We could have employed hundreds of full time RCMP officers for the entire length of their careers for the amount of money spent on this useless registry, and the results on crime would have been far more tangible

House votes in principle to kill gun registry

Conservative MPs, with the support of a few Liberals and New Democrats, have voted in principle to kill the contentious federal long gun registry.

The House erupted in cheers from the Tories as the private member's bill passed by a vote of 164 to 137.

Amen brother. Now, can we get our $2,000,000,000 back and give it to the police forces to take criminals off the streets?

For once something actually happens in Ottawa. It is interesting that 12 of the 36 NDP MPs voted with the Conservatives. That is 33.3333 percent.

I wonder how this would have turned out if he had a weapon to protect himself? Sorry I forgot this is Canada, that would have made him the criminal and the folks who broke into his home the victims. What a screwed up country we live in. Condolences to all.

There is no law that says Canadians cannot use a gun for home defense. As long as you can prove that you used no more force than necessary to preserve yourself and your family, you are covered. Canada has very vague laws in regards to defense by firearm... Statistically, we are safer than those in the US.

Please don't blame Canada for your lack of understanding it's laws, nor your cherry picking of news stories to make it sound worse than it is.

You honestly think that was cherry picking? Give your head a shake. He wasn't able to defend himself. If he had a weapon he could have and the bad guys would be DEAD. Instead you bleeding hearts will say, "lets catch the bad guys, send them to court, give them probation or suspended sentences, tell them not to do it again and put them back on the streets to KILL again." I bet you dollars to doughnuts the perpetrators of this crime will be known to police, or out on parole.

Yes, I honestly do think it was cherry picking a story to demonstrate a lack of understanding of Canada's laws.

Where in the story was it mentioned that he had no means of defense? If he had a weapon he could have? What statistics do you base this brilliant observation on? The U.S.A.? I can't help you if you didn't read anything else posted other than what you quoted... you have not understood what was said based on your above "opinion" Is it Canada's fault that the homeowner is now dead because he failed to defend himself? He could have bought a gun and had it at the ready and there is no law that says that he cannot, so now he is dead.... Why is that Canada's fault?

Take your own advise and shoot yourself in the head... err.. I mean shake your head.

Because if he had a gun and it was not registered he would have been the criminal. That was the intent of my original post. If they have broken into his home he can use resonable force to deter them. If they were not armed and he shot them he would be charged. Second point of my original post is there in no documented case of the gun registry stopping anyone from being killed in this country. Not one criminal has said to himself, "I am not going to shoot that guy because my weapon isn't registered". As I stated in my original post as well, the farmer in North Battleford, because he is a decent law abiding citizen has gone through the hoops to register his weapon and because of that we are all safe. In case you didn't figure it out, thats sarcasm.
