Toronto Police Association says that national handgun ban won’t stop criminals from getting guns

With Canada government considering a ban on handguns, the Toronto Police Association has spoken out against the ban.

“There’s no way in my world or any world I know that this would have an impact on somebody who’s going to go out and buy an illegal gun and use it to kill another person or shoot another person,” Mike McCormack, the president of the Toronto Police Association, said Friday.

If you want to reduce crime, the police argue that spending the money on traditional police services would be more effective than spending in on banning guns.

The murder problem in Toronto is a drug gang problem. If people think that they are going to be able to stop criminals from getting illegal drugs any more easily than they have been able to stop the criminals from getting illegal drugs, they will be in for a surprise.

Even the Liberal government’s own report appears to show little support for the handgun ban.
