Shootings and Knifings

In a follow up article, a source indicated it was entirely possible to hide a gun under the scrotum or under multiple layers of clothing......my question is how big a nut sack do you have to have to hide a 9mm???

Also in the article, another tidy bit from the handgun issue that the politicians try to play down:

Quote

In January, military man Randy Jackson was sentenced to eight years in prison for smuggling 67 handguns — including three stashed in his compression underwear while driving across the border from his native Michigan into Ontario’s black market.

Jackson, 35 and a first-time offender, previously pleaded guilty to importing three handguns in his underwear and illegally transferring four other firearms in 2017.

He brought 67 handguns across the border in 2017, 52 of which remain in the hands of criminals who may use them and “harm entirely innocent persons,” court heard.

And it's done with the full cooperation of the media who not only play down real events, they knowingly and deliberately continue to report bogus statistics long after they have been exposed and discredited. 

Watch the video in this article, these guys are, and will continue to be, completely unmoved and unaffected by bans..... including court imposed lifetime weapon bans in the case of the guy IN THE COP CAR of all things; there is a lesson in that and the lesson utterly fails to resonate. They are not at a shooting range, they have hidden their faces and are shooting in a densely populated residential building without the slightest regard for anyone.

 California style thinking has come to Toronto and until you take the fight to them you lose. It's too late for playgrounds and after school activities.... back when they were suggested, those doing the suggesting were branded racist. You can't have weak police, weak bail, weak courts, a weak mayor, a weak city council, a drug fuelled gang turf war, and sanctuary city status all at the same time without consequences. Thinking you can just makes it worse and the statistics prove it.

Intelligence collecting here is pretty easy too (even the media can do it when they want to), start by finding out who owns the expensive vehicles in the parking lot.

Now, why was a handgun put in a satchel and left unattended for over two hours on the back of a bloody chair? Clearly we don't have the whole storey here but I can't think of too many mitigating factors.

Contrary to popular belief, the police are some of the worst storage, transport and safety offenders. For that very reason, they have been banned from training at our club.... they don't/won't follow the rules.

Guess what would happen to any registered owner who flagrantly failed to comply with with the law in like manner. The article above could have gone on to list hundreds of similar instances of police incompetence and failure to comply with the law.... it's getting a bit old. When that weapon (and hundreds of others) are eventually recovered at a crime scene, they are deemed to have been domestically acquired and included in statistics used to justify a ban. And all good liberals said amen.

If the satchel is located, the public is asked not to remove the firearm and call 911 immediately.

Yeah like that’s gonna happen!!

Officer probably shopping for new clothes to wear while undercover...🤨

Some interesting numbers here that show the magnitude of the gang/guns problem in Toronto.

The fact that 700 people have been charged with flagrant weapons violations should be of concern. Same for the fact that virtually everyone gets bail and most repeat weapon offenders are actually on bail for previous weapons offences at the time of arrest. The shear amount of drugs in play here speaks to the motivations and the inducement to turf wars. What is there not to get and how can anyone (without an agenda) fail to grasp the realities here.

I think this is a new record:

Quote

In October, search warrants were issued in Project Topside and two Stouffville bothers were arrested on scores of gun charges and didn’t make male. One suspect was carrying $200,000 when arrested

Where exactly do you put that much cash? Or how big was his coat?

And if that wasn’t bad enough.....check out the last line:

Quote

Toronto Police have arrested six people in separate gun and gang investigations — where $3.7 million in drugs, $400,000 in cash and dozens of guns were seized — and all but two of those facing charges have made bail.

No wonder Toronto has a problem.

We have enough gun control. What we need is idiot control in the top echelons of power.

Sadly the control needed is not in the top echelons of power but rather in the courts.

This says too much...

https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/22/health/gun-deaths-school-age-children-trnd/index.html

More US school-age children die from guns than on-duty US police or global military fatalities, study finds

Gun deaths of school-age children in the United States have increased at an alarming rate, with 38,942 fatalities among 5- to 18-year-olds from 1999 to 2017, according to a new study by Florida Atlantic University's Schmidt College of Medicine.

Indeed, spikes in gun deaths over the past decade amount to epidemics, researchers said.
"It is sobering that in 2017, there were 144 police officers who died in the line of duty and about 1,000 active duty military throughout the world who died, whereas 2,462 school-age children were killed by firearms," said Dr. Charles Hennekens, the study's senior author and an academic adviser at the medical college.
The study, to be published in the American Journal of Medicine, found that children are being gunned down in staggering numbers, with the death rate six to nine times higher than other developed nations.
 
 
The gun deaths included 6,464 children between the ages of 5 and 14 years old (an average of 340 deaths per year), and 32,478 deaths in children between 15 and 18 years old (an average of 2,050 deaths per year), according to the study.
Of the deaths, 86% involved boys, the study found. Black children accounted for 41% of those killed, though in recent years they've comprised just 14% of the US population, US census data show.
"Among blacks, the annual average percent change of 9.5% for firearm-related mortality among 5 to 14-year-olds from 2013 to 2017 exceeded the 7.8% for overall deaths among 15 to 24-year-olds during the early years of the human immunodeficiency virus epidemic from 1987 to 1995," the study said.
The research should have public policy implications, Hennekens said.
"We need more analytic studies on this, but in the meanwhile, we believe that trying to combat the epidemic of homicide due to firearms without addressing firearms is like combating the epidemic of lung cancer due to cigarettes without combating cigarettes," he said.
"To me, it's tragic that this is going on."

Racial inequities have emerged, study finds

Black children between 5 and 14 years old began to experience statistically significant increases in gun deaths in 2013, the study found. And from 2013 to 2017, racial inequalities in firearm deaths between blacks and whites jumped significantly.
The study found these listed causes of death among the children: 61% from assault; 32% from suicide; 5% accidental; and 2% undetermined.
In the 5-to-14-year-old age group, accidents accounted for 12.8% of cases (830 deaths); suicide, 29.6% cases (1,912 deaths); assault, 54.8% cases (3,545 deaths); and undetermined, 2.7% (177 deaths), according to the study.
For those 15 to 18 years old, the cause of death was listed as accidental in 3.5% of cases (1,121 deaths); suicide, 32.9% (10,688 deaths); assault, 62.3% (20,247 deaths); and undetermined, 1.3% (422 deaths).
The study used data from the Multiple Cause of Death files of the US National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
The researchers found statistically significant increases in gun deaths beginning in 2009, with what they termed an epidemic among 5- to 14-year-olds. A second epidemic, beginning in 2014, involved those in the 15-to-18-year-old age group.
The epidemics continued through 2017, the most recent year of available US mortality data.
The study said the epidemic poses clinical, public health and policy challenges. It singled out the 1996 Dickey Amendment as a major factor prohibiting analytic studies on the issue.
In 1996, Congress removed $2.6 million -- the amount the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spent on gun research the year prior -- from the CDC's budget and passed the so-called Dickey Amendment, named after late Republican Rep. Jay Dickey of Arkansas. Critics said the amendment ultimately led to the CDC halting gun violence research.
A study last year in the New England Journal of Medicine found that death by gunshot was the second-highest cause of death in the United States in 2016 among children and adolescents, ages 1 to 19.
The United States led the world in 2016 in the rate of firearm deaths in youth among countries with available data. The rate in the US was 36.5 times higher than in a dozen comparable high-income countries around the world; the rate of firearm deaths was five times as high compared with a sampling of low- to middle-income countries.

Attention has been focused on the US and others .  In Canada most of the talk has been about the problems in Toronto but Toronto is not unique .  Violence seems to be the flavour for 2019, all around the world (and I am talking about violence outside of wars).
