    Do you honestly think if the person they are after has no registered restricted guns or PAL they will just walk in with guns in their holster!

    Boys never try to be logical with a Liberal you will get a headache. lol
    Your few LEO,s and CBSA family may not have done that many searches first off and I do agree most Police officers are aware firearms can be anywhere and officers will have guns drawn.

    In many cases where a search is going to executed in a home with or without warrant a SWAT team will be in the lead for entry onto the premises.

    But the advantage of the registry is that lets say a search is conducted and a registered firearm is not recovered that chances of bail for a suspect are reduced.

    A guy gets charged for domestic assault and has a 12 gu registered in his name, do you really think he, getting bail without that gun first being located and in the custody of the police.

    Any officers I worked with or trained, not a one of them through getting rid of the registry was a good idea, why would they, it makes their job more difficult.

    Therein lies the rub. My experience with us country coppers was the exact opposite. What I heard the most was "show me one crook that's dumb enough to register a firearm that can be traced directly back to themselves". Anything else was nonsense. Likewise,none of our people would ever attend even a simple trespassing complaint and not expect at some point to have a firearm involved because almost every farm,cottage or rural residence had at least one. We always governed ourselves accordingly.
    Society needs to stop bending to the will of the delusional.

    Despite that caution you say exists and I believe it does, IMHO far more rural officers in the past have been gunned down in relation to City officers?

    Society has really changed and not for the better and easy access to firearms has not helped. Even working in the worse place in the city for the longest number of years I can remember my firearms was holstered most all of the time in hundreds and hundreds of arrests. City officers today are much more aware of the probability of handguns showing up but most criminals even today will leg it even if they are armed, we still do not get many shoot outs like what is witnessed in the U.S.
