Canadian Senate Has Chewed Up C-19 And Prepares To Spit It Out

C-19 is on the order paper for the Senate for Monday, 2012-04-2.

The Legal and Constitutional Affairs committee rapidly reviewed the bill and it now goes to the whole Senate for third and final reading, debate, votes. It could be just a matter of days before the bill goes to the Governor General to make it law. Then,
“29. (1) The Commissioner of Firearms shall ensure the destruction as soon as feasible of all records in the Canadian Firearms Registry related to the registration of firearms that are neither prohibited firearms nor restricted firearms and all copies of those records under the Commissioner’s control.

(2) Each chief firearms officer shall ensure the destruction as soon as feasible of all records under their control related to the registration of firearms that are neither prohibited firearms nor restricted firearms and all copies of those records under their control.”

All this shall come into force, “31. The provisions of this Act come into force on a day or days to be fixed by order of the Governor in Council.”

Amen! Victory is in sight in the long battle to restore a bit of sanity to firearms laws in Canada. I think I shall throw a party when that happens, complete with turkey, maple-walnut ice-cream and pumpkin pie. Nothing less would do.
