Discussion Topic: Toronto Mayor Targets Gun Clubs
He also has gun manufacturers in his sights. In fact, he’s pretty much after the whole shooting match.

From the Toronto Sun:

Mayor David Miller is turning his sights on shooting clubs and gun manufacturers.

The mayor, who last month called for a national handgun ban, said yesterday he supports new recommendations to shut down two gun clubs that operate out of city-run facilities.

The recommendations . . . also call for a new zoning bylaw to restrict the use of firing ranges to the police, military and provincial and federal governments.

The bylaw would "prohibit establishments that manufacture, assemble, warehouse and/or distribute guns."

Your reaction?


When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Jew.
When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.
