Supreme Court to rule on Quebec’s bid to keep gun registry records

The case is important for the future of gun control in Quebec. The province wants to create its own gun registry, after the Conservative government closed the federal one in 2012, and it wants to use the information collected from Quebec gun owners for the federal registry.
