TORONTO SUN – THE RCMP PLAY FAST AND LOOSE WITH GUN REGISTRY – What is on the hard drive the Liberals intend to give the Quebec government may well include names and other records for gun owners outside Quebec, too.

EXCERPT: The Mounties were, in a way, stuck in the middle of these opposing forces. And I feel sorry for them for being pressured to walk on a knife’s edge, if not for one thing – the High River, Alberta gun grab in 2013. Following devastating spring floods in that southern Alberta community in June 2013, Mounties kicked in hundreds of doors – without warrants – searching high and low for guns. They insisted they were looking only for survivors and only took guns that were in plain sight. But it was clear they rummaged through underwear drawers and refrigerators, in locked safes and behind furnaces – places that were far too small to be harbouring flood victims. In many cases, Mounties went directly to homes of registered gun owners, looked only for listed guns, then returned to headquarters. If they had, as ordered, destroyed all the registry data in October 2012, how could they identify owners in June 2013 unless they’d made copies or squirreled away data on other computers.

APRIL 1, 2014 – CANADA FREE PRESS – PRAY THE RCMP DON’T LOOK AFTER YOUR TOWN IN A STATE OF EMERGENCY – EXCERPT: Having secured their home again, Don White went to the RCMP detachment in High River to pick up his long guns, where the RCMP officer informed him that that two of his long-guns weren’t registered. Don responded, “That’s right, the two new shotguns we just bought!” The only possible way the RCMP Constable knew that two of his long-guns weren’t registered is if he had access to a copy of the old long-gun registry listing of their guns – a listing that was supposed to be completely destroyed in accordance with an Act of Parliament, Bill C-19, Ending of the Long-gun Registry Act, proclaimed into law on April 12, 2012.
