costs.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I used to work in international shipping and customs seals are serious business, so I can imagine they could put some pretty severe penalties on that stuff to make it work.

I think that’s up to Canada. It’s certainly within their right as a country to prohibit it. Is it really going to have any positive or negative effect? Probably not.
