Quote of the day—John R. Lott Jr. & Gary Mauser

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Chiefs of Police have not yet provided a single example in which tracing was of more than peripheral importance in solving a case.
The problem isn’t just with the long-gun registry. The data provided above cover all guns, including handguns. There is no evidence that, since the handgun registry was started in 1934, it has been important in solving a single homicide.

Death of a Long-Gun Registry
[H/T David Hardy.

Don’t ever forget the story of the Belgium Corporal. The only thing a gun registry is good for is confiscation.

When someone suggests gun registration is a good thing you know they are ignorant, stupid, and/or evil. You should determine which and deal with them appropriately.—Joe]

  1. “…the handgun registry was started in 1934…”
    1934….1934…why do I recall that date? Oh yeah. It seems a lot of the insanity that currently afflicts our society was spreading worldwide like wildfire in the 1930s. It is still very much with us.

  2. Anybody else remember in the movie Red Dawn with the Russian dude tells someone to head over to the Sheriff’s office and collect all the 4473’s so they can find out where all the guns are?

    Yeah, me either.
