Canada ends long-gun registry
The United States of America, the nation that taught the rest of the world what it meant to live free, in 2008 elected a president who is bound and determined to force everyone into submission to his will.
Meanwhile, our neighbor to the north, Canada, is going in the right direction for freedom. Not only have they been privatizing more and more of their health care system, but also now they just voted to end their long-gun registry requirement:
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 Hill after Wednesday evening’s vote.
Good for them. I’m so glad Canada is going in this direction.
