In Canada, the definition of weapons is broad, and can include anything from brass knuckles and blunt objects, to knives and firearms.
Weapons charges in Canada can be broken down into one of two categories:
- Carrying/using a weapon
- Carrying/using a weapon for the purposes of committing a crime.
