Toronto proves the statement - Registration leads to Confiscation

One always hears that gun registration is for our own good. The anti-2nd Amendment people just want to let the cops know who owns what guns, just in case, ..... you know.... if the guns are stolen and/or used in a crime.

Of course, all of this is unmitigated bull. Gun registration is the precursor to gun confiscation. Always. Every Single time. The police in Toronto are seizing guns from private citizens that have either lapsed registrations or have been banned (as if one type of gun is more dangerous than another)
"They used to be legal firearms, but now they're either unregistered or outright banned, and they're wanted by police before there's a chance burglars put them in Toronto's underground and underworld markets."

"What we believe is that legal handgun owners are not dangerous individuals, but we know from experience that their firearms can become extremely dangerous when they get into the hands of criminals," Blair said.
Of course, being registered magically protected the weapons from theft. And now, the law abiding citizens of Toronto that just lost their firearms are defenseless against those "extremely dangerous" criminals firearms.

Do we want similar laws in the United States? Do we want similar laws in Virginia? No.
Thank God for the 2nd Amendment and those that defend it.

When its time to bury your weapons, its time to dig them up.
