    Damm this is fine day to be a gun owner in Canada, the battle is far from won, but as one person put it, the day the registry was implemented was our Pearl Harbour and this vote is our Midway. It's going to be a hard fight, but we now know what victory tastes like and we want more, now to celebrate with a nice cold beer.

    If Canada can get rid of some of it's reg. on guns more power to them. The difference between a subject and and citizen is the citizen has the power to say stop it to their government, and the means to back up the stop it if they will not lesson.
