    Pray for your Northern neighbours that this goes through.

    The last estimate was that about two billion dollars has been wasted on this useless program.

    New federal bill would end long-gun registry

    It's a step in the right direction.

    It's about time that the Canadians ran out of 'Kool-Aid'.
    Now they need to bring back some sort of common sense to the people and allow them some sort of SD/HD.

    I hope I am wrong, but I don't see that happening soon ...

    Baby steps.

    We've got a long way to go. The leader of the Opposition has gone on record that he'll fight scrapping the registry.

    Know that Canada's much stricter than the US gun laws have done nothing, just like in the UK and Australia, to counter firearm related crimes including acts of suicide by use of a firearm...which is itself a criminal act. Even as they all have multiple layers of restriction and process involved toward citizens being allowed access to firearms.

    This too is a known fact per Canada's own government bureau of statistics and this was and has been reported amongst Canada's national news in recent times...

    The 2006 rate of violent crime involving the use of firearms in Canada remained stable for the fourth consecutive year, according to a new study examining trends in gun violence.

    Canadian police services reported just over 8,100 victims of violent gun crime, ranging from assault to robbery and homicide, accounting for 2.4% of all victims of violence. Handguns made up nearly two-thirds of all firearms used.

    Violent crimes were more often committed with other types of weapons than guns. Knives accounted for 6.2% of violent victimizations and clubs or other blunt instruments were used against 3.0% of victims.

    Source - The Daily, Wednesday, February 20, 2008. Study: Firearms and violent crime
    Further homicides in specific committed with firearms in Canada across a 9 yr. duration of study from '97 to '05 by Statistics Canada totaled 5,194 with just 2.7% of those being attributed to registered firearms, and just 2.1% had a valid firearms license.

    Given the fact that in the last 3 months I've lost friendships from Canada due to my beliefs on the issue, which pretty much echo many if not most around here, I would not be surprised if it does not pass.

    Unfortunately we currently have a minority Conservative government in power. If the Conservatives had a majority, it would pass no problem.

    I like how the first poster there points out how the Swiss are required to own automatic rifles. They have more guns per person in Switzerland than we have in the USA, yet their murder rate is not even close to ours.

    It seems in Canada that they've quickly realized that gun laws don't work. While here in the USA we wage a war each election on the topic.
