Canada's long gun registry fades out
$2.5 billion spent to no effect. "The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Chiefs of Police have not yet provided a single example in which tracing was of more than peripheral importance in solving a case. The problem isn’t just with the long-gun registry. The data provided above cover all guns, including handguns. There is no evidence that, since the handgun registry was started in 1934, it has been important in solving a single homicide."
Just in time for Rahm Emanuel to propose Statewide registration for Illinois.
