Guns Kill Canadians Too

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 12:12 pm

Despite Canada’s tight restrictions on handguns, they have seen a surge in gun violence.

Of course, the blame is placed squarely on shoulders of the Americans:

“It’s a sign that the lack of gun laws in the U.S. is allowing guns to flood across the border that are literally being used to kill people in the streets of Toronto,” [Toronto Mayor David] Miller said . . .

“The U.S. is exporting its problem of violence to the streets of Toronto,” he said . . .

Miller said the availability of stolen Canadian guns is another problem, and that poverty in certain Toronto neighborhoods is a root cause.

Gee . . . ya think? If Canada should ban handguns altogether and if the United States should follow suit, what’s to stop the street gangs from obtaining their weapons from Mexico? Or illegally, as they are doing now?

Quite a deep thinker, that Toronto mayor.
