This speaks volumes. While the rabidly liberal mayor of the city of Chicago is calling for more gun control (see "Emanuel proposes statewide gun registry"), the Canadian government is abandoning its registry all together.
As Canadian Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said: "It does nothing to help put an end to gun crimes, nor has it saved one Canadian life."
I'm inclined to suggest that someone get that message to the clueless mayor of Chicago. Gun registries do nothing to save lives.
But then he knows that.
He also knows that he has no cure for his city's crime ills. Thus the misdirection.
Anyway, the Canadians learned a valuable lesson. Maybe sometime in the distant future America's Democrats will learn it as well.
