Toronto doesn't have a gun problem, it has a gang problem

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, we discussed how politicians and media have addressed the gun crime in both Canada and the United States in the last week with a focus on the record-breaking 244 shootings in Toronto so far this year.

So if the media is so quick to blame Donald Trump for shootings in America, why isn't Justin Trudeau held to the same standard?

Last year, Toronto's City Council voted to ban guns, but Mayor John Tory keeps armed guard provided by taxpayers to secure his condo and his gated Florida getaway.

Toronto doesn't have a gun problem, the city has a gang problem. But Liberals only have enough imagination to ban guns in an effort to address the violence. And that's not a solution.

Andrew, the murder rate in New York is virtually the same as the murder rate in London, guns or knives it all comes out the same. Where there is a will there is a way.”

Not even close. New York had 147 murders in 2017, and London had 70.

The breathless headlines picked up on a transient crime wave that was already over by the time it was reported on. That two month period accounted for most of Londons’ murders that year.

Andrew all gangs have guns or have access to them try and keep up. An inanimate object does not murder people , other people do.

The native gangs causing the problems largely can’t afford smuggled guns, though that’s changing now.. Winnipeg’s on track to hit 40 murders this year, a surging crime rate associated with skyrocketing rates of shootings. Give the meth-crazed loons firearms and see what happens to that crime rate.

Here’s the problem, MAGA. You can cause a LOT more damage to a crowd with a gun than with a knife. If you try the latter you’re going to be wrestled down and neutralized almost immediately since there’s no choice but be engaged in the crowd. If you have a gun, you find a safe position and start picking off victims. You notice how you never hear about mass-knifings? It’s because of the logistics of it.

Gangs with guns are more dangerous than gangs without.

Winnipeg also has a gang problem but they’re largely not armed with guns. If they were, it would be a bloodbath.
