Mr. Bob Corbett (Fundy-Royal):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Under present gun control laws, the black-powder hand-gun is classified as a restricted weapon. In the words of the National Firearms Association, "if one has any knowledge whatever of the intricacies involved in the operation of these firearms, it would be like comparing the use of a model-T in modern car races". Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage-Marquette (Mr. Mayer):
That this ridiculous provision be brought before the Standing Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs to be reviewed and amended immediately.
