2 people are dead and many more are injured in Toronto after a mentally ill man opened fire on a restaurant.
As usual, Democrats are exploiting this tragedy to push gun control.
Even the mayor of Toronto got in on the action.
His solution to stopping crime? Take guns away from everyone!
From The Daily Wire:
On Monday, Toronto Mayor John Tory addressed the City Council in the wake of a deadly shooting in a popular Toronto neighborhood on Sunday night in which a shooter murdered an 18 year-old-girl and a 10 year-old girl while wounding 13 others. Tory called for stricter gun control, asking, “Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?”
I have said for some time that this city has a gun problem and that guns are far too readily available for far too many people. This is an international problem and this is a domestic problem. There are far too many people carrying around guns in our city and our region who should not have them. You’ve heard me ask the question of why anybody would need to buy 10 or 20 guns, which they can lawfully do under the present laws. And that leads to another question we need to discuss: Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?
That’s obviously not the right question to be asking.
Also, gun laws are very strict in Canada as it is.
Crime is going up pretty much across the board in Canada and it’s not because there aren’t enough laws on the books.
Conservatives on Twitter weren’t impressed.
Toronto doesn’t have a gun problem, It has a mayor problem.

Idk… Maybe to protect themselves from thugs who get the guns illegally.

Or do what London does…….why not have steak knife control? It does not work brother. The criminals will always get what they want. Please allow the citizens to defend themselves.

How disgusting that he could blame 3 million legal and law abiding gun owners for his failure to combat violence issues in his city. He should be ashamed of himself for the speed at which he put the blame on such good people who follow the law and are the best of what we are.

He's trying to paint gun collectors and enthusiasts as the people commiting mass murders when it is the exact opposite. WHAT AN IDIOT!

Maybe the mayor should call for murder control. It doesn't appear that criminals really care about laws.
