I and many others got on the phone and email to MPs and MPPs, and said (essentially) "What fresh hell is THIS? Did you people kill this thing or not?"
Well, today the CPC regime fired a round across McGuinty's bow.
Vic Toews also sent a letter.
RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson reminded the firearms officer in a letter this week that the passage of the Ending the Long-Gun Registry Act leaves no doubt about Parliament's intention to stop that type of compilation of information about gun owners.
"I instruct all chief firearms officers to ensure that the licensing conditions you impose on business records pursuant to the Firearms Act do not facilitate the creation of long-gun registries in your jurisdictions," Mr. Paulson wrote.
Mr. Toews sent a letter sent Tuesday to all provincial chief firearms officers, saying the collection of point-of-sale data is no longer authorized under the Firearms Act.And that my friends is called Action. In and of itself it isn't much, but I'm actually kind of surprised in a pleasant way that the CPC acted this quickly and publicly. It means they HEARD from y'all, and they are moving on it. If they keep on hearing about it they will keep on moving.
He asked the RCMP to notify him "immediately" if they hear of chief firearms officers engaged in "unauthorized data collection."
I for one am not going to shut up.
