    The most merciless gang in Canada is the government.

    It's amazing that they decide the problem is the legal owners and not the gangs. Perhaps if they were as zealous to get the gangs the problem could be solved.

    They steal all sorts of things to use in other crimes, like cars. Lets ban it all.
    And the 'so-called legal' part - point to a law to say it isn't. Otherwise they are acting within the law.

    Shooting an intruder does it.

    Point to a string of targeted break-ins, if you want to convince me that street gangs have suddenly become subtle and organized.

    I doubt the guy had 'high powered weapons'. I am so tired of this phrase, especially when a .223 is used.

    I'm not surprised at all. Street Gangs create chaos, thereby giving government justification to steal our liberty. Street Gangs will always be Officially Illegal, but unofficially welcome in CERTAIN poliitcal circles.

    Just ask Stalin, and Pol Pot, and Noriega, and Hussein, and Idi Amin....

    How much you wanna bet the leak is some people with access to Canada's gun registry? If the government won't confiscate them, some other criminals will.

    I guess creating a new class of criminals is easier than actively going after the existing criminals
    And the source of the gangs intelligence source still remains a mystery

    I have 40 in a locker that takes up a quarter of a small closet

    The fear that crimminals create gives socialist, totalitarian politicians the excuses they need to impose even more control over law-abiding citizens. Keeping violent crimminals in jail costs governments money. Letting them out early creates a perceived need for more government control, thus more taxes and less freedom. But some know that this is a contrived situation. I am among them.

    ... was used in September during one of the worst bloodbaths in the city's history. Three men were shot dead during a botched gun deal...


    Three deaths, among felons [if I read "botched gun deal" correctly], and that is a bloodbath ? :scrutiny:

    It never ceases to amaze me just how stupid some people can be.

    "Since we can't trust criminals, let's make criminals out of more people."

    God deliver Canada from such fuzzy thinking.

    The Toronto mayor is perhaps the cerebral deprived elected representatives in Canada. HIs city is awash in debt and his administration is probably the most inept in Canada. Most of us up here can't figure out why you Americans didn't plow it under when you burned it to the ground back in the early 1800's. Of course we might have turned around and done the same thing to Washington, D.C. when it was it's turn to burn but then from my eyes I think we at this point probably would have been even up.

    Old news though really. Toronto elected all Liberals and a handful of NDP in our recent election which was great. The rest of the country elected Conservatives!

    To answer somebodies question, yes three murders by firearms is a blood bath up here. I think last year we had approx. 150 firearm homicides in the whole country. Toronto had just under or over 80 murders from all methods in 2005. Total homicides for the whole country amounted to just over 500 or about the same as Chicago or Washington, D.C.

    Oh well Parliament opens March 23 and smart money is betting the long gun registry is history.

    Take Care

    In the eyes of that government? its a toss up.
    Seems very odd to me that criminals can needle gun owners so specificly. I'd almost wonder if someone didnt help them to registry data just so a month later a politician can complain about all the guns collectors have put back on the streets.

    Youve got thousands of criminals who need thousands of weapons. A few dozen here and there from a home will not shift the balance of power thats already in the lawbreakers favor.

    It's a fairy tale

    They try to say collectors are being targeted and all they can cite is one case from 3 years ago? Talk about a made up scenerio to justify anti-gun hysteria. Seems like an orchestrated fairy tale meant to turn the general public against gun owners and make the owners feel like pariahs that have to hide their collections and not be vocal about their lawful use of firearms to me...and a badly done one at that. :scrutiny:

    see "The Terminator "

    One long pump shotgun plus one hack saw equals one short, under coat weapon.

    Ban hack saws. Only union steel workers with a need should have them.

    How does the Street gangs get a list of gun owners in Canada? I thought the Goverment was the only one with that list in Canada ? Are they sharing? And if they know the gangs arte going to targret these homes - why not let the owners protect themselves or do police intellegence work to stop the gangs, after all if they know there is a crime being planned they should try to stop it. Or is this an attempt at coercion gun control.?

    "We know they are gathering intelligence on gun owners, but we don't yet know exactly how they are doing it" .

    It has not been proved yet, but there is a good chance the registry was hacked, or, that someone in the government has released data.

    "Street gangs zero in on gun owners"??? :confused:

    They obviously haven't learned from Katrina. When the NO gangs came up here, the headlines were reading "Gun owners zero in on street gangs"! :D

    Toronto is facing rolling black-outs in a couple years due to lack of
    both powerplants and infrastructure to support the suburbs, but
    the REAL problem with the city are the 1/2 dozen legal gun owners
    who still live there......:rolleyes:

    The gun collector was charged with the criminal act of improper storage of firearms, and has fled to Florida, where he now lives. Maybe all of Canada's gun owners should move to the U.S. and bring their guns with them. Then the Canadian criminals and politicians can get cozy with each other.

    I would argue that no one really has the right to be safe. And if one right trumps another, then one of them isn't a right to begin with.
