Skip to comments.Obamacare Tech Firm Tried, Failed to Build Gun Registry in Canada
Posted on 10/22/2013 8:26:42 AM PDT by george76
CGI, the Canadian company whose U.S. subsidiary built the failed Obamacare website, was once contracted to build a federal gun registry for the Canadian government...
CGI's contract was canceled in 2007 after a report by the Auditor General found that the Canadian Firearms Information System (CFIS) being built by CGI was "significantly over budget" and that it had been plagued by delays.
The Conservative government that took power in 2006 canceled CGI's gun registry contract, and eventually repealed the Canadian gun registry entirely.
The failed gun registry was only one of CGI's many Canadian failures, which included canceled contracts to build health care databases in the provinces of Ontario and New Brunswick. Despite CGI's checkered record, the Obama administration awarded its U.S. subsidiary, CGI Federal, the $93.7 million contract to build healthcare.gov, part of $678 million in health care services contracts awarded to the company.
The U.S. does not have a gun registry, but one would be required, according to Breitbart News' AWR Hawkins, to implement the universal background checks that Democrats and the Obama administration tried to push through Congress earlier this year.

So not only does the website not work...but building it didn't even positively affect the U.S. economy?
There is hope for us yet.
I believe they spent something close to 10 years trying to build that gun registry, which at no time worked properly.
Actually, I think quite the reverse. If the Federal Government ever tries to implement a similar comprehensive data base and fails in that, they will unilaterally demand that the only alternative action is to confiscate the weapons they deem problematic.
This company does not seem to have ever gotten anything right, with multiple major failures...
How the hell did Obama decide to hire them? On what basis?
Here in the US, beyond depending on owners voluntarily complying with demands to provide input and comply with whatever law, the only recourse would be to have the ATF confiscate all the ATF Forms 4473 which currently is against Federal law for the government to have and hold.
I for one would never comply with an order to ‘register’ any weapon I might own. I’ll secrete, disperse and distribute before I do that.
I can see a computer system where everything is recorded about every American.
All your tax records, medical records, personal history such as which organizations you belong to, how many guns you own, your history of vehicle ownership, locations of every home you have ever had, who your relatives are, who your friends and neighbors are and where they live, where you were educated, religious preferences, how much money you have and how you spend it.
IT will be fairly simple to cross reference any record to isolate a particular segment of society.
I have been involved with two companies building software for the government. One was a pure private company, and it ended up building a system everyone said couldn’t be built. Not for free, though.
Then the system was to have a second iteration, and more government top down control. It very quickly turned out to be a pure fraud, that is, the responsible parties sucked the money (170 million or so) straight out of the till keeping a few programmers going through motions on something everyone knew would never finish.
Heard on one of the talk shows yesterday that they were bundlers for Obama.
Can you say Solyndra?
404 error for your 338 Laberdoodle.
LOL, Be careful of the element of surprise here by Obama....he starts out with a healtcare .Gov website and a gun registry website accidentally opens up and they change their direction to confiscation....
Thank you CGI for your fine work.
Of course Obama picked CGI.
They’re in Canada and the House can’t subpoena them.
When the government decides to, they’ll go to the gun shops, confiscate all of the 4473’s, and proceed to go door to door confiscating any and all weapons that they find. Why do you think the feds require that dealers keep those records? Easy local access to conquering forces, that’s why.
As a disclaimer, according to official government records, I have never owned or purchased a firearm of any kind. Just look for any 4473 with my name on it. And they will.
There is, in fact, a federal law that makes it illegal to confiscate the 4473s.....they would have to disregard that law.
Yep, anyone who has answered in the affirmative, a doctor who has asked if they own.
A good chunk of this already exists, particularly if it is considered information available under the FOIA. Went on-line to see what was out there under my name and found all my addresses since 1960, every place I had ever worked, information on my marriage, divorce, children’s names and dates of birth, picture of my current vehicle with insurance information and mileage. For a few more dollars I could also have checked to see if I had had any recorded arrests or convictions. There were also some early 1940 census reports which had the name, addresses and social security numbers of my bio father, grandparents, aunts and uncles.
