Gift to the Gun Lobby

Canadian police officers use the Gun Registry over 5000 times a day.

The last seven murders of police officers in Canada were with rifles. Owners of rifles just became exempt from the Registry's oversight.

I'm angry at the Conservatives for turning their back on their faux law and order rhetoric, removing the weapon responsible for the deaths of so many police officers including so tragically and recently here in Alberta.

I'm furious at the Liberals for the mismanagement and malfeasance that gave the Conservatives the cover they thought they had here - though I believe they may have misjudged the Canadian public on this issue.

The Gun Registry needed to be fixed not killed.
