The chamber is drilled and pinned with a hardened dowel of 1/2" if I recall.

An organization that I belong to sent an email today indicating they are going to take action either politically (we still have some political allies) or through court action. They tell us not to panic which is the first good thing I have heard in a day.

If you look on rebel news, apparently n their hast to get as many submodels of the AR15 as possible, the included a couple of websites and an Eastern locksmiths business name.

Perhaps one option is to go the museum/business route. That would allow the possession, display and use of these items.
I think the strategy to defeat this lies in how it was implemented as well. It is a massive confiscation of legally owned property and was done through a non-debated Order in Council by a minority government that isn't even sitting currently, all in the middle of a world wide pandemic with people dying and locked in their homes losing their livelihoods and businesses. Heck, you can't even gather outside to protest. Surely our fellow Canadians can see the injustice in that.

The stated reason was a response to the tragic Nova Scotia killings but the scope shows it goes way beyond that and had been in the works for some time. To use that tragedy as a spring board for such a massive underhanded political grab is fowl and beneath my contempt.
