Ted Menzies Announces Destruction of Long-Gun Registry Records
October 31, 2012
OTTAWA, ON – Today, the Honourable Ted Menzies, MP for Macleod and Minister of State (Finance), reiterated that as of October 31, 2012, the long-gun registry, with the exception of registry information related to Quebec, has been destroyed.
“The deletion of the long-gun registry records marks a significant milestone in this Government’s commitment to eliminating the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry,” said Menzies. “Promise made, promise kept.”
Law-abiding gun owners will no longer be unfairly targeted, our Government will continue to focus its efforts on more effective measures to tackle crime and protect families and communities.
The deletion of data in the registry related to long-guns follows the Royal Assent of Bill C-19, the Ending of the Long-Gun Registry Act, on April 5, 2012.
“Our Government is making our streets and communities safer by targeting criminals who use firearms, not law-abiding Canadians. Now that the data have been deleted, they can never be recovered."
