    After a mass shooting left three people dead, including the shooter, in Toronto on Sunday, the city's conservative mayor backed a proposal that even the most liberal American politicians wouldn't dare support ― a total ban on all handgun sales.

    "Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?" Mayor John Tory asked at a city council meeting on Monday.

    Tory spoke a day after 29-year-old Faisal Hussain opened fire with a handgun on a busy avenue in the city, killing two females and injuring 13 other people. The incident left Torontonians in fear and mourning and prompted the city council to vote on Tuesday night to ask the federal government to ban the sale of handguns within city limits.

    "What's happened in the United States is what not to do," said Toronto city councilman Joe Cressy following Sunday's shooting.


    Toronto's Mayor Did What No U.S. Leader Has Done After A Mass Shooting

    So do they really think that a ban on handguns in Toronto will stop people from getting guns? They consider this Mayor a conservative?

    I don't know, but I think liberal politics is beginning to infect our friends up north. A nice dog and pony show to placate the masses. Canada already has strict gun measures, in fact, the same measures liberals think we should implement here such as special licensing, government training, and of course, all the red tape. But oh! It's not working very well.

    Will our Democrats learn anything from Canada? Probably not. But according to this Huff piece, their strict regulations have led to more shootings and gun deaths in 2018 compared to last year.

    A "conservative" politician in Canada might be similar to a "conservative" politician in England but is not the same as a conservative in the U.S. The "Bill of Rights" that Americans enjoy does not apply in Canada.

    Yep, Mayor Tory. Watch how popular his position is, though I think he wants a ban ons ales within Toronto alone if I'm not mistaken. I didn't even know we had gun stores in Toronto, that's how rare they are, hah.

    I believe this request would require a change to our laws at all levels, time will tell if this flies...

    Why do you say it’s not working well? Because of this one incident? I haven’t looked at the numbers but does Canada have a fun violenve problem?

    And I gotta correct one of your statements. A hand gun ban will absolutely stop people from getting guns, that’s the whole point. It won’t stop everybody but it puts less guns out there you can’t really dispute that.

    A ban on all handguns is reckless and stupid. It would be totally against the constitution here. Not sure of any of the Canadian laws on this but this just makes no sense to me.

    And in effort to defend the citizens, take away their guns to protect themselves.

    Come to think of it, isn't that what the left is trying to do here? They are importing criminals and wanting to disarm the public at the same time. Now there's a good combination.
