Register Canadian gun owners

I hope the article ``Canadians Take Aim At Registering All Guns,'' Dec. 2, will be noticed by the Republicans who are about to take power in Washington.

It certainly would be in keeping with their political philosophy to make it mandatory for gun owners to register and be responsible for the cost of liability insurance for weapon ownership. Perhaps they might also be asked to pay a bullet tax to offset the cost of new prisons, now being built to house the underemployed and homeless that all too often become criminals when they are tempted to use a gun for TV-inspired illegal gain.
