ABSTRACT
Eight provinces, three territories, taxpayers federations, municipalities, police associations, front-line officers and many police chiefs across Canada have told the government that they do not support the long gun registry, and the appalling waste of over Canadian $1 billion taxpayer's dollars to date. The long gun registry is a blight on this government's record. The utter uselessness of the long gun registry, the reckless projections and absurd waste of taxpayer's money are a matter of public record. In fact, the federal firearms long gun registry is an affront to all lawful firearms owners
