Comparing statistics of two countries' rates is rife with potential for error.

The only way to do a reasonable comparison is crime statistics before the ban and after. When you look at those statistics, it is obvious that gun bans have no effect at best, but are more likely to result in increased violent crime.

Reason & logic have no affect on the liberal mind. It's all about feelings, recycling, unicorns, rainbows & stuff like that. If you plan to have any luck convincing them, it will have to be a carefully crafted emotional appeal. You will probably have better luck teaching your dog to quote Shakespeare.

That's not that difficult. You should hear my Weimy recite MacBeth.

You have to keep in mind that Toronto is not like the rest of Canada. It's More like New Yawk or Chicago as far as gun ownership is involved.
However Miss Dimwitt might change her mind if she WAS ACTUALY robbed or worse, raped. Having those opinions is all very nice, UNTIL that happens to HER!

A liberal is a conservative that hasn't been mugged yet.

Wow, lots of resurgance on a bumped thread. The op has not been around for a while and probably won't ever let us know what the outcome was. But, some good points here. Seems like we are all in agreement.

I am a retired Maine chief of police. I would go to the Maine Chiefs of Police Association and ask them where the Canadian stats can be had, they have connections with the Canadian Provinces and their stats, good luck and let me know how you made out,

Chief Jean F. Pouliot (Ret.)

be forewarned Canadian stats are tainted and rife with inaccuracy - the stats only reflect what they want you to hear - I have first hand knowledge that violent crimes are not dissipating due to a lack of firearms in fact they are actually on the increase in most places it's the reporting that is askew.

anyone who thinks its safer here is misled - we have a small population nation wide, several states have the population of our entire country...

Toronto is a great city, and I go there fairly often on business. Besides that, I am a huge hockey fan and read the Toronto papers, The Sun, the Globe & Mail and the Star regularly. She is delusional if she thinks Toronto has a low crime rate and is safe. Lots of gang violence and shootings.

Also be warned if you try to snatch my daughter from her Mother. My daughter is armed with a 38 sp, and is carrying!

Default Canada.....

Every province from Ontario eastwards is anti-gun. Every province west of Ontario is pro-gun.
