News in Review The Gun Law: Pro & Con

News in Review The Gun Law: Pro & Con

News in Review examines the problems the federal government has had implementing its gun registry. The recent revelation by the Auditor General that the program has so far cost a billion dollars has caused a political firestorm on Parliament Hill. By January 1, every gun owner should have registered their firearms, but despite the billion dollars, nobody knows for sure how successful it has been. News in Review looks back at the original debate over the need for gun control and the ongoing battle some groups are waging against the program.
