Crock Update - New Homicide Figures Released

Stats Canada reported today that homicide rates had increased for the 3rd consecutive year in a row. Of those, 65% were committed with handguns. Stabbings accounted for 33% of the remainder.

So once again I am left asking the question, just exactly what has the gun registry done to protect people from being killed by handguns. The answer - nothing.

TchTch...dontcha all know that its them evil Yanks importing guns that are doing the end run around the Registry? And Aizlynne, of course the registry is helping.Helping socialist pigs line their pockets while appeasing a few special interest groups who accomplish nothing,except get the thieves re-elected.And don't forget,they still have that ace in the hole.Remember,this is a LONG GUN registry.It has dick all to do with handguns.So they can just say lookie here, long gun deaths are down, so it is working.nevermind the fact they can't prove it,since that statistic isn't even kept.But then they just invent laws anyways.Dingbat Dongwall comes to mind.

The registry is all part of the liberal's UN / world government plan to disarm every private citizen in the world. Dont be suprised when they start coming to collect them.

And like JT says, if the libs pocket a few million along the way, they'll sleep just fine tonight.

Two birds with one stone, really.

Siphon funds to Liberal coffers to buy MSM spin and hold onto power.

To hamstring Canadians with any use of firearmes so as to provide a *docile* public citizen.

Drug dealers who carry a hand gun in the small of the back, never bother with red tape.
Gun Registry? Hey, ye gotta be kiddin' man. This here is a tool of my trade!

The gun registry will deter Canuck criminals from carrying guns, right?

Any idea how many people on health-care waiting lists could receive needed surgeries for the price of the gun registry??

Well, admittidly 2 billion isn't huge money. Which isn't excusing it, especially when it was slated to cost 3 million. 650 odd percent over budget? When you start adding it too all of the other liberal scandals over the last 12 years it really adds up.

And thats not even mentioning that the damn thing doesn't work.

But hey, apperently Lib supporters feel safer knowing that a government agency now has records of my goose gun and hunting rifle.

The Gun Registry has done nothing but suck money out of the pockets of law biding citizens.As if a criminal would ever bother to register a gun...

The fact that the bulk of homicides in this term were committed with illegally owned handguns ( unregistered), is a testiment to the pointlessness of registries...registries only list those compliant types who are not prone to criminal acts....we have had a hand gun registry for over 70 years and hand gun possession permits as well...these are far harder to obtain than long gun permits....yet we see a shift in criminal prefference to unregistered handguns...what does this tell you about Liberal logic concerning justice and crime?

The kindest I will be is to say they are dangerously dyslexic in reading criminals and dealing with them...the same goes for their sense of civil justice in criminalizing those who are least likely to act criminally ( Legal handgun owners)
