Michael Ignatieff's Liberal Proposal to Decriminalize the Long-Gun Registry will help farmers and hunters.
Ignatieff's proposal to make first-time persons charged with possession of an unregistered firearm simply a summary non-criminal offence is not new. When Bill C-68 was brought forward by Allan Rock in 1995 the Canadian Police Association refused to support the bill without such a provision. Thus, Section 112 was entered into the Firearms Act, making it a "summary offence" to possess an unregistered firearm.
Canadians have been fighting this long standing battle on the issue of long-gun registry for a while.
Protection of oneself and one's property can often be reason enough to advocate the ownership of guns.
To improve the security and make residents feel safe in their own homes, many complexes and apartments have installed high end security devices, video cameras and other such state of the art equipment.
543 Queenston Road, Hamilton, Ontario is one such apartment complex that employs some state of the art security for its residents. For those who don't need a gun to man their house, should definitely try to look at such residential options.
