Canadian House Votes to Nullify Useless Long-Gun Registry

NEWTOWN, CT –-( Canada’s House of Commons last week voted to nullify a long-gun registry law that had been in place since 1995.

The bill still needs to be ratified by the Canadian Senate.

Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said of the registry, “It does nothing to help put an end to gun crimes, nor has it saved one Canadian life. It criminalizes hard-working and law-abiding citizens such as farmers and sport shooters, and it has been a billion-dollar boondoggle left to us by the previous Liberal government.”

Read more about this long overdue action, as reported in Canada’s National Post.

Despite this example of such legislation being not only ineffective and costly, but also an erosion of personal freedom, California passed its own long-gun registration law in the fall of 2011.

thank goodness the registry will be no more. It will be a good feeling not to be apprehensive thinking that my property will be subject to confiscation at the whim of some bureaucrat, just like the RCMP just did late last year to some 22 that just happens to " look like " an Ak-47 ?? That is exactly what the registry is all about, taking ( stealing ) Canadian citizens property without compensation….


We have all kinds of folks like LaughingMan in Canada who, with the new laws allowing electronic eaves dropping, are now beginning to whine and snivel because of the new laws being considered regarding monitoring the internet and other electronic communications media. To him and his latte sipping granola crunchers I can only say, "Suck it up sweetcheeks, you now know how we, as hunters, target shooters, ranchers, and farmers have felt for so many years."


I wonder if the 'LaughingMan' Knows he's a moron?


Vic Toews should be banished from Canada!
