Canadian border guards have a job to do in educating Americans about declaring their guns before entering Canada.  

In the last week, border guards seized 10 loaded handguns, a shotgun and rounds of ammunition at B.C. border points. 

Seven Americans were either arrested and charged or sent home.

The Canada Border Services Agency has issued a news release outlining the steps Americans must take before they bring their weapons into Canada.

They include declaring all firearms in writing and in the case of weapons prohibited in Canada, getting the licences and permits needed to transport the weapon into the country. 

Border guards have the authority to seize undeclared weapons.
