Gun Registry Works

An RCMP audit has confirmed that the Canadian Firearms Program is working efficiently to save lives. This includes the long gun registry that is slated to be scrapped if a private members' bill passes in September. police chiefs support the long gun registry. Now, the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians says that the long gun registry saves lives. However, not needing fact to guide their decision, the Conservatives and some of the NDP will vote to scrap the long gun registry. The registry was costly to set up, but the lives saved from it are worth more than the money spent on it.

  1. How does this registry help "save lives" when crimianls who are inclined to commit crimes in the first place will not care one iota about being in viloation of this registry act?

    We can hear all the blather we like about how it is running smoothly and is cost efficient. There have already been security breaches with this registry. There is NO way that the way, WAY overblown initial costs of the registry can EVER be justified. 2 billion dollars buys a lot of MRI machines when there are hospitals that desperatley need them and we KNOW for a FACT that they save lives.

  2. And not just in violation of this act, even IF they were curiously inclined and stupid enough to register the weapons they use to commit violent crimes, but the illegal weapons that were never registered in the first place.
