Eaton Centre shooting: Alleged killer had firearms offences dropped in Hamilton weeks earlier (CDN)

Source: The Toronto Star

Less than five weeks before the Eaton Centre shooting, accused murderer Christopher Husbands was in a Hamilton courtroom facing nine weapons charges and five counts of breaching bail.

Husbands, 23, who is facing two counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder after the Eaton Centre shooting, walked free in Hamilton after a prosecutor withdrew the nine weapons charges, which involved a loaded .40 calibre handgun.

At the time of the Eaton Centre shooting June 2, Husbands was out on $4,000 bail and under house arrest for an outstanding sexual assault charge from Nov. 2010.

Husbands has been detained for the Eaton Centre shootings pending his next court appearance Aug. 25.

3. we have the same problem

firearms violations are usually the first ones pled away. I noticed his magazines were not legal under Canadian law. I'm guessing his pistol wasn't registered and he doesn't have a Restricted PAL. Is that a safe assumption? If that is the case, can't put that one on the NFA or "gun nuts".
