Missing guns and laptops

  1. OK I can't make too much fun of the Americans for losing 800 gov't guns. It appears we Canadians managed to misplace 200 passports! We let the terrorists in, you arm them.

    This isn't an easy task

    Good point, taras.

    Obviously the problem isn't as simple as it sounds. I don't believe either country intentinally screws up like this. Just sloppy recordkeeping and poor controls in place.

    With the U.S.'s nearly 300 million population and Canada's (? don't know how many) population, and a high percentage of them traveling and moving around regularly, keeping track of and finding terrorists is a bigger problem than it sounds on the surface.

    The same goes for gun's getting into the hands of terrorists, too. There's a fine line between having too many controls and allowing 2nd amendment rights to be abused. This isn't an easy task.
