The paper addresses the failing and financially disastrous gun control legislation and act that has been present in Canada for the past decade. The writer focuses on three failed aspects of this legislation: that it is financially over-budget; that it is targeting the wrong individuals; and that it has not been understood or embraced by either federal or provincial governments and leadership. The writer further argues that a different system must be studied and implemented for Canada to have the proper gun control that it long has boasted.

From the Paper:

"In its attempt to control guns, mirroring attempts in much the same way as its neighbor to the south, Canada has largely failed. While there has long been a history of support for stricter gun control in Canada than in the United States, such efforts have usually proven successful, or at least not as outrageous as recent developments. And while these recent actions and plans have affected crime and violence in a somewhat successful manner, the reason that they have failed is threefold. The current system of gun control can be considered inadequate and appalling because it has been a financial disaster, it has regularly targeted the wrong individuals with its restrictions, and it has been enacted without the full knowledge and/or cooperation of both the national government and the provincial governments."
