Justin Trudeau targets legal gun owners while Black gang gun violence runs rampant

Legislation introduced by the Trudeau government targets lawful gun owners instead of illegal activity. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Bill C-21 Tuesday, which is new legislation to amend the Criminal Code and the Firearms Act. The legislation would allow municipalities to ban handguns through by-laws restricting storage and transportation. This includes federal penalties to anyone that violates the by-laws. https://energeticcity.ca/2021/02/16/75883/

Black Gang gun violence is a growing problem in Canada’s biggest city Toronto. By the end of 2019, more than 760 people had been shot in the city, 44 of whom were killed, according to Toronto Police. That’s triple the number of shooting victims in the city in 2014. https://www.npr.org/2020/01/17/794510796/why-gun-violence-is-surging-in-toronto

In 2004 94 per cent, of shootings are believed to be Black gang-related. Staff Insp.
