Toronto Mayor John Tory: “We could live quite well without [guns] in Toronto, legal or illegal”

David MenziesMission Specialist

Before placing flowers at the memorial for the victims of Sunday's mass shooting on the Danforth, Toronto Mayor John Tory addressed a resident concerned about the rise in gun violence in the city.

Tory responded that tackling the illegal trafficking of firearms was a priority.

When asked by The Rebel's David Menzies why Tory and others at City Hall also seem to be willing to go after legal handgun owners, too, Tory replied that he doesn't believe that anyone needs to own a handgun in the city, legally or otherwise.

Why is it that none of the lefties will answer my simple question:
How many Germans did we let into the country during WWII and why?

Any time a lefty won’t answer they have already answered but are too gutless to admit it.

“London UK Murder rate; Since Jan the 1st 2018 up until Sat 21st July 2018
Eighty murders.

Winnipeg, a city ~1/10 the size, has had 11 so far, a rate that’s far higher than London’s.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Why not compare London now with London then? Or Toronto now with Toronto then? But since we are comparing, notice that for all our guns control laws in Canuckistan, Manitoba has almost double the murder rate of neighbouring North Dakota in some years with their constitutional carry law and Minnesota with their concealed carry permits of which there are over 200,000.

North Dakota Murder Per !00,000: 2
Manitoba Murder Per 100,000: 3.51
Minnesota Murder arete Per 100,000: 2

Minnesota concealed carry permits: 265, 728 a new record high in 2-16.

“If there were no guns in private circulation before the 1970’s how did my daad go hunting in the 1940’s and50’s and 60’s and 70’s? Whom did they sell hunting licences to if there were no guns? "

OK, so we know you didn’t read my post before you went off on your wild rant (hopefully you at least feel a bit better after that). You even pasted my acknowledgement of there being rifles and shotguns – and calling out of handguns, which is true, were very rare then, into your own post. Seriously, your response is truly baffling. Are you OK? I’m not asking that to be difficult, I am legitimately concerned.

Mr_Babies-Are-Parasites i read your whole NS post. I answered in response to what you wrote. To wit: “Also, the entire concept of carrying weapons for self-defense was virtually unknown, SO THERE SIMPLY WEREN’T FIREARMS CIRCULATING IN PUBLIC.”

That is what you said. Not me.
So which is it. Were there guns circulating in public or not? Try to be consistent. I know its hard for lefty but give it the old college try.

It is laughable for the one who seriously thinks that Babies Are Parasites to question whether I am OK. You are the delusional one who is desperately seeking comforting lies.

At any rate, I’m not sure it’s worth providing a topical response, since it’s unclear you’ll actually consider it on its own merit before letting your emotions take over.

“Tory doesn’t get it. "

Yes he does, D-FENS. He absolutely gets it.

He knows full well that what he is spouting is horse shit, but he just doesn’t care. And he doesn’t care because he is the stereotypical politician: a power-hungry sociopath who will do/say whatever it takes to hang on to power. He knows full well that banning handguns in Toronto will do absolutely nothing to stop this kind of murder; but he also knows full well that most of the ovine electorate will think that it’s a good thing.

Toronto: old Huron word for “land of crying papoose”.

It is indeed a shithole, but then again, so are all of our great cities. Why, the evening news from once-placid, boring old Ottawa regularly features stories about gut-shot Somalis and flying bullets in residential neighbourhoods at high noon.

And you don’t have to be much of a prophet to realize that this is as good as it will ever be – things are just going to continue to spiral ever-down. It is the inevitable result of urbanization, which produces ever-more dependant, effete and stupid populations which can be increasingly relied upon to nominate/elect the likes of turdo la doo, Wynne, McGuinty, Tory, Robertson, Nenshi, Scheer, etc.

Every now and then – but only after mortal damage to their city, province or country has been inflicted by the likes of the above – they will elect someone like a Harris, Ford or Harper, but inevitably they go back to even more extreme versions of their preferred choices.

Tory is the perfect choice for Toronto. His incompetence is on the recent historical record for all to see, and is his integrity quotient is a matter of record as well: he missed the vote on the Clean Water Act because, ahem, he “got stuck in traffic”..

So I don’t care much about cities in general and Trawna in particular. Their fate is suicide, and there is absolutely nothing anybody is willing to do about it.

Then you can lead by example John, have your body guards and cops then em in first…..it will be utopian. 😂
commented 2018-07-25 22:46:39 -0400
But he has armed security! When he gives up his security, who act essentially as body guards, then he can honestly speak to this matter. Virtue signalling is usually a lot of hot air and do as I say, but not as I do.

Tony, during WWII we knew that not all Germans were Nazis. How many did we let into the country and Why?

Why are you afraid to answer such a simple question?
commented 2018-07-25 22:05:45 -0400
Terry Gain,

You do realize that the brown people you hate have not been responsible for the vast majority of gun crime that has risen in Toronto. It’s drug and gang related primarily.

I realize you all WANT all the gun violence in the city to be terrorist attacks, so I understand why you are so disappointed that they are not.

No handguns. What firearms there were, were mostly rifles and shotguns, which aren’t particularly useful for committing crimes.
________________________________________________________________________________
Andrew why don’t you spend time on subjects you know something about -if there are any. So there were no handguns in Canada before the 1970"S. Thats funny because I know many people who owned them in the 60’s and there was much less restrictions owning them. Did you not see the post that says Canada has had a handgun registry since 1934? If there were no handguns what were they registering? This is so obvious I would think not even you would walk into it.

Also, the entire concept of carrying weapons for self-defense was virtually unknown, so there simply weren’t firearms circulating in public.
________________________________________________________________________________
Would you care to back this up with a source? Of course not. You lefitist’s opinions are revelations from god.
Do you actually believe there were NO FIREARMS circulating in public? Gadzooks, what an idiot. There have been firearms circulating in public since the first Europeans landed here. Ever heard of the buffalo hunt. Do you think those guns were government property? Why don’t you stop humiliating yourself with your lack of knowledge MR.-Babies-Are-Parasites? It must be a leftist thing like our idiot PM who humiliates himself over and over but is to stupid to be embarrassed by his antics.

If there were no guns in private circulation before the 1970’s how did my daad go hunting in the 1940’s and50’s and 60’s and 70’s? Whom did they sell hunting licences to if there were no guns? Give your deluded head a shake. Anyone with two functioning brain cells to rub together could see this is total BS.

Maybe take a history course or read a book.

Maybe you are just a troll. Only a troll would post such utter and easily shredded nonsense, Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites.

Can someone explain why when the Toronto Maple Leafs were winning Stanley Cups on a regular basis in the 1960s, Canadian firearms control laws were quite casual and were accompanied by much lower rates of violent crime, including homicide, in Toronto and the rest of this country. What changed? "

Generally speaking, if there were no Muslims we would not need guns. I suspect that Tory is part of the NWO/Trudeau consortium. His interests in disarming the public are all aimed at protecting the Islamic Jihad when it rears it’s ugly head.
commented 2018-07-25 17:43:53 -0400
Tory knows that by attacking legal gun owners he will create a huge public outcry that will change the media focus away from his inability to address the real problems, which we can’t talk about. Meanwhile, he slips out the back door, cowardly in action.

Tory doesn’t get it. I don’t need to NEED a handgun to get one. I just need to WANT one.
But I don’t.
Others do. If they meet the requirements, get off their case.

Mayor Tory, you are besmirching the memory of Reese and Julianna by using them as pawns in your anti-gun game plans when you know full well that legal gun acquisition and ownership had NOTHING to do with their deaths. Disgusting.

Great idea John .You can tie a bell around the neck of all the gangbangers and terrorists that pack guns so we can all scatter when we hear the bells.
But what do we do about Ryder Vans ? And those nasty pressure cooker bombs?

Would you agree with me that the city of Toronto voters should vote John “Willow” Tory out if he tries to take law-abiding citizens guns away. The idiot only wants terrorist and criminals to be armed…someone stop Tory.
