From the opening of his Op-Ed in today's National Post:
When the national long-gun registry was introduced 14 years ago, I believed it would help keep Canadians safe.
From Hansard Tuesday, June 13th, the day Bill C-68 (which established Canada's gun registry) became law:
This bill is going to be a horrendous cost. I wonder if the hon. member would rather spend the money on crisis centres or counselling for families at risk, rather than on this legislation? Would it not make more sense? We are running further and further into debt. I do not think we need more legislation like this.
The same government that is giving criminals more rights than victims is also bringing us legislation that will put a heavy burden on law-abiding gun owners rather than criminals. I cannot see how we can accept that.
...which is to say that the Op-Ed piece is lies from the word go.
