The Canadian long gun registry has been scrapped, and the data base for all Canada, except for Quebec, is in the process of being deleted, Quebec to soon follow. After squandering $2 billion, this has proven what a complete waste of time , money and effort the concept of registering all the guns in a huge , mostly rural country is, and can be pointed to as an example to other such proposals in other countries. There is no way they can promise to resurrect it with any real credibility to claims it a can actually work. It will simply, inevitably, lead to the same result.
