POSTED RESPONSES TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
What a dishonest piece of legislation.
It does nothing about guns or guns being on the street or the criminals who carry and use guns.
It is a political lollipop for communities who have a high incidence of not looking after their own children.
"The Globe story quoting an ex-gang member who said handguns can be got for $100 a pop...."
I doubt this story seriously.
There are what are called "Saturday night specials" in the U.S., cheap little revolvers that can be had there for less than a $100.
But a decent quality gun is expensive even in the United States.
In Canada's restricted market, its value of course multiplies.
Guys carrying 9-millimeter automatics are carrying hardware likely worth $1500 in Toronto.
In any event, the fact that we do not have a good fix on the quality and quantity of handguns in the city again is a reflection on our ineffective police.
