The federal Liberals and NDP are joining Quebec in demanding the salvage of gun registry data, yet history has shown this data to be outdated, unreliable and potentially dangerous to Canada’s gun owners.
Registry supporters have been unable to definitively link this information to a decades-long decline in gun deaths nor have police bureaucrats been able to cite any cases where the data was critical in preventing or solving a crime.
Conversely, we have seen proof that this data could very well be used by organized crime.
RCMP computers and the registry have been breached and gang members have managed to obtain information through accomplices working within the government. This has been used to target rival gang members and a member of the Montreal press.
Who knows how many armed home invasions have been or will be committed against law-abiding gun owners because of this.
Quebecers at large – not just Quebec’s gun owners – should be very, very worried.
