Gun tracing regulations delayed third time

The Harper government has once again delayed implementation of regulations that police say they need to quickly trace guns used in crimes.

The government quietly posted a notice last Tuesday — one day before the firearms marking regulations were to have come into force — disclosing that implementation has been postponed until Dec. 1, 2012.

This is the third time the Harper government has delayed the regulations, which were created by the Liberal government in 2004 and were supposed to go into effect in April of 2006.

The government has also deferred for another two years regulations governing the possession and use of firearms at gun shows.  Read More…


  1. Thank God! If it were up to all you neo-communists we’d all be begging our Liberal friends to overthrow the government and install a communist dictatorship where not only does the government tell you if you can own a gun, but how much food you’re allowed to eat, how many children you can have and when you should die for the good of all. No thanks! I’ll fight for freedom any day Commies!

  2. Canada is starting to become the next usa. How sad.

  3. I knew Harper wasn’t far behind when i read that it was delayed.

  4. We are not the US and so gun control is very important here in Canada!

  5. Why is harper and the conservatives so afraid of regulations?!?

  6. This doesnt help our enforcement one bit. The liberals should take a stand and get this thing moving pronto!

  7. And this is what you get for re-electing this bum back into office.

  8. Wow, i can’t believe this is still going on. I remember back in 2006 when this was proposed. Crazy!
