The Conservative Government of Canada; now in a majority position in parliment,today introduced legislation to scrap the Canadian long Gun Registry.The legislation also calls for the destruction of all records pertaining to the 7 million long guns currently registered. The Canadian tax payers have, according to some reports spent approximately 2 Billion dollars on this program .The benefits of same in reducing crime have been minimal.This investment could have been put to much better use fighting organised crime.
The legislation will be welcomed by all legitimate owners of long guns.Mandatory registration of side arms and certain automatic weapons will remain in place as will the registration, training and testing for all new gun owners.

One more reason for being pissed at Hudak for running such a piss poor campaign. He just gave away a provincial majority Conservative government.

Whatever happens in Ontario and Quebec, the rest of the country will have arguably among the least restrictive sporting guns regulations in the world. The shooting sports did not lobby against sidearms regulations in effect for 80-odd years.

I would suspect that the Cattle Ranchers and farmers in the western provinces might have paid scant attention to it anyhow. I know thats what would happen here. Law enforcement would play the dickens trying to take guns away from our local ranchers..

I don't usually comment on another Countries proposed legislation but I do have a question here. Does this mean that a ridiculous regulation that for example prohibits the owners of pistols with barrels less than 4 inches remains in effect? I've run into this before with fellow Luger collectors from Canada where they can legally own an artillery model with an 8 inch barrel but can't own a standard model with a 4 inch barrel.

Jim, no changes to the hand gun regulation at this point in time. No changes to the licensing regulations for any kind of firearm.

Specifically just the demise of the long gun registry and the destruction of the information it contains. It's an important step as it's the first roll back of government intervention in the lives of gun owners. Everyone here is already now looking forward to the next step.

Takes a long time to turn an unwilling tanker around!

Our oppressive hand gun regulations have been in effect since the mid 1930's. At the time of the introduction of the registry and new long gun licensing requirement in the mid 1990's they significantly added to the handgun regs by outright prohibition of certain kinds of hand guns, a back door method of getting rid of roughly half the handguns in the country. There was a grandfather clause if you already owned the prohibited types but you can only transfer them to others grandfathered in. The plan is that once everyone grandfathered is dead, those guns will be destroyed.

Lots more work to do but the destruction of the registry is a good start.

Last dollar, there are estimated to be approximately 14 million long guns subject to the registry. there are about 7 million on the list. Bit of a discrepancy there.

Actually James, would you believe the government rolled back a regulation once before. While it was not a registry, it seems back in the teens you had to have a permit to buy and own a gun. The government repealed the law on the 26 th. of May, 1921. I found this interesting. Of course, it was reintroduced years later as the FAC.
