YOU GO, MANITOBA! The very independent western province has announced it will not prosecute gun owners for violating Canada's intrusive, useless, and insanely expensive firearms registration law.

According to CNews:

"We have been opposed to the federal government's registry scheme right from the beginning," Attorney General Gord Mackintosh said in a news release. "There is no benefit to the public in making criminals out of hunters and farmers, and it is a waste of time and resources to have provincial Crown attorneys prosecuting registration offences." Alberta and Saskatchewan have also said they won't prosecute charges under the federal law.
