The gun registry has been saved

It’s official: the long gun registry has survived Bill C-391, which was defeated this evening by a vote of 153 to 151.

It’s a noteworthy victory that caps off an interesting political moment, to say the least. The tension and the emotion on both sides of the debate have been palpable, and that’s especially remarkable for an issue that a lot of us had barely heard about just a few weeks ago.

Where we go from here is difficult to say. But tonight’s vote is a victory worth celebrating, and the great many people across the country who played a part in making it happen deserve our thanks.
