Toronto Shooting Spree Not Stopped by Registry

Students at George Brown College in Toronto expressed fear this morning after two women were shot near the downtown campus last night. Both attacks appear to have been random. Neither of the victims were were killed.

The question is, why did the gun registry not prevent these attack? The liberals passed a bill that requires gun owners to register their guns back in 1998! That was seven years ago. Canadians have paid well over $2 billion for that registry, in spite of the liberal promise that it would cost only $85 million! Yet the registry has been utterly useless at reducing gun crime.

In fact, gun crime is up 21% since the registry was put in place. Of that number, 60% of gun crimes involve hand guns, which Canada has been registering since 1930.

Now that we have proven that the gun registry was a waste of money, can we please have our money back?
