OTTAWA — Proroguing Parliament earlier this year will make it easier to scrap the controversial long gun registry, says Public Safety Minister Vic Toews. Toews said Conservative MP Candice Hoeppner's bill to abolish the gun registry didn't die on the order paper as government legislation did because it is a private member's bill.

As Holly Abrams reported Tuesday, a trooper recently left his loaded 9 mm handgun in the restroom of a big box retailer, where it could have been found and used by virtually anyone. Consider that few law enforcement professionals in Indiana are as disciplined and well... (
