Back in 1989, a Canadian nut went berserk and shot and killed several innocent people.
The idiot politicians at the time decided that the solution was to make Canadians register all of their guns, including “long guns”, hunting rifles etc.
The conservatives have been in power for a while and they voted last week to repeal the gun registry law.
As usual, the stupid law penalizes law abiding gun owners and sends a message to criminals everywhere that they’re victims are less likely to put the bullet in their head that they deserve.
I don’t know the origins of the Canadian right to bear arms, but the biggest mistake made in this country on the subject is to believe that our Second Amendment is about self defense or hunting.
That’s a part of it, obviously, but it’s there mostly because our Founders believed that the government should always be aware that we are capable of an armed uprising.
I would hope that that was the reason for the Candians’ insisting on the right to bear arms, eh.
