Canada Tastes Reality, Québécois Offended

Even the mad socialists finally figured out what we told them a decade ago.


Canada Ends Rifle Registry: “It don’t work, eh!”



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.”



The federal law will end the requirement for lawful gun owners to register their long guns, and it relaxes rules around selling or transferring guns. Gun licences for individuals will still be required, and the registry for restricted and prohibited firearms such as handguns will be maintained.

So what this means is that our cousins to the north now have a tiny bit of freedom, but still not very much at all. Baby steps in the right direction. But wait, there’s more. It gets better. Part of the bill demands that all the secret data that the authorities (the RCMP) have been keep on citizens and their guns will be purged. Well, the info about non-restricted firearms at any rate. That IS a blow for freedom, which is why the rabid jackbooted thug Socialist left (48% of Canadian government) is demanding that this data be preserved. Must be able to round up the citizens at 3am whenever we feel like it, don’t you dare toss this info that tells us where every single gun and round of ammunition in the country is!

Michael Patton, a spokesman for Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, said the gun registry’s central database is located in an RCMP headquarters in Ottawa. Since only data for non-restricted guns will be removed, the officials are still deciding how to carefully sift out what to delete and what to keep. He said he could not predict exactly how long the deletion of all long-gun data would take.
...
Once the bill is finally passed into law, Quebec will immediately seek an injunction from the courts to halt the destruction of the registry data.

Jeff Larivee, whose wife was killed in the 1989 Montreal massacre, is a spokesman for the Coalition for Gun Control. He said he and many other Quebecers feel outrage at the Harper government’s determination to dismantle laws that, for many, serve as a memorial.

Law as a memorial? Assuage your grief by restricting other people’s freedoms? Classic far left behavior; the world view of a 12 year old. “I’ve suffered, so now everyone else must pay.” Get your noggin to the shrink Jeff, and try and deal with your belligerence and find some closure. Stop blaming society for the acts of one murderer.

More than two billion dollars pissed away for a program that was utterly and completely worthless from the beginning. Which they knew, because we told them often enough. But it made the lefties feeeel all warm and fuzzy, and that’s what national debt is for, right? Hosers.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
