If only there were a law...

...wait a minute...

Kyle Weese, 25, has an extensive criminal record and is well known to police in the Leslieville neighbourhood where he lives, said Det. Sgt. Gary Giroux of the homicide squad.

"This is an extremely violent man with an extremely violent history."


Giroux added Weese is prohibited from owning weapons.
Well, you know... maybe we just didn't ask nice enough, huh?

UPDATE: C'mon Dalton, I double-dare you...

...tell us again, how all we need is "more social workers"...
According to news reports, a 21-year-old man with the same name faced numerous weapons and assault charges in February of 2005 after a man was shot on Sherbourne Street.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"Time and time again I am told by Liberals that tougher sentences don't work. They don't reduce crime rates and they don't stop reoffenders."

"What I don't understand is that if this loser had been locked up say, after his second violent crime, how it wouldn't reduce the crime rate? I mean I can think of one extra murder that wouldn't have occurred if they had locked him up for good last time around."

LAST WORD: And rounding out the weekend...
-- TORONTO -- At around 5:30pm, police responded to calls about a person with a gun at 25 Bishop Tutu Blvd. in the Lakeshore and Bathurst area.

It's alleged the youth had just attended a birthday party for an acquaintance's four-year-old daughter when he and two still-unidentified males got involved in an argument with several other guests.

The 15-year-old suspect, a Toronto resident is charged with 13 firearms and weapons charges as well as aggravated assault, breaching a firearms prohibition
and probation.
Yeah... farmers, hunters and gun clubs... that's the real problem here.

oh well.

Our uniformed social service might find him with their 'Canada wide warrant for his arrest', but hopefully instead of that he'll piss off a group of people who hand out real consequences when they're wronged, unlike us.

If caught he'll be charged with second degree murder, if convicted he'll get maybe 15 years, with mandatory parole after two thirds of the sentence he'll get out for sure in ten years but maybe even earlier than that.

Banned from owning guns? Guess that ban worked real well.

Gun restrictions are only effective against law abiding citizens. Criminals ignore these laws and use firearms without remorse. Why? Because they're criminals you wolly-brained hug-a-thug do-gooders.

"powell lucas says... Gun restrictions are only effective against law abiding citizens."

way easier to go after a farmer's varmint rifle... than actually target criminals.

Hard to believe the people of Ontario are that stupid, that they actually believe Dalton the dunce, and Miller the moron are going to save them from the gangsta's with a handgun ban.

If you lived in Toronto, you are just one of the fish in the barrel for the gangsta.

You know if the government has a gun registry, the criminals got one too.

The tories need to get rid of John Tory, and replace him with Julian Fantino. He knows all about gangsta's and how to treat them.

"How can a person described as 'dangerous, violent, well-known to police and under a weapons prohibition' (from 2005) be free from custody and now be wanted for a shooting murder in 2008?"

"Will we ever get an answer to that? And who is accountable when our repeat violent offenders are charged again and again?"

"We had better start demanding answers because too many people are dying allegedly at the hands of suspects before the courts or free on conditions imposed by them."

Actually, the shooting at Bishop Tutu's place (heh), was by a 14 year old, and as you say, he was charged with, among other things:

11) Possession of Firearm Contrary to Prohibition Order; and,

12) four counts of Fail to Comply with Probation

Yep, banning guns will stop this kind of stuff, fer shure.

So, even if he gets hit with the max (ha!), he'll be out before he's 18. Lovely...

"jag says... So, even if he gets hit with the max..."
