Let's hope our fellow pro-gunners to the north of us gain a little more freedom soon...

On December 6, 1989, a madman entered a Montreal University, segregated men and women in a classroom, and shot 14 women with a Ruger Mini 14.

As the 20th anniversary of the shooting nears, Canadian gun control groups are frantically fighting the demise of the Canadian Long Gun Registry. It is set for a preliminary vote in the House of Commons today. If approved, a second final vote will be needed. The Bill has broad support.

The Firearms Registry Act was passed in 1995. Gun owners were required to obtain a permit by 2001. All guns had to be registered by 2003. The cost of administering the law was supposed to be low, however, with cost over runs, the cost has been about one billion dollars to implement. The Registry has had high costs and less than stellar compliance.

The Canadian version of the Bradys, The Coalition for Gun Control, had this to say about long guns, “Fundamentally, rifles and shotguns are the guns most likely to be used in domestic violence and accidents. This and suicides, particularly among youth. They are the guns most often used to kill police officers."

The President of the “Coalition” believes that if the government doesn’t have information on who owns guns, then they have no way of keeping guns from dangerous people. Perhaps they should explain exactly how that works in practice. They cannot. A gunman entered a "gun free" university and killed women. Is further explanation needed?

Many gun owners support a change in laws that require them to register their firearms and pay for licenses.The bill does not change license requirements.

The Bill also requires a cost-benefit analysis every five years to determine whether existing Canadian gun laws have been effective in improving public safety, keeping guns out of criminal’s hands, and reducing violent crime. It also requires the destruction of registry records.

Under the Parliamentary system in Canada, this bill is a “private Member’s Bill,” and Members of Parliament do not have to vote on strictly party lines.

Funny, here Brady's claims that handguns are the firearms most likely to kill police officers and to be used in domestic violence. I guess, the tune gets adjusted as needed, no facts should apply.

Here I always thought criminals were most likely to kill police officers... Are we still allowed to call them criminals, or are they "disadvantaged justifiably angry youths who really are good boys" now?

There are far, far fewer handguns in circulation in Canada due to the fact that they are classified as restricted weapons and thus hard do obtain. Therefore, the gun control groups have moved onto the next easy target, rifles and shotguns.

Take those away and they'll claim Airsofts are responsible for killing officers.

Yep. .25 and .32 are actually banned outright.

The gun grabbers will say anything to get their agenda to progress. Even if they end up contradicting each other. Mindless, shallow individuals.

Someday reason will prevail again and people will realize that you cannot legislate crime away.


But all this stuff now is about agenda and control not about reducing crime or keeping people safe.


Most crimes are committed at night.....why don't we just impose sundown curfews, that way anyone on the street after dark must be a criminal right?

Actually, airsoft guns are illegal in Canada. There's a law against 'realistic-looking' non-firearms. When I had to move back to Canada during the dot-bomb bust earlier this decade, I had (among other things) a Walther P99 pellet/BB gun. When I declared it at the border, they took a it away for being 'too realistic looking'. I had to sign a waiver that I knew they were being taken for destruction under that law.

Airsoft guns, being largely indistinguishable from the real thing to an untrained eye, are illegal for the same reason.
