Pandering yet again

There have been laws against possessing unregistered handguns since the 1930's... and I'm pretty sure nobody has recently repealed the laws regarding murder... so what exactly is this idiot yammering about now?

-- TORONTO -- Toronto Mayor David Miller called Sunday for tougher gun laws after a spate of late-night shootings left an 11-year-old and two others dead in unrelated incidents.

“It's very clear that gun violence is connected to the ownership of guns,” Mr. Miller told the media.
Yeah... show me the connection here.

How exactly is going after legitimate owners of registered firearms gonna affect the overwhelmingly black-on-black gun violence that is plaguing Toronto-the-less-than-good?

If, in fact, police ever find the shooters, or the guns here... and with the less than spectacular cooperation from the "communities" involved, that's daily becoming less and less of a sure thing... they're gonna find that the guns in question were smuggled over our badly defended borders by one of Toronto's many criminal gangs.

Like the rest of Toronto's gun violence, these murders have nothing to do with legitimate owners and registered firearms.

Apparently though, no amount of factual evidence is gonna stop "Chicken Little" Miller and his progressive cheerleaders from trying to skew the responsibility here.

And where's Taliban Jack? If he really cared about saving lives maybe he could take a break from crapping on the military and hold a press conference demanding beefed up border security?

Yeah, right.

So what would actually do some good here?

How about more cops, less smoke and mirrors?

How about no more pretending the problem lies with law-abiding citizens?

Let's target the people pulling the triggers.

Don't be fooled... "Wake up and smell the socialists."

It's called deflection. When anything happens point the finger at someone else and call for immediate action to fix the problem. The majority of your supporters will fall for it and see you as an action guy. Whether or not you are actually solving the problem is unimportant. Perception is everything.

David Miller seems to think that illegal guns operating under their own volition and with magical powers of mobility are responsible for the gun violence in some unnamed community.

you've got seventy people partying at a "housing project" at 1:00 am... minutes away from the heart of jane and finch... and your 11 year old is wandering around outside where he gets caught in a gangbanger firefight.

who could have seen that coming?
