CANADA CRACKDOWN: Toronto Asks Trudeau to BAN ALL HANDGUNS Within City Limits

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.26.18

The Toronto government passed a resolution this week that urged national lawmakers to ban the sale of all handguns and ammunition within the city limits; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown with the region’s gun owners.

The City Council voted by a whopping 41-4 to outlaw the sale of handguns throughout the nation’s largest metropolis. In Canada, the sale of firearms is regulated by the national government’s public safety minister.

“Mayor John Tory said in a speech to council hours after the shooting that there is a growing problem of people improperly acquiring guns that were originally purchased legally. Gun deaths have accounted for 29 of Toronto’s 58 homicides this year — compared to 17 fatal shootings at this time last year,” writes the CBC.

“Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?” asked Tory.

A lone gunman opened fired on a crowded Toronto restaurant Sunday evening, killing at least two people and injuring a dozen more as Canadian authorities struggle to find a motive behind the devastating attack.

According to Fox News, Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit said the attacker “fired shots at groups of people several times” while walking along the city’s busy restaurant district; adding police haven ‘t ruled out “terrorism.”

“I’m looking at every single possible motive for this,” said Canadian police. “When you have this many people struck by gunfire, it’s a grave concern.

The 29-year old gunman was later found dead, but police haven’t confirmed if the attacker was shot and killed by authorities or took his own life.

“Saunders said it was not clear if the gunman was killed by police or if he killed himself. The SIU said the suspected gunman, a 29-year-old man, was located by police on Bowden Street and ‘an exchange of gunfire took place.’ The man fled the area and was located, deceased, on Danforth Avenue, according to the SIU,” writes Fox News.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged to help his nation’s largest city as it struggled to cope with a “large influx” of migrants Friday; telling the Mayor of Toronto the national government “will be there.”

Trudeau was speaking with Toronto Mayor John Tory Friday when the local leader asked for help in handling the region’s escalating immigration crisis; saying “we’re there for people in challenging situations.”

“Canadians, we’re there for each other. We’re there for people in challenging situations and we know that we have to continue to demonstrate that our immigration system is strong and applies while staying true to our values,” said the Prime Minister.

The Toronto government has spent an estimated $65 million to house more than 3,000 refugees currently residing within the city limits.

“Neither leader said whether contingency plans were being put in place to deal with the 800 refugee claimants now housed in two Toronto college dorms who will have no place to go as of Aug. 9,” writes the Globe and Mail.
