ABSTRACT
The article focuses on why decline in "gun deaths" cannot justify gun registry. The Canadian government have spent an estimated $2 billion on gun registry. The government has advanced primarily two arguments to defend this bureaucratic exercise: "gun deaths" have declined over the past decade and the gun registry is effective in screening out potentially dangerous firearms owners. Gun laws are supposed to stop gun misuse, so an obvious measure of success would be a drop in "gun deaths." However, it is a fallacy to imagine that a reduction in "gun deaths" means that any lives have been saved.
