I Have to Hand it to the Tories

They are serious about getting rid of Canada’s long gun registry, and are setting up to make it an election issue. Canada’s media is getting into the fight too. The Globe and Mail argues that the registry has been a waste of money, that’s cost way more than it was predicted. National Post is editorializing against it for similar reasons, but its intrusiveness to gun owners and ineffectiveness at fighting crime receive top billing. Are we seeing the emergence of a gun rights insurgency in Canada? I hope so. But if the Tories set this up as an election issue, that will probably depend largely on how well that works out for them.
