Living on the borderline (Windsor/Detroit) we see people bringing guns into the country daily. Well at least as far as the inspection station. If there is one thing CBSA is very good at is catching guns. We average 1 person a day it seems that are charged.
Don't even consider just showing up and thinking you can talk your way through it.

You really don't need to bring a gun to Canada.

The great thing about Canada is you don't need a gun to defend yourself.

I've thought about that. The problem I see is that I will ship from the last US state before I leave (New York) to the first state when I het back (Illinois).

What could go wrong with that????

Leave the gun off the boat. You don't need it on the loop.

I'm probably one of the few people who ever did the loop and called 9-1-1 because of a serious physical threat at 11 pm from another boat trying to board us. Trust me, it was the biggest thing that had happened in Paducah, KY all year. Every police officer, squad car, and K9 team was at their town dock where we were tied up within 45 seconds. You couldn't have armed yourself that fast...

Are you serious?

Gun violence in Canada is a lot more common than you think - The Washington Post

I guess you should probably not come to cruise in Canada. If being able to bring a gun here is a determining factor on whether you cruise here, or not, you should just stay home, where your chance of being killed by a gun are much much higher than here in Canada. Don't forget, I sell guns!

I was wondering how long this thread would last before we lost our self control. OP, you have most of your answer. Good luck! For the rest of us, let's talk about Jesus...
