Long-Gun Registry Efficient

Earlier on The Commentator, I said there was no credible report about the efficiencies of the long-gun registry. Now we have one. I'm not so sure about the conclusions.

By the way, I'm thinking of joining a gun club next year.

No joke.

I used to skeet shoot when I was a teenager. Want back in. Nothing like shooting inanimate objects. Nothing. Yesireebob.

Come to think of it, what would make it better is shooting priceless pottery and ceramic dishes from all parts of the world. I destroy works of arts - For free!


  1. I don't understand why people are afraid of registering their guns. Maybe because I'm not paranoid enough to suspend logic and buy one.

    I just want to make sure I understand properly... if "they" know who has guns, "they" are going to come and get them? How, may I ask? Are they going to hire enough people to raid every gun owner simultaneously so that no one is alerted beforehand?

    I got news for you: if you're afraid of "them" knowing you have a gun, joining a gun club isn't the way to go.

    *shakes head* Amazing...

  2. Apparently, I forget where I read this, there are 16 million guns in Canada in a population of 34 million.

    The issue is not registering them per se. Lawful people will do it. Like I would. It's the crooked folks and the actually effectiveness of the law which costs billions to run.

  3. Well why have murder laws, because murderers won't get the memo, right?

    You do realize that finding someone has an unregistered gun helps basically identify criminals, right?

  4. [Which isn't to say the crime that officers are looking for is unlicensed gun ownership, which I assume carries a fine, not jailtime, but that discovery of unregistered weapons or weapons with serial numbers scratched off may indicate the person has some reason for doing this.]

  5. Not sure if the murder analogy is appropriate. The point of the debate is the effectiveness against the cost. One of the country's most respected former police chiefs came down against it.

    Regestering a gun is fine by me. The only problem is A) does it do what it is expected to do B) is it financtially feasible?

    Right now, it's not looking good.

    DTS says ,it's not about the guns,more about the right to enter your home.

  7. Do you mean the state entering our homes?

    If so, they're already in.

    DTS.a person can enter a house in rural area anywhere in europe and find long guns in open view, not liecensed,but most things here related to government here is a threat,or a point of fear .it's not the people ,it's the system.if this concerns so many people,make it true democracy and put the vote to the people.this is how it be delt with in switzerland.

  9. Oh yes, I'm aware that's the case in Europe. Couldn't agree more. If the people feel threatened then they'll vote for it.
