Another Expensive Exercise in Futility

Last week it was reported in several places that Canada’s attempt at registering all long guns and all gun owners – originally sold to Parliament and the people of Canada as having a net cost to taxpayers of $2 million – would reach a cost of $1 billion a full year earlier than the Auditor General predicted after she reviewed the fiscal debacle last year.

Now in that gun-control Utopia of England – where all legal guns and gun owners are registered and licensed, and all machine-guns, “assault weapons,” and handguns are bannedthey’re going to spend £1.1 million (about $1.9 million) to build a “National Firearms Forensic Intelligence Database” so that the police can “speed up the way officers can link gun crimes.”

At least that’s the initial estimate.
