As an ex-canuck, the province of AB is as close as you can get to being Texas. Not only is it conservative and choc full of oil, but the home of separatist movement in canada. However, the national police called The RCMP or Mounties’ never liked the idea of firearms being freely owned by citizens.
One difference: try this in Texas, and there WILL be violence. OK, one other difference: the local PDs would side with the citizens even though certain police chiefs (I’m thinking Plano, TX) might try to order otherwise.
