Either scrap it or simplify it
The reason is Harper isn’t really interested in scrapping the long gun registry.
To rural voters, he says he’s trying his best to get rid of it. To urban voters, he says he’s not really interested in reducing control on gun owners, but if it’s the will of MPs, he can’t help the fact he’s working within the narrow confines of a minority government.
Whatever your stance on this issue, and it varies among the electorate, it’s tiring and exhausting to continually put up with the shenanigans that have been taking place over the years.
The people we elect to represent our interests in Ottawa have to gauge the views of their constituents, and vote accordingly when it comes time to take a stand.
Either scrap the long gun reg- istry once and for all, or work within the regulations and implement changes to streamline and simplify what’s become a convoluted process.
