The Gangs of Toronto – Part 2
More fatal shootings in Toronto bring more blame, directed at the US. I think that the problem is Canada’s own “lack of gun laws”. In the United States, today, we have more gun laws than we have “ever” had, in the past. Now that there’s a gun problem for our friends to the North, they seem to want to blame somebody.
They’re blaming the wrong people! If the lack of gun laws in the US was the problem, they would have had this a long time ago. My opinion is that the “tightening” of gun laws in the US is the problem.
I posted about “The Gangs of Toronto“, back in August. From the few comments that the post got, it’s plain to see the problem.
The last time that I was in Toronto was in 1987. I wasn’t in the city for too long, but my impression of the city is that is was one of the most beautiful cities that I’d ever seen. In contrast to “all” of the US cities, Toronto seemed to be almost spotless and “new”. I couldn’t believe that a city of that size could be so “clean”.
Would I go back to Toronto, now? If I had a really good reason to, I might. I would personally feel a lot safer visiting Chicago, where I grew up, though.
