Canadian Conservative Government Aims to End Worthless Gun Registry

The new conservative government has proposed several bills, one of which aims to halt the worthless and infamous Canadian Gun Registry. According to an article from the Boston Globe, this comes at the behest of liberals in Canada that still believe the registry has some kind of positive effect against crime and doesn't trample on any legal Canadians rights. I think it's a positive step in the right direction. With the recent UN anti-gun rallies happening on July 4th (gee ... what a coincidence) in New York, it couldn't come at a better time. Here are some basic facts:

* Initial cost estimate: $119 million
* Current cose estimate: $2 billion
* Current estimated income from registry fees: $140 million
* Criminals convicted as a result of registry: 0

It's that last statistic that makes you wonder just what else they could have done with $2 billion that would have resulted in at least 1 convicted criminal ... Maybe some new equipment for the RCMP ... just about anything would have provided more than 0 arrests
