Toronto Gangbanger murders...

Claim another innocent victim...

Concerns about the "sinister uses" of guns in society have prompted University of Toronto officials to rid the campus of its 88-year-old sport shooting range, despite its continued popularity and spotless safety record.

"In today's world, even the perception of tolerance of guns and gun violence is seen as a negative," said Catherine Riggall, the university's vice-president of business affairs, who approved the decision recently.
I dunno Catherine... given the repeated unwillingness of the various "communities" out there to cooperate with the police... there actually seems to be a demonstrated never-ending tolerance for gun violence... but don't let that stop you from shutting down a legitimate activity that hasn't harmed a single person in almost a century of it's existence.

Ms. Riggall concludes...
"This is the last university in the country to have a gun range on campus ... it's just not seen as a priority activity."
Unlike the university's renowned "Sexual Diversity" program...
"Visiting lecturers will address technical aspects of flogging, restraint, and role-play."
Good grief.

Let Ms. Riggall know how you feel.

UPDATE: But how could this happen again...

They already shut down the university gun range... the problem was supposed to be fixed.
There was no word on whether this latest execution-style shooting was related to any of the city's recent gun homicides, including Sunday's murder of aspiring rapper Michael George.
I guess they didn't get the word at "Banger Central."

my letter...

To C. Riggall.
I must state emphatically that i believe your support of the decision to shut down the range for the pistol and rifle club is misguided and targets the wrong people.

Why do law abiding, safe and responsible shooting enthusiasts have to pay the price for societies unwillingness to address the real issue of gun crime?

In the eighty eight (88) years this club has existed, not one single incident has marred their record

You state that you can't be seen as supporting gun culture.Why do you emphasize the negatives of a competition sport that actually helps promote handgun and small bore rifle safety across Canada?

In it's long existance, the club has promoted comradeship and fostered a mentoring program that has seen the safety of the sport exported by members to various other clubs across this land.

If not for this club, there would have been none of this, nor would there have been people like me who competed at Major international tournaments after cutting my teeth on the U of T range.

Unfortunately, like so many other campuses across Canada and the United States, the U of T has fallen victim to political correctness, the kind of which neither promotes fairness nor free thought.

If by banning the mere use of a highly regulated and controlled instrument caused crime to decrease , perhaps their would be some validation of your decision.Unfortunately, this is not the case, nor will it ever be.All that will happen is that law abiding gun owners will be deprived of their right to a legal activety, while the criminals (who are under no such constraints..) will still commit crimes with illegally obtained handguns and rifles.

I urge you to rethink your position on this issue, because if there was one tradition in your insitution that deserves recognition and praise for its longevity and proud history, this is it..

I can only state in closing that i find it odd that you do not consider it a priority issue, but with 400+
members, surely it is more prescient than the 'sexual diversity program' where " visiting lecturers will address technical aspects of flogging, restraint, and role playing".

Good lord!..is this what passes for higher education and tradition in the twenty first century?

Give me the time honoured tradition and unsurpassed safety record of the pistol and rifle club over this "educational" journey any day!

How come she has the authority to shut it down, where is the head man/woman/child to override this moonbat.
Why is it always women who seem to be so stupid.

My compliments to "kursk" on a well executed letter. It's a shame that people like Ms. Riggall have the power to dictate what is and isn't acceptable. Perhaps a little restraint and flogging would be in order here.

Morons have been running universities for some time. This is what they do. Cut the tree down at the root.
