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.
