We generally stick to news in the states but it’s important to recognize the right of self-defense is universal. Our Canadian brothers had an outrageously overbudget and totally ineffective long gun registry implemented in 2001.

Last night, Canada’s Conservative Party has won a crushing victory over the various liberal parties–and the slaying of the long gun registry looks in the cards.
Canadian voters have radically redrawn the country’s political landscape, handing the Conservative Party its long-sought majority in an election that decimated the Bloc Québécois and humbled the Liberals.
For the first time in history, the New Democratic Party will form the Official Opposition after an extraordinary breakthrough that propelled the party to more than 100 seats.
