As Shootings Rise, Toronto Mayor Supports Ineffective Plan

posted on June 10, 2016

Toronto, Canada, has recorded its 21st fatal shooting—more than double the count this time last year—and the city is averaging at least one shooting a day. On Monday, Toronto Mayor John Tory wrote that the shootings are “largely a result of targeted gang violence” and he has berated the “brazen” gang violence as “totally unacceptable.” 

Now, however, Tory says he supports a call for a gun amnesty, despite any evidence that it would make a difference. “I’m not going to rule out any tool that we can use … to try and get at this.” 

How exactly Tory thinks having law-abiding gun owners turn in their firearms will impact what he’s already admitted is gang violence is unclear. But it’s a story we’ve heard before—a city swept up in deadly gang violence, yet working feverishly to keep guns out of the hands of those who need them most.
