Canadians Debate Repeal Of Long Gun Registry

Our neighbors to the North have long been saddled, as have we, with absurd usurpations of their right to self defense. Portions of their ordeal may be at an end.

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Ending a $2 billion joke on taxpayers

Many jokes get played on April Fool’s Day. This year, however, April 1st brings a chance to end one long, painful and expensive joke that has been played on taxpayers and law-abiding gun owners. On that day, the Parliament of Canada will debate ways to improve gun registry in Canada and to save tax dollars; in part by ending the long-gun registry. This will be accomplished while maintaining public safety.

Thankfully, the debate won’t just be rhetorical. It will involve voting on a Private Members Bill moved by Garry Breitkreuz, the veteran MP for Yorkton-Melville. Members of Parliament will have a genuine opportunity to end this outrageously wasteful program.

Back in 1995, then Justice Minister, Allan Rock, sold Canadians a false bill of goods with Bill C-68, the Canadian Firearms Registry. The idea was to create a national registry to license long-gun owners and their guns, much like provinces do with cars and drivers.

  1. Even the Second Reading is up in the air at the moment. It is supposed to go April 1, but may be delayed.

    And yes. The Firearms Act was based upon the “omission” of revelation of lies that were used to get it to pass.

    The entire Act needs to go the way of the dodo.
