    Anti-gun activist's son arrested
    Police find two guns hidden in man's pants

    STAFF REPORTER


    The son of a Toronto anti-gun violence activist faces multiple gun-related charges after he was arrested with two sawed-offrifles hidden down his pants.

    Police from the Emergency Task Force surrounded the house of Kadfi Farquharson, 23, on Duncanwoods Rd. in the Finch and Islington area just before 4 p.m. yesterday after being called to the area by a man who said someone had tried to shoot him.

    Farquharson's mother, Julia Farquharson, is a founding member of United Mothers Opposing Violence Everywhere (UMOVE), and speaks to dozens of groups across the city to plead for an end to gun violence.

    Yesterday the man called police after getting into an argument with a group of four men. He told police that after turning his back on the men, someone shot at him once. Police aren't sure whether the victim knew his shooter or what brought about the alleged attack.

    When Kadfi Farquharson emerged from his house police searched him and found two sawed-off rifles concealed in his pants. Police also arrested a 17-year-old boy with ammunition for a high-powered rifle.

    "Our belief is that these two men were part of the group of four that argued with the victim," said Staff Sgt. Ian Lamon of Toronto police.

    Along with the two guns, police also recovered one shell casing from a bullet.

    Julia Farquharson's oldest son, Kadfi Farquharson's brother, Segun, 24, was shot in the back and killed in a parking lot outside his home in May 2001 after being lured outside by a phone call. The murder has not been solved.

    Julia Farquharson also worked with the Humber Summit Resource Centre, a United Way agency, on after-school programs for North York children.

    Following Toronto's increase in gun violence in 2005 the mother of three said police need to get more serious about crime among young black men.

    "They should be looking at these lives as if it were their own lives," she said.

    Julia Farquharson also said police should institute spot checks for guns in high-crime neighbourhoods, along the lines of roadside R.I.D.E. programs

    Its not the first time something like that has happend.
    Im just curious as to why every leftists answer to a complex problem begins with gun control?

    The government needs to get serious about helping young black men to get off their duffs and get themselves an education. Get them off handouts or drugs and onto their own feet.
    Id dare to say that Bill Cosby is right, you cant expect the state to fix your problems. Real solutions have to come from within and cant be dealt with by laws.

    The government does not need to create more gun control to solve a social class/race ill. Taking someones guns away in a violent neighborhood wont do anything good for the crime rate.

    Happens all the time.

    It seems to me that half the rabid anti-gun campaigners in the US have impossible-to-get CCWs (Don Perata, Oakland CCW for example) and the other half get in trouble for firearms violations (several Million Mom March leaders, Michael Moore's bodyguard).

    How does one conceal rifles in their pants?

    Even with droop drawers I still find it hard to conceal a scoped Weatherby Vanguard or an unscoped Ruger 10/22 or whatever he had (Barrett M82 smuggled in from the US?)

    The media, by majority, is mostly left leaning. And in the city of Toronto, hopelessly left leaning. She is blaming "exclusion" for society failing her son, and a government who does not watch over her kids.:barf:

    She wants to see this ordeal proven in court to see "for sure" that her son is guilty.

    The rifles had their barrels cut down, and the stock to the handle sawed off.

    See video at top of page (very entertaining): http://www.pulse24.com/News/Top_Story/20060402-010/page.asp

    The Canadian gun forums are writing on this, but few letters are getting thru.

    So wait.... She's openly advocating RACIAL PROFILING. Seriously.

    I mean, Canada certainly doesn't have the same notion of civil rights as we do, or they wouldn't have stayed with the Brits in 1776, but even in a statist society, isn't there a problem with this?

    There are even t-shirts that parody the notion.

    From the article:

    If there's only a couple of inches of buttstock, an action and a couple of inches of barrel, it's not so hard.

    I love the mom's quotes from the article:

    Translation: "The world isn't giving me what it owes me! Waaahh!"

    a) If one of her children was murdered and the other is packing sawed-off rifles and involved in drugs, she is objectively NOT good mother.

    b) If she's such a good mother, where's the father?

    c) She should learn English grammar so her children will speak properly and have better opportunities in the English-speaking world.

    d) She named her sons Kadafi and Segun. What is she expecting them to be, business leaders? Successful stock brokers? Or drug dealers and murder victims?
