RE "STREET wars - gun violence is way up" (Rob Lamberti, Dec. 31): Will the Sun please send a copy of this article to Prime Minister Paul Martin, former justice minister Allan Rock, Deputy PM Anne McLellan, the Toronto Star, Dalton McGuinty, Wayne Easter, David Austin of the Canadian Firearms Centre, Wendy Cukier of the Coalition for Gun Control, the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and any other do-gooder who starts blathering on about the "culture of safety" the the billion-dollar Firearms Act is supposed to be providing for Canadians? Continued increase in gun violence is proof positive that badly needed money that could go into health care, mental health counselling, more thorough Customs inspections and more police on the street is completely and utterly wasted on a firearms registry that has vilified duck hunters, target shooters and gun collectors (none of whom appear to be involved in Toronto gun violence) simply to satisfy a Liberal feel-good publicity campaign.
