Canada, Straightening out your gun laws, eh?

Today, Stockwell Day, Canada's Public Safety Minister, is expected to announce an amnesty of gun registration for rifles and shotguns! This is at least a step to straighten out. Since 1997 there has been a mandatory registration of all guns. This has had much opposition from the ranchers and farmers in western Canada, and now finally with the Conservatives running a minority Government, there will finally be a try to start changing it. If it manages to make it through, it will not require any long guns to be registered. Handguns will still need to be registered, but this is still moving in the right direction.
