In­ci­dent shows ludicrous na­ture of gun reg­istry

The Southwest Booster - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Greg Illerbrun Saskatchew­an Wildlife Fed­er­a­tion Firearms Chair

Edi­tor: I’m sure most peo­ple have heard about the 10year-old that was ab­ducted in Al­berta last week. The per­pe­tra­tor, a known pe­dophile, was stopped for speed­ing dur­ing his get­away. The RCMP of­fi­cer is­sued him a speed­ing ticket and let him and the youth go.

I’m sure you are all com­forted to know that while he was stopped, the po­lice did an au­to­matic check to see if he was a legal firearm owner, of course it came back neg­a­tive as a pe­dophile would never get a firearms li­cense. That’s the beauty of our now two bil­lion dol­lar Lib­eral Gun Con­trol scheme; it only tracks the peo­ple who have al­ready deemed to be no threat to so­ci­ety.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to track the known crim­i­nals, have a sex of­fender reg­istry and have the po­lice com­put­ers do an au­to­matic scan for that? I guess I must have been in a dif­fer­ent line up when they handed out the com­mon sense brain cells! Why the Chiefs of Po­lice and the op­po­si­tion par­ties con­tinue to sup­port this ludicrous scheme with our tax dol­lars is be­yond me. If you agree, let your MP know how you feel.
