    After all this time, there's still no clear evidence the long gun registry has stemmed gun related crimes. The only certainty is that the registry has cost taxpayers at least $2 billion an astronomical figure given that the Liberals promised the registry would only cost an initial $2 million in start up spending.In a damning report in 2002, federal Auditor General Sheila Fraser found that program was not only costly, but excessively regulatory, overly complex and difficult for owners to comply with.

    Oh I am so keeping my fingers crossed that it does get dumped. Being a CO I have seen no evidence that it has done any good! A big waste of money!
