“The Harper government’s controversial bill to end the long-gun registry has passed the House of Commons, marking the end of a long political battle over one of the most controversial law enforcement measures in recent memory.” Controversial? Really? That’s leaderpost.com’s take on dismantling a useless, intrusive and wildly expensive process that’s reviled across the Great White North. Whatever. The Conservative-controlled Senate votes next, something that’s considered a fait accompli. We hope. “Once the bill becomes law, RCMP officials will begin deleting information in a massive database that provides details to police on what types of firearms registered gun owners possess.” You believe that, don’t you?
Home Gun Control Canadian Long Gun Registry One Step Closer to Oblivion
Delete, my ass! “We’re going to copy it off the server that’s accessible by law enforcement across Canada and storing it somewhere. Just in case. I mean, they have guns!”
That long gun registry will still be around in some form.Here in the US of A the BATFE is running the Etrace firearm internet tracing system & the National Tracing Center in violation of the 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act.
The excuse of the BATFE is that since the law passed after the National Tracing Center system was built , said gun registry is ‘exempt’ from the law.
Details collected by Etrace include:

Been following this for a very long time and I’m glad to see part of the mess being fixed. Hopefully the handgun registry is next.
Anyone notice the two babes in the photo?

From left to right, the honorable Eve Adams (Mississauga – Brampton South) and Candace Hoeppner (Portage – Lisgar) respectively.

Controversial: Something that I disagree with, regardless of its popularity or lack thereof.
Darn hosers in Ottawa finely got something right, eh. Hey, that’s great, eh?
Do you guy’s know that as a Canadian I can buy in Canada, gun powder, bullets, primers, brass, scopes, rifles, rangefinders, binos made in the USA but can not buy the same things in the USA and bring them into Canada. Not only that anyone caught selling Canadians these items are subject to jail time, huge fines a nd a public flogging on the white house steps. And we pay twice as much in Canada for these items, I would rather support you economy than get ripped off up here.
