Down here the AWB looks like it’s going to sunset with a whimper, and now Canada is considering decriminalizing it’s registration law?
It’s not a repeal, but…
If you’re curious, here’s a short history of Canada’s C-68 Firearms Act. Note the 5,000% cost overrun. Actually, if the Feb. 13th update is accurate, it’s a 10,000% cost overrun. That’s two billion dollars, not one. There has been a lot of comment on the fact that it’s nearly impossible to determine just how high the costs have actually been, and a lot of anger over how the government has been hiding it.
Edited to add: And I strongly recommend this op-ed, The gun registry: A billion dollar bag of perfect uselessness. Couldn’t say it better myself.
