It must be eating him up inside...

...but Jack Layton is gonna let the chips fall where they may...
jack outta the box

His refusal to whip his caucus, as Michael Ignatieff has done with the Liberals, virtually assures the motion will fail and Bill C-391, which was introduced by Tory MP Candice Hoeppner to end the long-gun registry, will succeed.
Gotta confess, I didn't think ol' Jacko had it in him.

Of course, the decision isn't entirely based on principle... the NDP stood to lose a whack of rural MPs.

THE FARMER BOB RIFLE REGISTRY REVEALED:
Me: “Hello, I’m not a criminal so I have to report to you that I’ve moved.”

Constable on duty: “Huh?”

Me: “I legally own a rifle so I have to report to you that I’ve moved.”

Constable on duty: “Who said you have to do this?”

Me: “Your boss Chief Jack Ewatsky and Prime Minister Chretien.”

Constable on duty: “Well, I… uh are you sure?”
Can we have our 2 billion dollars back now?

LAST WORD: The Dipper Dilemma
Charlie Angus, a New Democrat from Northern Ontario, has voted in favour of Ms. Hoeppner’s bill – and he is no fan of the gun registry.

He tells the story of an 84-year-old widow who wanted to register her dead husband’s firearm and was told she would first have to get a licence, after taking a course in how to use it, even though she never planned to fire the weapon.

You should say 'please' when asking for our money back. The socialists respond better to requests when those six letters are used in that exact order.

It's amusing just how many people don't know, or like Liberals refuse to know, just where the registry fits into the adscam portfolio.

Just about the entire thing had pork written all over it, including the various policing associations using it for a slish fund.

Time to shut this icon of 'failed liberal ideology' down for ever.

yup... how many tens (or hundreds) of millions went to liberal-friendly corporate consultants to set up this wasteful, unnecessary p.r. boondoggle?

2 billion$$ gun registry doesn't work but a 7 million$$ system the farmers have can trace a cow back to the pen it was born in.... Now should we be given a cow for every gun we own or is one cow good for several guns??

the federal government has had a national registry for handguns since the 1930s.

and it was working as well as could be possibly expected... note: criminals typically are a little bit shy about registering stolen & smuggled guns... and then the fiberals, in a misguided publicity stunt... decided they had to go after farmers, duck hunters & skeet shooters as well.

2 billion taxpayer dollars down the toilet later... it's time to drive a stake through this monster's heart.

"Looks like neo the gun nut doesn't like the truth. I'm sure if we repealed all gun laws he would feel so much safer, then he could shoot me with his bazooka from a mile away."

I think 2% of all weapons used in crimes are registered.

The murder rate with firearms is up something like 24% since the registry was introduced.

Just a waste of money.

Tnx for the link.

Jack needs a mission and I have one for him. He needs to clean up China Town in Toronto, err how many are there now? All those exploited potential NDP voters working for cash and not in unions and being taken advantage of by the man. We need Olivia to get pounding on doors and Jack talking about the poor immigrants being used in the HOC! (real conservative)
