That gun ban sleight-of-hand isn't working out quite like you planned... you ready to trot out Plan B?
An east-end school has been put into lockdown after an apparent shooting in front of the building.**********
A man, who appears to be in his 20s, was found suffering from several gunshot wounds near Blessed Mother Teresa Catholic Secondary School on Sewells Rd., near Neilson Rd. and Sheppard Ave. E., around 10:40 a.m., Toronto Police Const. Wendy Drummond said.
The victim was rushed to Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital, with life-threatening injuries.
UPDATE: Yup... he's dead.
The victim has been identified as 19 year-old Shammal Ramsey.
And guess what... target shooters at registered gun clubs had nothing... absolutely nothing... to do with it.
And most people aren't stupid... they get that.
I've got a crazy idea... how about we go after the sociopaths who are actually pointing the guns and pulling the triggers?

Councillor Michael Thompson called Miller's actions "political junkfood."Minor? How about not even on the table?
"It's all cosmetic," Thompson said. "He's not willing to deal with the major issues; he deals with all things around gun violence which are very minor in nature."
'Cos, I'm pretty sure... but please, correct me if I'm wrong... farmers, hunters and target shooters... are totally off the hook here... YET AGAIN.
LAST WORD: Not your mom's Scarberia...
I walked the better part of a mile alone, every day, to grade one in Scarborough. I bet that doesn't happen much anymore these days...
"Stuff like this isn’t overly surprising," said Moe Patel, 18, a Pearson student who had left the school before the lockdown.*
"You hear about stabbings every day, every other day," Patel said.
Theo Obeng, 43, and Agnes Ansah, 40, came to check on their 18 year-old son and 14 year-old daughter, who were locked down at Mother Teresa. They said they try to keep their children inside their home as much as possible.
"It’s a bad area," said Obeng.
