Never reword something that someone else has already said better:

We’ve always known that gun control fanatics, despite their protestations to the contrary, are utterly without regard for the rights of those they oppose or even the law itself.  Now, the Canadian National Firearms Association has learned just how low some of them, in this case the Canadian Association of Police Chiefs (CAPC), are willing to go.

In the torrid game of political chess that is poised to scrap Canada’s long-gun registry, some players appear willing to sacrifice ethical principles to win.

The kings, knights and rooks are quick to push their pawns to the middle of the board to demonstrate faux teamwork, but many of those pawns are unwilling accomplices. The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP), the Canadian Police Association, and the Canadian Association of Police Boards want to maintain the long-gun registry.

But, many front-line police officers have pronounced it useless and potentially dangerous to any cop who believes the data. A national survey taken by an Edmonton police officer last year shows an astounding 92 percent of police respondents want the registry scrapped. Continue reading »

The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police currently support the firearms registry.  They say it is a necessary tool in the fight against crime and the safety of the public and police officers.

For the past month, I have been gathering comments and concerns of police officers across Canada as it relates to the registry and its usefulness.  Being a policeman myself, the CACP position on the Firearms registry has always bothered me as it is not a reflection of police opinion but that of a select group.  And I believe they are wrong.

My question to my fellow officers was fairly simple:  Do you support the firearms registry?

I have been fortunate to have had hundreds of police officers contact me in regards to this matter.  As of this morning, I have 521 responses from across Canada.  Of these responses, 7 approve of the registry.   514 say it is useless and should be scrapped.

I expected that. Continue reading »
