Because he has neither any idea nor the political will to deal with the gangs and guns problem in Toronto, Mayor David Miller has pulled yet another "ban" idea out of his......
However, the responsible gun owners are angry and fighting back. They're circulating Miller's asinine idea throughout Canada and the U.S. (which means the world, thanks to the Internet), to damage Toronto's tourism. They have one site for their association and another called Toronto the Bad.
This latest whim of Miller's will probably seriously damage Toronto's tourism industry, at a time when it's already on the ropes and high gasoline prices will prevent or redirect tourists in autos. DUH.
I'd been toying with the idea of joining a range and learning to shoot - I'd really like to learn how to clean a gun, and make ammunition - and Miller's lamebrained idea will speed up the process.
Meanwhile, Ontario has banned the display of legal tobacco products and is kicking around banning use of cell phones and text devices while driving.
How many bloody useless, optics-only laws do we not need? Are the provincial government and Toronto's city council colluding on how best to strip responsible people of all rights? First the province kills dogs for no good reason other than political ambition and optics to shore up their low approval rating...the province kicks around banning sushi, SUVs and church picnics...now the City of Toronto wants to stop a sport that is an Olympic event?
Is Toronto still handing out clean needles to junkies? Ottawa providing safe injection sites? Hmm, city councillors, where do you think junkies get money for their drugs? Yes, doofuses, they commit crimes. Why is Toronto supporting those with a habit that is maintained by criminal acts - the buying and selling of the drugs, and stealing (B&Es, muggings) to provide money for the drugs?
Is it time to move to a province and a city with some common sense?
