I lean heavily towards the latter.
There IS a huge difference between licensing and registration. Wendy Cukier of the Coalition for Gun Control IS FULLY AWARE of that. She picks her words to intentionally mislead the public.
The Editor above only furthers the misinformation of the public by publishing that tripe.
Licensing – screens the applicants for the license to BUY and POSSESS firearms. That is the public safety component that Bill C-391 does nothing to change.
Registration – Wastes money and resources and has DONE NOTHING to make anyone safer. Bill C-391 will eliminate the Long-gun Registry and free up millions of dollars to be put into things that are effective and considerably more efficient.
