On Sept. 22, 1010, MPs voted to save the long-gun registry, with enough New Democrat MPs voting with the Liberals and Bloc Québécois to scrap a Conservative private member's bill aimed at killing the 15-year-old federal program.

The vote was close, with 153 MPs voting in favour of a motion introduced by the House public safety committee to scrap Tory MP Candice Hoeppner's bill, compared with 151 voting against the motion, which would have kept the bill alive.

The maps below show the results of the 2009 vote on the Conservative private member's bill to scrap the gun registry, the results of the 2010 vote on the motion to kill that bill, and in which ridings support for the gun registry changed between the two votes.
