Hi, Gents:
Garry's one of the few honest polictians in Canada. I wish he was my M.P., but I'm out of his riding by 12 miles. :(

There's another very interesting bit in the A.G.s report concerning the Firearms Interest Police database (FIP file). This is a dumping ground for anyone that comes to the attention of the police. People are in there just because they were witnesses to traffic accidents. Consequently some had difficulty get their firearms licenses. Just goes to show how data that's bad or in the wrong hands is a threat to our freedom. Start at the preamble to Section 11.28

I had better not start on the incredible amount of corruption in Canadian politics. :mad:

Bye

Life very funny when it comes to liberals. Our Prime minister (a liberal) had a gun buyback and confiscation system which he said he thought of BUT in reality is a copy of the Canadian System- and the cost - Buyback $537m + $70m/year over the last 7 years to maintain

GUESS THAT ADDS UP TO 1 BILLION and we are only trying to register half the number of guns

Now the stupid idiot wants to have a handgun buyback; will thay NEVER learn?

Hi, Gents:
Some late breaking good news. The Dept. of Justice came begging to Parliament for another $72 million, 2 days after the Auditor General's report. :rolleyes: Believe it or not, the Liberal backbenchers got some spine and revolted. The Minister had to pull the bill from the order paper. He'll likely re-introduce the bill, but if he doesn't get the money, it's likely the end of the long gun registry.

Eric, you're luck you got paid for your guns. Property rights were removed from the Canadian Charter of Rights, and we won't be paid for any guns the government confiscates. The Tories were in cahoots with the Liberals and Socialists on that one. Trust no one.

Now, realize that the Feds aren't buying back any guns, and they still spent over a billion $.

Bye
Jack

Jack,
Section 183 of the Australian constitution stated in part "that where the government resumes legally acquired property that fair compensation must be made"
My guess is that this clause was never meant to apply to guns. Our news is that the federal government has told the states that they must fund the handgun buyback. The states have told them to "get stuffed we got no money".
Woops!!!! another back peddle. At this rate the reverse gear on their bike will be worn out!!

The really,really,really absurd thing to me, about "buyback" programs, is the fact that YOU, the taxpayer provide the money to have the government buy something that YOU own. Gunowners are actually paying the government(through taxes) to take your guns! Again, i hope you folks can find a way to repeal these do-nothing laws.
Best of luck,
Scott

Hi, Gents:
We can be sure that more tax money will do down the drain. The Indians are suing on the grounds that licensing and registration is a violation of treaty rights. Say $50 million there, in legal fees by the time it gets to the Supreme Court. The private data processors will have cancellation causes in their contracts so that costs even if the Liberals drop it tomorrow. Etc, etc.

This caucus revolt has implications that go beyond gun control, and it's all bad news for Prime Minister Chrétien and Alan Rock. Internal Liberal politics is a bit off topic, so I'll leave it at that. The main thing is, they had us backed down to the 2 yard line and we just scored a 108 yard touchdown. (A 98 yarder in the U.S.)

Eric, it seems to me that PM Howard wants to return Australia to it's former status as a prison colony.

Bye
Jack
