-- TORONTO -- Kyle Weese's plea bargain that saw gun charges dropped in 2006 came at a time when the provincial government was proclaiming the success of a policy not to make such deals.Funny how that works.
"We absolutely fully prosecute gun crimes to the fullest extent and oppose bail on gun crimes. We already do that," then-attorney general Michael Bryant said in the legislature in November 2006.
