It’s time to take a tough stand against gun crime.
Toronto needs an “all hands on deck” response to the current crisis that deploys resources not only in reaction to gun crime, after it happens, but also in prevention of gun crime, before it does. Yes, we must target the root causes of crime. But Toronto shouldn’t hesitate to target the thing itself: Guns.
City Council must put guns in the cross hairs and prioritize the following measures:
- Ban the sale of Handguns and Handgun Ammunition in Toronto.
- Implement mandatory firearm liability insurance.
Handguns, assault rifles, and their associated ammunition have no place in our city. Legally owned firearms carry sufficient risk that, just as with automobiles, they should be insured by sellers and owners.
This is about who we are as a city.
