Canada moves a step closer to scrapping it's long gun registry.

MPs vote to abolish long-gun registry.

Conservatives argue the registry has been a billion-dollar boondoggle, although a 2006 study by the auditor general found that eliminating the long-gun portion of the registry would only save taxpayers about $3 million a year.

That's a lot of money for roughly a 50% compliance rate.
