Lefty Logic ....

Today the Government of Canada introduced a bill to scrap the long gun registry. A waste of resources and an unwarranted intrusion into the privacy of law abiding citizens.

But those who work with homicide victims disagree.

"Snowmobiles have to be registered. Our cars have to be registered. I don't see anything wrong with the gun registry at all," said Holly Kolevris from the Manitoba Organization for Victim Assistance.

If a registered gun was stolen from a home, information from the registry could help in the investigation, said Kolevris. 

Ahh ... so now it is The Caring Class who must be appeased! Because ... those who "work with victims" have a superior grasp of right and wrong?


Yes ... we register our vehicles .... but the laws that mandate the registration of vehicles ... Do Not ... empower law enforcement to invade people's homes or confiscate private property.

Neither do the laws which mandate the registration of vehicles allow for arbitrary criminalization of vehicle owners through bureaucratic fiats which allow faceless and unaccountable "public servants" to determine that one sort of vehicle is suddenly illegal and ownership of it banned.

In  the same veign the registration of a vehicle does not entail the gathering of intrusive personal information or depend on arbitrary back ground investigations by ... again ... unaccountable bureaucrats. Nor do the registrations become subject to the whims of potentially hostile people ... who for no other reason than their own whims may make unfounded accusations about what a that vehcile owner owns ... that may result in aformentioned intrusions by law enforcement and arbitrary confiscation of said privat property. 

Not to mention the resulting criminal charges that would be ... in many cases have been ... the result of such laws.

I wonder if the caring Holly would like to go through the same sort of process that gun owners go through ... when she renews her dirvers licence? Or would care to experience a random inspection and search of her private home based on a law that  mandates such excesses for vehicle ownership. 

Or maybe ... we can include other mundane things? Perhaps appliances... power tools... lawn mowers.

I wonder if  Holly and her friends are parents? Perhaps having one's children removed from her home under laws that allow this on the basis of the sort of laws she seems to like would be OK with her too?

As with seemingly all such "progressives" .... the things they like are ok ....

Well ...   CTV seems to think Holly has a point...

I know you pay tax/ fees on vehicles (everyone does).
Do you pay fees for registering snowmobiles?

Just wondering because then it's not apples and apples, it's apples and bananas.

Yes you pay regitration fees for snowmobiles and off road vehicles in Canada.

And if you want to use any public trails you must pay a trail fee.

The point however is not the fact that we are forced to pay for registration .... the point is the abuses that are imposed in the legal restrictions imposed by the LGR and the firearms act.

So, with cars and snowmobiles, it's a moneymaking deal that they have to be registered.

While in the usual Liberal way, they impose some kind of registration because they're Liberals and can use it to control you.

Apples and bananas.
