OTTAWA — The Conservative government says its MPs will celebrate after a historic vote to end the long-gun registry Wednesday evening, despite vehement opposition to the move in Quebec and much of urban Canada.

Public Safety Minister Vic Toews told reporters Wednesday, hours before the vote, that the government’s actions are long overdue.

“It does nothing to help put an end to gun crimes, nor has it saved one Canadian life,” he said.



.
“It criminalizes hard-working and law-abiding citizens such as farmers and sport shooters, and it has been a billion-dollar boondoggle left to us by the previous Liberal government.”

Quebec MP Maxime Bernier said MPs and gun-rights advocates will celebrate together Parliament Hil

  • Gun laws don't protect people. Anyone who is willing to kill you for the contents of your pockets is not going to be concerned with some stupid law telling them they have a gun.

    Gun laws put the honest good men and women at a further disadvantage, and increase the criminal's advantage.

    • @Kmanbay Anyone with half a brain and some research skills will, after a time, inevitably come to the conclusion that an armed man = a free and safe man. Then you would assume there would hardly be any anti-gun groups because no one could be this stupid. You then inevitably uncover powerful elite groups that have actively sought for decades to disarm the last remaining armed population, mainly the US but somewhat Canada. They want to disarm us because a disarmed man can be easily controlled by a More..

    • @john_b

      I absolutely agree with you. Those powerful groups you talk of; all governments, ultra rich and politically connected want you to be powerless.

      However, our rules don't apply to them. They have their own "protectors" with the best equipment, guns, money can buy. If they get their way we will not have the means to protect ourselves, and use that fact against us to come up with more rules to hem us in.

      As for the 1% I would disagree, I believe the number would be higher, and More..

    • @Omega47 Seriously I can't even believe how ignorant you guys are. Do you even know what the fucking gun registry is? It has fuck all to do with what kinds of guns you can own, let alone handguns. It's called the LONG GUN REGISTRY for a reason, dumb ass. Pistols will still be just as restricted as they were before this all happened. Jesus Christ do some google work before posting comments...

    • @Omega47 Thanks . According to the gov't there are 3.5 million gun owners in Canada and we own 1 million handguns . The gov't had to publish that to give the illusion that Canadians got liscences and registered their long guns 20 years ago . The real number is about 5.5 million firearms owners of which 2 million never got liscences and never registered the 7 million guns they own . What the gov't never wanted to talk about was a single Canadian gun manufacturer named Cooey that manufactured over More..
