Another Election Tripwire?

Courtesy of Kady O'Malley, comes the news that the government is re-introducing legislation to kill the long-gun registry. No word over whether they will treat its defeat as a motion of non-confidence, but to my recollection, this bill has no support from any of the other parties. The only question I can come up with is why do the Tories think falling on such a bill is their ticket to majority government?

Update: The Tories obviously don't see this as a ticket to majority government, as Mr. "I can take a punch" has not made this bill a matter of confidence.

  1. From what I can tell, this is in the same category as their motion on SSM last year: an attempt to send a signal to the right-wing base with no desire to actually change current policy in the process.
