Jim Hillyer: MP Celebrates Gun Registry Vote With Finger Guns (VIDEO)

The Tory MP from Lethbridge, Alberta celebrated last month's vote to abolish the gun registry with finger guns and now the video is starting to grab attention online.

The Liberals are saying Hillyer's celebration showed a lack of respect for shooting victims, according to CJAD Radio.

The vote took place last month, but the video appeared on YouTube today, seemingly timed to coincide with the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre and the demonstrations that are marking it on Parliament Hill and elsewhere.

Hundreds gathered in Ottawa Tuesday to commemorate the the slaying of 14 women at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal 22 years ago. Many are upset about the Conservatives' move to abolish the long-gun registry. Conservative MPs were not invited to the proceedings in Ottawa.

The video appeared on the same YouTube channel which brought a video of Tory MP Rob Anders falling asleep to light in November. Anders subsequently said his sleepiness was the result of a recent car accident.
