    Yes......as the Canadian police admit.....gun crime is going up.....

    Gun control does not stop criminals.....wether they kill with those guns has nothing to do with gun control laws, since they have illegal guns, the decision to kill with them is not controlled by gun laws they violate...

    Surge in gun crimes, mass attacks made 2018 ‘unique’ and challenging, Toronto police chief says

    “Every day, we’re seeing more guns,” Saunders said at a year-end news conference. “So that’s one aspect that has to be looked at. The second piece is what’s motivating people to use a gun to resolve issues.”

    In the past, both Saunders and senior officers with the force’s guns and gangs unit have said the domestic firearms have eclipsed weapons imported from the United States as those most likely to be used to commit a crime.

    At Thursday’s news conference, Saunders said he was less concerned with identifying the source of firearms than pinpointing what prompted people to use them, attributing the spike in gun violence to street gang activity.

    “If somebody wants a gun, they’re going to get a gun,” he said. “There are more streams to get access to them than ever before, and so dealing with that is one aspect of it, but changing that motivation, or apprehending those that are motivated to shoot I think is more of a primary concern in today’s environment.”

    Saunders acknowledged that 2018 was a particularly challenging year for the force that found itself taxed by a series of high-profile incidents.

    Vast resources were devoted to the investigation of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur, who is accused of killing eight men with ties to the city’s gay community over a seven-year period.

    He is spreading his wings. Its usually the UK and Australia that he uses for comparison. Sometimes Ireland gets it as well.
    And now its Canada.
    Every one of these places is safer than the US as is every other western civilised country.

    The fact that you can itemize murders from other nations is a pretty good indicator that they don’t have much of a murder problem.
