Up until recently, guns had never been a huge issue for Canada. However, it is a growing concern. In Friday's paper it was reported that in BC, 2,349 guns have been stolen and 290 lost since 1999. And of these, only 99 have been recovered by police. More than 500 of these are prohibited weapons which can no longer be legally purchased in Canada. The Canadian government implemented a gun-registry to "tract" guns, but of course the registry does nothing to account for the 90% of guns used by gangs which are supposed smuggled into the country. Thus, since it's conception, much controversy has surrounded this registry. Watch 13 year old Katey's informative and humorous video below for further information.
