• Long Gun Registry

    From The Millionaire@VERT/PARKAVE to All on Wed Feb 15 15:01:12 2012
    Well it looks like the Long Gun Registry has been scrapped due to a vote in
    the House Of Commons YEAS=159 NAYS=130. I guess anyone can buy a gun now and shoot someone and the RCMP won't do anything about it because they won't know who owns it.

    The RCMP never did know. Everyone I know who has shot someone else has done it
    with either someone elses gun or one that is unregistered.

    The RCMP having a list of everyone with a .303 within drivable distance wouldn't help in the slightest in the places I'm from.

    Seriously, I'm unaware of a single case that the long gun registry helped solve. I'm open to viewing a list though and judging the value of the program based on that.

    How does a MP get away stating in the House Of Commons that he has never registered a gun in his life and doesn't plan to. His name is James Bezan and said it yesterday on CPAC around 2 PM PST.

    The registry was a joke, I'm glad it is gone. Gun control in Canada is more about politics and the appearance of getting dangerous weapons out of the hands of psychos than real safety. For example, I own two firearms, an FN-FAL and an SKS. Both are semi-automatic, gas operated, magazine fed. The FAL is prohibited and the SKS is not even restricted. It makes no sense. Especially considering the SKS is more concealable (spelling?) than the FAL.

    Maybe he doesn't have a gun?

    I'm not sure who he represents... some provinces refused to enforce the registry. Perhaps he represents people from there? If he represents people who have done the same thing, I'm fine with that... though he should have said something while fighting the bill, not after the fact to get a bit of publicity.

    He does have guns in his possession but he denounces ever letting anyone know he did. Well now they do... LOL! :-P

    Yeah... that would make me lean toward not voting for him.

    Look up Gary Breitkreuz... he's the one I *did* vote for.

    Yup so no one knows how many guns they have and so they can invoke more
    crime. Their slogan should be "Buy A Gun. Nobody Cares If You Shoot Anyone Anyways." LOL! :-P
