An RCMP evaluation report of Canada's long-gun registry concludes that the program is cost effective, efficient and an important tool for law enforcement.Now, what's so hard about that? Does it take official reports to conclude that "It also serves to increase accountability of firearm owners for their firearms." I've been saying that right along.
One section of the report states: "The program, as a whole, is an important tool for law enforcement. It also serves to increase accountability of firearm owners for their firearms."
The report found that the cost of the program is in the range of $1.1 million to $3.6 million per year and that the Canadian Firearms Program is operating efficiently.
“Overall the program is cost effective in reducing firearms related crime and promoting public safety through universal licensing of firearm owners and registration of firearms," the report states.
Wouldn't it be useful for law enforcement personnel to know what guns are involved prior to entering a domestic disturbance scene or approaching a pulled-over driver?
