Canadian Gun Registry’s Looming Demise Welcomed By Retailers
NEWTOWN, Conn –-(AmmoLand.com)- A move by conservative members of the Canadian Parliament to end the nation’s long-gun registry has been welcomed by Canadian firearms retailers.
One retailer noted, “I think common sense has prevailed. The objective to eliminate crime in Canada has not been met.
It’s been too costly. I believe that the money that could be saved here would be better used by putting police on the streets where we do have problems with crime.”
Much like in the United States, gun control in Canada has pitted urban representatives against rural representatives.
