Yeah, it seems for every step forward we take, we have to take another back.

I think if people keep up the pressure, they'll crack on the internet bill though - it appears that the party (Vic Toews aside) is starting to bend. I think (hope?) they realize that a large segment of their supporters are just as opposed to that one as the opposition.

As a person who doesn't really like guns (especially guns in a household) I am not very pleased with these news.

I'm curious - what specifically about the decision to end the registry do you feel is bad?

I'm curious about that as well.

The registry did nothing to prohibit or limit FAC's, so anyone wanting a weapon in the home could still have one. All it did was enter that weapon into a database of ownership listings.

I'm glad it's gone so that the tax money going to support it can now be put to far better use.

The people have spoken. Removal of this law is democracy in action and good for the country.

We should never treat innocent people like criminals.
