New Zealand says no to gun registration

The New Zealand government decides not to go forward with reintroducing gun registration. As Don Kates writes me, "in 1995 Canada undertook a $2 million effort to register all guns by 2004. As of last month the deadline for the registration had  to be extended once again w/ millions og guns unregistered -- and the total cost so far at more than a BILLION dollars. It is now estimated that roughly 40-50% of guns remain unregistered and the cost of registering them will be at least another billion dollars."
