The latest gunfight in YZ is going to get some attention....it was in the upscale Beaches neighbourhood and the duellists were driving a Mercedes and an Audi suv...

And for all the heated debate about guns in Toronto, they were used in a little more than half the murders. The first murder in Toronto for 2019 was the result of a stab wound.

PC Toronto's approach to crime management has allowed a form of anarchy to begin to take hold across the city.

Politicians have been restricting the police for years now and by doing so have granted the upper hand to the element, which has allowed criminals to expand their territories and bring gun fights between competing gangs to suburbia.

It does go against the narrative of Adam Vaughan, Tory, and other city councillors that the violence is from disadvantaged immigrant youth.

But both the victims were black and presumably the shooters as well. Gangs get rich then get dead

Where do all the guns come from??? Here is just another source of smuggled guns:

Quote

Randy Jackson admitted Monday that he smuggled 67 firearms from his native Michigan into the black market in Ontario in 2017. 

While in custody last year, Jackson said he wondered how much of Toronto’s record shooting and homicide spree in 2018 was caused by his weapons, court heard.

“It was a painful feeling to see so many (shooting) stories break (on the nightly news)  and wonder if I had any fault in it,” the 35-year-old father of four told court Monday. “I never thought too seriously about the consequences of my actions.”

Nice try on the mea culpa......what the hell did he think the guns would be used for??

Just how many guns get through is anyone’s guess....stories like this make Blair and Trudeau look like idiots trying to blame gun owners for the spike in gun crimes.

And people wonder why there is an illegal gun problem in Toronto:

Two years ago, he was convicted of possession of a firearm and received time served — 45 days pre-sentence custody — and a $10 fine.

Btw....this statement is part of the bio of the guy police arrested in Toronto, responsible for their first homicide of 2019. As they say, he was known to police.

I keep asking Liberal acquaintances the same question but get no answer.... what did you think was going to happen? 

There is/was no other outcome possible.

there are a couple of issues here.  First the cop is an idiot if the gun went off while being cleaned as it should have been cleared prior to being put away after leaving therange or the field or wherever it was last being used.  Bi oops  there.

second.  Who cleans a gun with a round in the chamber.  Actually how can you properly clean a gun with a round in the chamber.  This is where the story gets fishy.

idiots abound

I don't want to play defense for the guy, but sometimes the latch that holds the firing pin back is weak, or worn, which requires the services of a gunsmith to repair to return the weapon to a safe condition.

Although this kind of failure could be sudden, it's more likely a slowly progressing breakdown the operator would notice developing.

In that was the case, running a shell through the load / unload cycle aggressively may have led to failure and the weapon going off unexpectedly?

On the other hand, ...

Thats why any gun owner has dummy rounds.  you never do that with a live round.  Thats kind of covered in step 1 of safe handling practices.

I use snap caps for dry fire practice as it is easier on the firing pin. Overall though, I suspect the average gun owner actually doesn't.

RCMP taken to court for failure to disclose firearms information

 

The RCMP are being taken to court for failing to disclose information they had previously been ordered to give.

The incident started when an anonymous person filed a request for the FRT (Firearms Reference Table). This database lays out how the RCMP reclassify firearms.

The RCMP refused to show it to them.

The person appealed to the Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) for help, and the Commissioner ordered the RCMP to comply with the request.

The OIC is a non-partisan government body designed to protect the rights of Canadians looking to get information from government institutions.

The RCMP refused again. This time with someone higher up of their side.

Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness, who oversees the RCMP, sided with them in this dispute.

Now the case is going to court on the recommendation of the Information Commissioner.

According to the Canadian Coalition for Firearms Rights (CCFR), The RCMP originally claimed that The RCMP may refuse requests that require the sharing of “trade secrets or financial, commercial, scientific or technical information that belongs to the Government of Canada.”

Now they are saying they can’t respect the request as it would involve disclosing the serial numbers of firearms, which they consider to be “personal information”.

The OIC disagrees with this defense.

The CCFR also claims that this particular document has been shared with foreign governments and organizations at least 10000 times, putting doubt on the credibility of this argument.

The court ruling will have major implications to the extent that the RCMP can stop public inquiries into their practices.

This isn’t the first time the RCMP have had issues with transparency.

In 2016 an employee at RCMP has faked a response to an Access to Information request made by the journalist. Minister Goodale at the time called the incident “unacceptable.”

Journalists have had to deal with poor practices from the RCMP for many years, including having to wait ridiculous amounts of time for mundane information. 

The Office of the Information Commissioner has slammed the RCMP for it’s poor handling of Access to Information requests for years, made even more crucial by this government’s promise to improve and relax the process for requesting information.

TPM reach out to Minister Goodale, and his office said that “the question of whether the serial number of property constitutes personal information has arisen from time to time in various government departments and each situation is unique depending on the circumstances.”

They added that “there is an imminent judicial hearing related to a separate Access to Information request that also involves the serial numbers of firearms and whether those should be considered private information.”

The crime situation is worsening across the northern burbs ringing Canada's largest and most dangerous City, which led a friend to invest 10 K in a home security system.

I don't think it's going to be enough?

I also thought Toronto fitted that description but evidently not, in fact it is not even in the top 10.

By a long shot, the most dangerous city in Canada is listed as North Battleford, Saskatchewan.  https://www.narcity.com/news/here-are-the-most-dangerous-cities-in-canada-right-now-ranked-by-the-crime

But, here's what's most surprising  - Winnipeg, Manitoba ranks at the top of the list for robbery, and Port Hope, Ontario is seeing the highest increase in fraud-related crimes right now. 

As far as major cities go, their rankings are actually pretty low on the list. Vancouver is the 35th most dangerous city in Canada, Calgary is 93rd, Montreal is 97th, Toronto is 124th, and Ottawa is 144th.
