Politicians from the largest city in the Canadian gun control stronghold of Quebec plan to put their weight behind a raft of severe gun restrictions next week. According to a report from Radio Canada International, the Montreal City Council is set to vote Monday to adopt a resolution that would echo the Toronto City Council’s call for new federal gun controls.
Following the shooting deaths of two people in Toronto’s Greektown neighborhood by an attacker with an illegally obtained handgun in late July, the Toronto City Council adopted a resolution supporting several federal and local gun restrictions. The measure called for a nationwide ban on all handguns and semi-automatic firearms, a prohibition on the at-home possession of firearms, shuttering the remaining shooting ranges and gun clubs in Toronto, and a local ban on the sale of handguns and “handgun ammunition” within the city.

How Australias Gun Ban on all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns worked out in 1996/1997
A campaign by New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to crack down on the National Rifle Association and similar groups is facing its first big legal test, with a federal judge expected to decide soon whether to allow a challenge to go forward.
Shopify quietly revamped its policies Monday, effectively banning the sale of certain guns, gun parts and accessories for online retailers using the e-commerce platform.
Shopify’s Acceptable User Policy underwent changes to include a new category of restricted items. On the updated list, semi-automatic firearms that accept a detachable magazine and offer a capacity greater than 10 rounds are no longer considered acceptable for sale via Shopify. Additional restrictions banning the sale of unfinished lowers, pistol grips, forward grips, threaded barrels, suppressors, thumbhole stocks and magazines over 10 rounds have also been instituted.

Andrew Cuomo using banks to target NRA, faces major legal test
Showmasters comment: NRA is coming under constant attack now from the radical anti-gunners, from the latest Democrat Governor of New York suffering delusions of grandeur - do these democrats out of New York actual think they are the President or the King of USA, but simultaneously costing the NRA money using public funds , to anti-gun biased media greatly exaggerated stories of Russian spies - it only boils down to one thing - more US citizens need to join NRA - all the extra fights with media and anti-gun politicians abusing their power requires more man power - send a message - if you let your NRA membership lapse rejoin & join a spouse, son or daughter, neighbor, more memberships to show a united force. PLEASE JOIN NRA Thank you!

Washington: Gun Bills Go into Effect
NRA-ILA TUESDAY, JULY 25, 2017
The U.S. Special Operations Command awarded Michigan-based Trijicon on Wednesdaya $7.62 million contract for handgun sights. The firm-fixed-price contract for what the military terms as a Miniature Aiming Systems — Day Optics (MAS-D) Handgun Reflex Sight (HRS) is set to run over a five-year period.
According to the award, the sight is “a low profile, wide field of view, passive sight for rapid day and night pistol target engagements in confined spaces, while prisoner handling, or in extremis after the primary weapon malfunctions.”
The U.S. military in recent years has embraced ruggedized miniature reflex-type, or RMR, sights on handguns. The winner of the Army’s Modular Handgun System contract, variants of the Sig Sauer P320 adopted as the M17 and M18 pistols, include a removable top plate for an RMR system.
The social network announced last week they are moving to scrub content related to downloadable 3D printed gun files from their platform.
Facebook, with an estimated 2.23 billion monthly active users as of the second quarter of 2018, said they are actively looking to remove such content, reports Reuters.
