Those of us who have called for an end to the long gun registry have often focused on its cost at least $2 billion and its uselessness in stopping crime. But the greatest damage done by Bill C 68 has been the wedge it has driven between police and law abiding Canadians who own guns for hunting, sport shooting or vermin control on farms.

The really pathetic thing is that you have a situation where these left wing bureaucrats, like the NDP, who reside in Toronto and other large cities, end up having legislation past that effects ALL of Canadians rather than just the people living in these large urban centres. It's sickening.

They should ban all guns in Canada, U.S and Mexico. Law abiding citizens shouldn't be armed only criminals and government workers need guns.

You know... I'm the Parent of a Murdered child...
I know the horror of swimming in my sons blood, listening to his screams, laying there next to him as his life slipped away, lying to him "Everything going to be okay buddy, just hang in there!" Praying for help that never came....
If I had been armed that day I wouldn't have blinked twice, my son might still be alive....
to you I say... it must be nice to live in your fantasy world... Me... I'll keep my CCP and protect what's left of my family...edit on 12-5-2011 by DaddyBare because: (no reason given)

I feel like what you wrote is a perfect representation of the general mentality of almost all Canadians in southwestern Ontario at least, and probably in many of the urban centres in the other provinces.
But... it's just not a reality. Respectfully, have you ever fired any type of gun yourself? If so, how did that make you feel? If not, have you ever even handled a firearm before in your life?
Some civilians need guns, period. It doesn't have to be about protection at all, basically every farmer with a barn needs a gun for pest control, to start.
