When I first looked I thought they were adding all those guns listed to the last ban.  I almost sh*t myself.  I was already in the planning stages to move to some remote place in the north.

If I'm reading this correctly; all the weapons listed in Appendix A are NOT being banned.  So the bolt-actions and single shot and such are here to stay.

These are the proposed changes that I could find. I searched this out before looking for the effective date. Has this been written or is it still in limbo? Protest
