On the day the Long gun Registry goes to a vote, it seems the good guys really have the cards stacked against them now.
The Ottawa SUN reported this morning that the Liberal Party’s women’s caucus, Status of Women critics and women’s shelter groups’ movement are now pushing to keep the Registry.
And everyone knows once you get powerful groups like these working against you, you’re in big trouble.
What still baffles me with all this is how people continue to support something with such little proven merit.
The womens’ groups say that, without the registry, many people — particularly women — will die.
But will they really?
As one informed reader of this Blog McDan put so perfectly:
“It’s hard to believe people can describe how little gun registry actually does, but they’re willing to pay millions for it!”
I’m as confused as you are McDan, and I predict after this big vote is over, the majority of Canadians will be as dumbfounded as we are.
