    The gun ban is coming to Canada, it's almost assured with these clowns. "We will protect you" even as the murder rate in Toronto reached a record.

    Listen to this jackasses comment, typical Canadian who was a cop so he knows HE will have guns.

    Handgun ban still on table as feds give Toronto $7M to fight violence

    A handgun ban is still under consideration as the federal government looks for ways to curb the rise in gun violence, federal Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Minister Bill Blair says.

    Blair held a joint media conference with Mayor John Tory in Toronto Thursday to announce $400,000 for neighbourhood policing and $6.8 million over five years for youth gang prevention programs.

    Tory and other city mayors have asked the federal government for a handgun ban — in Toronto’s case, at least within the city limits — and Blair said that option is still on the table.

    The only legal reason to possess a handgun in Canada is for sport shooting, not for personal safety, the minister said.

    That's sad. There's a lot of good Canadians out there.


    One has to keep in mind that Canadians were British Loyalists who didn't want to fight for America, though.

    So they left and went North, aye?

    Our Commonwealth is a shadow of the liberty and Rights that Americans have. Worse, monarchies ensure one outcome, unaccountable, rampant government power and abuses. Some of the most startling.

    Perhaps the gun owners of Canada should have a meeting of their own in Toronto, with their pistols?

    Haha, that's now how Socialist countries work. They are probably right now looking for a hole to hide them in, or themselves on the lam like Fugitives "hide the pistols honey!".

    The very comment that people don't need guns for personal safety illustrates the absolute desire for these Overlords to have citizens dependent. Any interview you ever see a Canadian police chief involved in, they are ALWAYS in uniform, never in a suit and tie. They don't want you to look at them as regular, professional citizens, they want you to look at them as a Moscow Police Chief would "I am the boss and always in uniform always prepared to deal wth you!" They think they military instead of domestic civil servants.

    This is what happens when you don't have a Second Amendment. Heck it is happening in the U.S. and we DO have the 2A. Corrupt, activist courts uphold illegal State laws all the time. Guns are a Federal issue covered by the Constitution in which the states agreed to when they became states.

    Law abiding Canadian gun owners need to make it clear to Ottawa, and their Provincial governments that they will not tolerate a ban on handguns. Criminals will still have them, and get them illegally. Disarming the law abiding is more than stupid.

    Well the gangs will like the lack of gun in homes. What they say about sport shooting and personal safety make not sense what so ever. They think different than we do
