The federal government has ordered the province to stop collecting personal information from people who buy long guns.

Nova Scotia’s firearms office collected the information under federal authority and continued to do so, even after the federal government killed the long gun registry earlier this spring.

Roger Merrick, the province’s director of Public Safety Investigations, said that will now end.

“We will be sending out letters to businesses that sell firearms, basically stating that they are no longer required to collect data on persons purchasing long guns,” Merrick said.
