American Guns in Toronto

Some bloggers and other right-wing commentators criticized Toronto Mayor David Miller last week for saying that guns crossing the border illegally from the United States are a serious problem on Toronto streets. Miller was slammed as an anti-American socialist for making these remarks. However, he's only continuing to advance the arguments that were first raised by Conservative Police Chief Julian Fantino and Conservative Public Security Minister Bob Runciman, and now supported by Ontario Conservative leader John Tory.

I wrote about it myself last year and in 2003.

The point of registering legal guns is somewhat diminished when more than 50% of the guns used in crimes are smuggled here from the US. Why not get serious about border security?
