"We have an ongoing gun crisis including firearms-related homicides lately in Toronto," Fantino said in a statement, "and a law registering firearms has neither deterred these crimes, nor helped us solve any of them."

"The firearms registry is long on philosophy and short on practical results considering the money could be more effectively used for security against terrorism as well as a host of other public safety initiatives," Fantino said.

REALLY? And what led you to this brilliant conclusion genius?

"We cannot afford, simply to save political face, to pour money into this black hole while real public safety and security needs are left wanting," he said. Auditor-General Sheila Fraser found the gun registry program had spiralled out of control and could hit $1 billion by 2005. She said she could not complete a full audit because of a lack of information made available to her officials, and Runciman said an internal audit ordered by Justice Minister Martin Cauchon is inadequate.

I can only hope that the wisdom of his words doesn't fall onto deaf ears.

Kudos to Fantino for speaking out sensibly. Now, if we can get our own bureaucrats, politicians and LE chiefs to think the same way... But what are they talking about? Ballistic fingerprinting which makes even less sense than registration. :mad:

Striker, I'm not up on Canadian politics. Has this been brewing a long time or is this a quick surface deal? Can you post a link that shows the outline of the bill, law, whatever it's called. I've spent alot of time working in Canada and know about the handgun laws but am clueless on this deal. Thanks!
