The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is committed to keeping prohibited and restricted firearms out of our communities and ensuring that those who break our laws are held accountable.

On April 26, 2023, Jonathan Ressler, a United States resident, was sentenced to 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to the possession of loaded, restricted and prohibited firearms without a license, contrary to section 95(1) of the Criminal Code.

On March 19, 2023, Ressler was seeking entry to Canada at the Pacific Highway port of entry where he was referred for secondary examination. A search of his vehicle revealed two loaded pistols and four prohibited overcapacity magazines. One of the pistols is a prohibited firearm while the other is a restricted firearm. CBSA officers arrested and charged him for smuggling and possessing the firearms and prohibited magazines. He remained in custody pending the resolution of his court case.
