    some good news from Canada

    No, we did not make them a state

    THEY did end the Long gun registry

    http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/02...-gun-registry/

    You guys want to send your Politician to Albany and convince those idiots that registration doesn't work

    The majority of Canadians are still for the registry but the current govt was not and couldn't do anything about it till they had a majority in Parliament. I have no problem with people owning rifles for hunting but just like cars I would like to see them registered.

    Okay, I have to ask, why? Do the criminals register their guns as well?

    So that law abiding gun owners do not overlook the fact they should not sell their guns to non-law abiding bad guys.


    Having the registry or not is no big deal to me. Still have to have mine registered.

    Okay, I am still confused. Maybe it's because I am not familiar with your registration system, but how does that prevent it?

    All it does is allow the cops to trace guns that were used in crimes. It is possible to then trace them back to different buyers and maybe even smugglers or blackmarket types. I still have to get an FAC (firearms acquisition certificate) and do a the courses and police background checks. There are lots hunters with lots of rifles and in the long run, IMO, the registry doesn't harm any law abiding person.

    Im live in georgia and I know about canadas laws or regulations, are canadians allowed to own handguns, or anything that is automatic? I am glad to see the news about this gun registration stuff.
    IMO inside my home is MY buisness, if I cary concealed and they want THAT gun registered I am more understanding of the reasons. But registering a gun for the sake knowing where all the guns are, for solving crimes? I cant remember the last time I heard a murder using a .270 Winchester.

    Rather get shot by a hand gun than a high power rifle.

    So what it to stop you from selling an unregistered rifle to the kid down the street if no one knows the rifle belongs to you?

    As there is no right to bare arms in our constitution, the laws we make mostly reflect current conditions. When there is a massacre like the one above or the one below,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89c...nique_massacre

    we get quite irate and there is always a greater cry for more gun control. I don't know of anyone here that would advocate allowing handguns or any automatic rifles let alone mac10 type stuff.

    With very few exceptions, automatic weapons of any kind are banned in Canada. Any assault type rifle must be semi-auto only, there is no carrying of concealed weapons at all and there are strict regs for storage of the weapons and ammo.

    well for one thing common sense. second if someone is going to sell a firearm to ANYONE even if it's registered, I would think ten minutes later it will be reported stolen.

    Look, there IS a black market for firearms, there is no way to stop it or control it. Most firearms that are on/in the black market have been stolen from someone else. registering a firearm does nothing if the gun is found at a crime scene except let the police know who originally bought the thing, which means nothing because the cops are not going to give the gun back, they will destroy it. so big whoop

    How about this, lets punish the douche that uses a gun during the commission of a crime.....hey, theres an idea. lets make criminals pay.....naaa thats the liberal mamby-pamby the poor criminal is just misunderstood mentality.

    Registration DOES NOTHING to deter crime, why is that concept so hard to understand.....sheesh

    Lets check out the NYS CoBIS program. This is a unique registration program technically called "Combined Ballistic Identification System" or Ballistic DNA. Not only do we get to register our hand guns but we get to turn in A single fired case from that weapon.

    Read it and weep: http://www.ocshooters.com/Reports/cobis/cobis.htm

    As of Dec 1, 2011 there are 356,000+ guns registered, tax payer cost $44,333,333+, number of crimes solved, ZERO (although the system did have two "hits")

    Gun registration doesn't work because the bad guys DON'T CARE

    I thought they got rid of the gun registry because they finally realized forcing legal gun owners to register their gun wasn't making a dent in gun related crimes. Funny thing is that the criminals were not registering their guns. Go figure.

    SO glad I was born in Missouri instead of north of the border!
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
