[39] Registering, conveying, and transporting a restricted firearm in Canada, as every restricted weapon permit holder knows, is considerably more complex, time-consuming, and inconvenient than registering a motor vehicle. Under existing Canadian firearm laws, designating a firearm as a restricted firearm eliminates its use in hunting. A person caught hunting with a restricted or unregistered firearm faces severe criminal and civil penalties udner the federal Criminal Code and provincial hunting regulations, ranging from forfeiture of property including both the firearm as well as motor vehicles, and fine/or imprisonment.
