@Nathan- Personally I have no problem with a registry (handguns/carbines) that makes sense, not going to argue with that as they do pose a greater threat than a guy wielding a shotgun/rifle with a 20" barrel. However, what the guy didn't mention is that the long-gun registry only applies to rifles/shotguns with a barrel length over 16inches (if memory serves me right), meaning a rifle/shotgun with a barrel length under 16inches NEEDS to be registered whereas one over the 16" limit (18") don't need to be registered and in fact to purchase one all you need is your FAC (Firearms Acquisition Certificate). Yet under the system we have rifles/shotguns/carbines of 16" you need to have the Restricted Firearms permit to own them (same with owning handguns). People get up in arms over things that logically make sense. It is a state of denial to think that the government doesn't already know what weapons you own whether or not it's in a national registry; if it's legally purchased they know of it via bill of sale. The problem that I find with the American gun owners is that they simply do not fully comprehend or understand these changes in laws and legislation, the way they see it is "the government is taking my guns away" no that is wrong they are keeping a record of firearms just like vehicles/houses/property etc, just like everything else in our capitalistic society. Not saying I fully agree with the way they are going about things.
Also since the removal of the long-gun registry a few new laws have been implemented that actually secure the rights of gun owners even more. Even though by law we are considered to be criminals we are not subject to unlawful search or confiscation without a CFO (Chief Firearms Officer) present or an approved application of firearms confiscation from the courts. Basically meaning no hot shot or c*nt cop can come in my house and take my sh*t. If you know the laws they actually work in our favor, we are more secure with them than without them. What the US really needs is a system like ours... yes it is far more restrictive, can't have suppressors, full-auto or mags with a capacity over 10 (certain calibers is maxed at 5 example 7.62) but we have more protection from being prosecuted and aren't subject to harassment unless you've actually done something. Down side, if any criminal action is held against you whether you're the antagonist or victim you can be subject to seizure of your firearms and the RCMP being the c*nts they are will probably apply for an application to revoke your FAC.
Like all things there are positives and negatives to the system but if you look at it from the big picture and not a prejudice view it makes sense and is quite fair.
Nathan, the Canadian gun laws are something you should definitely read into. A lot of it will make you go what the f*ck but some points will make you think.
