    Miller seeks to ban guns with bylaw

    May 26, 2008 05:04 PM

    Mayor David Miller wants guns out of Toronto — and he's backing a tough new bylaw that would ban the manufacture and warehousing of guns in the city.

    And while Miller says handguns are the particular target of the proposed bylaw, a staff report doesn't distinguish between handguns and rifles and shotguns used in hunting.

    The bylaw, proposed in a staff report, would give the city zoning powers to restrict or ban the manufacture and warehousing of firearms.

    Miller said he wants to add ammunition to the bylaw as well.

    And he had strong words about gun ownership, referring to the recent shooting of John O'Keefe, who was killed on Yonge St. by a stray bullet fired from a legally owned handgun.

    "After John O'Keefe's tragic killing, I don't think there's any defence for sports shooters any more," Miller said.

    "It's a hobby that creates danger to others. Guns are stolen routinely from so-called legal owners. It's time that we got those guns out of Toronto."

    Miller said the focus is especially on handguns.

    "It's handguns that are so easily accessible to criminals, and it's handguns that so often kill people on the streets on Toronto," he said.

    "It's about a value. Do we as a society value safety, or do we value a hobby that creates danger? And nobody can deny that that hobby directly results in people being shot and killed on the streets of our city. Those are the facts. And they're provable again and again and again."

    A report from city staff urges the city to end leases with two gun clubs that have rifle ranges in city facilities.

    The proposed bylaw would ban all firearms from being discharged in the city, except by police or the military. "

    Please support a boycott of this city. Visit for more information on how to express your opinion to city council and toronto tourism.

    Here is one of many comments by city council that show how anti-American they are:

    "Letters from outside the city and indeed from across North America have been trickling in since council made its decision. My favourite letters are the ones being sent from the U.S. Gun owners there are now urging a boycott of Toronto. Considering that most of the problems with guns on our streets emanate from south of the border, I couldn't be happier.

    If all it took was closing a couple of shooting ranges to stop gun-toting Yanks from coming to our city, maybe we should have shut the doors on these clubs years ago."

    That's a useless thought. When's the last time you found an American business that would accept Canadian money in payment. Hell, I live in WA state just south of the border and the businesses here won't take it (but they give it as change to the unsuspecting). that the NYC of the North?
