Canadian mail order guns from 1902 to 1975

The first ad is from 1902 and the second from 1975.  The ads are available here for many other years.  Mail order guns in Canada were available up until 1979.

A history of Canadian gun control is available here (1945-1977) and here (1867-1945).

It must have been a bloodbath of mass shootings in Canada back then- in the 1934 and 1936 catalogs they had a 60 shot rifle. BY MAIL ORDER!!

Even worse, in 1945 and 1948 you could get an "automatic" rifle! With a 14 shot magazine too! (Winchester!)

Oh the humanity.
