It’s good to see that gun control is not such a settled issue in The Great White North, that things like this are still a bone of contention.Â Canada is a great example of why anyone who thinks they will stop with licensing and registration is a fool.
“The risk that a legal handgun becomes an illegal handgun is not a hypothetical risk. It’s established,” Bryant said, pointing to the Toronto police figure that 30 per cent of crime guns are stolen from legal owners and 70 per cent are smuggled.
To Bryant and company, it means that getting rid of legally owned handguns in Canada would reduce a significant number of handguns from getting into the hands of criminals.
If it were up to Ontario and Quebec, Canada would already have a handgun ban.
