Another victory for freedom

(Via the Captain's Quarters)

Well, it seems our neighbors to the north have realized that their billion dollar (Canadian, I suppose) gun registration scheme isn't working, will never work and is actually causing more crime than it solved (and no, I'm not talking about all those intelligent folks who told their government to take a hike and refused to register their guns).

And apparently, they're going to have more to be angry about than just the fact it didn't work:

Canadians will be shocked by the true cost of the federal government's ill-fated gun registry, says new Public Security Minister Stockwell Day.

As an old, old friend of mine used to say, "Better to be pissed off than pissed on." Seeing which end of the stream Canadian gun owners have been on for the last few years, I'd say get cleaned up and get angry--then make 'em pay for what they've done to you.

(Read the Captain's thoughts on the subject here.)
