Feds say they have no clue if registered or unregistered firearms are used in homicides - or any other crime

'Statistics Canada is unable to provide a definitive answer on the exact number of homicides committed with registered firearms versus unregistered firearms.'

An order paper question posed by Alberta Conservative MP demonstrated the Liberals have no desire to collect data to support the measures included in Bill C71, which include a point-of-sale collection of ownership records on firearms by sellers. 

Stubbs asked:

Regarding firearms and crime statistics held by the government, broken down by year since 2009, how many fatal shootings, excluding suicides, in Canada were from (i) legally, (ii) illegally or improperly registered firearms; how many legally registered firearms were being operated by someone with a legal firearms licence, and how many illegal or improperly registered firearms were being operated by someone with a legal firearms licence? 

In response, the feds admitted they do not track the status of the firearm used in the commission of an offence.  

"Statistics Canada has limited information on the registration status of recovered firearms that are used in homicides. Statistics Canada is unable to provide a definitive answer on the exact number of homicides committed with registered firearms versus unregistered firearms. Statistics Canada does not have data on the legal registration status of firearms used outside of homicides."

Liberals have reintroduced a backdoor firearms registry under the guise it would reduce crime.
