Gun Registry Saved

It was close vote, but the long gun registry lived to see another day in a 153-151 vote! Throughout the almost year-long journey of this bill through the House of Commons, there was a lot of panic on whether it would go or not. I have to admit, even I was scared that it could go. It would probably not have been reinstated for a long time. Anyway, Harper vows that someday the gun registry will be destroyed. But, the important thing is that it is here for now and it will remain unless there is a Conservative majority, which would allow them to whip out teir secret agenda. Canada remains safe and victorious.
Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and Bloc Québécois Leader Gilles Duceppe had long made it clear that they intended to halt Bill C-391. The Conservatives supported the bill, so the registry's fate lay with the NDP, which allows its MPs to vote as they wish on private member's bills.
Six New Democrats voted with the Conservatives — Nathan Cullen of B.C., Niki Ashton and Jim Maloway of Manitoba, Dennis Bevington from the Northwest Territories and Bruce Hyer and John Rafferty from Northern Ontario.
