[ - ] Apparently in both England and Australia, the number of legal, registered gun permits has been increasing for several years, while the total in Canada has been flat. Why is this? Canada remains the most-armed of the non-US Anglosphere nations, but it may be receding over time. Ammunition prices in Canada in recent times have often dipped below US prices, which simply didn't used to happen. American holders of Canadian gun permits (a few tens of thousands) now regularly engage in cross-border arbitrage in which they purchase firearms or ammo in Canada and re-sell it in the US. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Don't compare your own experiences (and I'm sorry this happened to you) with the Duggar situation.
