Canadian refuses to register, govt tries to forfeit his house
His family has set up a webpage, here. He let it be known that he had firearms without a permit, in order to challenge the requirement. The result was that he was convicted, imprisoned for 11 days, and now the Ontario government is seeking to forfeit his house. He seeks contributions for his defense fund.
Hat tip to Don Kates, who emailed the page...
The US really needs to export the 2nd Amendment to our neighbors, and the world.

I have to wonder if maybe our recent "wins" in the SCOTUS (Heller/McDonald) might have been more valuable if they had gone the way of the dissent.
Considering the seemingly overwhelming pro RKBA legislation coming out in most states, and the impressive numbers of state AGs submitting pro RKBA amicus briefs, if the decisions had gone the other way by one vote, I think there would have been a constitutional firestorm in support of either a convention, if not a congressional introduction of an amendendment to slap down the liberals on the Court.
In a perverse sort of way, I think it might have been better to have the public go to the mat with these tyrants, and tell them what the Constitution means via the Amendment process.
Since the decisions were only 5-4, and the dissent seems to believe the decisions ought to be overturned, maybe we the people will get the chance to slap them down someday.
