President of the Port Clements Rod and Gun Club, Ron Haralson, was cautiously pleased to here of the recent passing of the bill in the House of Commons to end the long-gun registry.”It’s not gone yet,” he said, “but it’s safe to say that it’s going to be. Hopefully it will be through the senate by the end of this month.”Mr. Haralson said some people are concerned that the information already collected will be destroyed. “I don’t know where some people come from,’ he said, “if you’re going to scrap it, the information has to go.”Mr. Haralson explained that the registry effects everyone in the rod and gun club, as people are currently supposed to take their registration certificates when they take out their rifles, even just to go to the range. He says they could possibly have the weapons seized by police if they don’t comply.”I will be delighted when the registry is gone,” he said, “we will all be very will rid of it, it’s done no good at all.”
