The CBC has learned that the NRA has been involved in the fight to abolish the gun registry for decades! This reminds me of something Kory Teneycke said on Power and Politics.
I wonder if Kory Teneycke is now telling the NRA to stay in the US and get their facts straight? Either way, the NRA has nothing to do with Canada. Why is it messing around in our politics? In fact, the only reason why the NRA hasn't spent money in Canada is because its constitution doesn't allow it. That hasn't stopped it from putting on an $100 000 infomercial on national TV in America. we have enough problems as is with right-wing propaganda seeping into Canada (SunTV). We do not need the NRA added to the list of problems. The NRA should get out of Canada. It has no place in our society.
