When those pesky laws against...

...shooting people just aren't enough...
The 6:30 p.m. event, organized by Coun. Kristyn Wong-Tam, is a response to the disturbing spate of recent gun violence that culminated with a fatal shooting inside the Eaton Centre on June 2. Seven people were injured in the shooting, including a 13-year-old boy and a pregnant woman who was trampled in the rush to evade bullets.

“We all cared about the single day shooting at Eaton Centre. What about everyday threat of gun-violence in distressed neighbourhoods?” Wong-Tam asked on Twitter.
Thank you Ms. Wong-Tam... I'm sure this ban will be just as effective as Toronto declaring itself a nuclear-weapons free zone back in the Layton/Chow salad days... wait a minute...
A 31-year-old man has remarkably survived after he was shot 10 times in North York on Monday night, just a few hours after a downtown vigil calling for a gun-free Toronto.

Police were called to the Frontline Sugar restaurant on Wilson Avenue, east of Weston Road, for reports of gunfire around 10 p.m. Officers didn’t find a victim at the scene.

Investigators are still searching for a suspect, described as black and 24 to 25 years old. He was wearing a grey T-shirt and Capri jeans.
Okay... maybe this thing won't do shit about Toronto's notorious street-gang violence... but it did get Kristyn Wong-Tam some free publicity.

In pinko Toronto... it's all good.

p.s. - small correction here... the restaurant is actually the Frontline Suga... a small, but no doubt important distinction to its owners, staff & clientele.
