Tuesday, 11 August 2015 06:25

Since the last federal election, our community has seen several wins:

  • Long Registry - repealed
  • Bill C-42 Common Sense Firearms Licensing Act
  • Implementation of Government ability to over rule RCMP classification of firearms

We need to keep the moment going.

Our advice - If you won't vote for the party that already understands the need for decriminalizing our firearms community - then please, take it upon yourself to ensure that the individual of your choice clearly understands the difference between our Sporting and Hunting Community and criminals.

The Long-Gun Registry: Costs and Crime Statistics PDF Print E-mail

Costs

  • In 1995, the previous government told Parliament that the firearms program, most specifically the long-gun registry, would involve a net cost of just $2 million (Auditor General's Report 2002, Chapter 10).
  • In May 2000, the previous government admitted that the costs had actually ballooned to at least $327 million (Auditor General's Report 2002, Chapter 10).
  • By March 2005 the net cost of the firearms program was $946 million and by summer of 2006, costs had exceeded $1 billion. The Auditor General stated that Parliament was misinformed about many of these costs. (Auditor General's Report 2006, Chapter 4).
  • Neither the costs incurred by provincial and territorial agencies in enforcing the legislation, nor the costs borne by Firearms owners and businesses to comply with the legislation have been calculated. (Auditor General's Report 2002, Chapter 10).
  • Two Library of Parliament studies estimate that the enforcement and compliance costs are substantial, running into hundreds of millions of dollars. (Compliance Costs of Firearms Registration, 10 October 2003; and, Estimates of Some of the Costs of Enforcing the Firearms Act, 20 March 2003).

Crime Statistics

  • There are nearly 7 million registered long-guns in Canada. Yet of 2,441 homicides recorded in Canada since mandatory long-gun registration was introduced in 2003, fewer than 2 percent (47) were committed with rifles and shotguns known to have been registered. (Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics).
  • Illegal smuggling by organized crime is by far the principal source of firearms on our streets. Indeed, the Vancouver police report that 97 percent of firearms seized in 2003 were illegal guns smuggled in from the United States, usually by organized crime (Vancouver Police, Strategic Plan 2004-08).

Fire these gun registry turncoats PDF Print E-mail

Back when the national gun registry was saved from demise, a turncoat's dozen of 14 MPs -- eight Liberals and six NDPers -- turned their back on their constituencies by flip-flopping on their original vote to see the registry scrapped.

We promised, back then, to remind you of who they are.

And today we're doing just that.

The turncoats in the Liberal camp, all who tossed principle into the dumpster over a self-serving fear of being kicked out of their precious seat in caucus, include Anthony Rota (Northern Ontario), Jean-Claude D'Amours (New Brunswick), Larry Bagnell (Yukon), Scott Andrews (Newfoundland), Scott Simms (Newfoundland), Todd Russell (Labrador), Wayne Easter (P.E.I.).

Keith Martin, a former Reform MP who already skewered grassroots conservatism by reincarnating to the Liberals, is wisely not seeking re-election on Vancouver Island.
