CP misses a few things 
(en francais)

Here we go again. CP story posted on Canada.com - missing the detail that it's the long-gun registry that the government is moving on. They seem to have the same sort of mental block that Canwest News Service has regarding this topic.
Government set to begin dismantling gun registry

Police consult the firearms databank about 5,000 times a day.
CTV News:
Tories will deregister long guns, shotguns
Globe and Mail:
Long-gun registry to be axed
Toronto Star:
Showdown looming over gun registry
The Star headline is misleading, but at least the story correctly identifies the long-gun registry as the target.

Another question I've often asked and researched but have never been able to find an answer. You see figures everywhere from 2000 to 5000 quoted for how often each day the registry is consulted.

We never hear what the accuracy rate is. 5000 is such a nice sounding number but what if it's only 60% accurate?
