APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Bloomberg Going Global

Friday, June 15, 2007

On Monday, Canada’s CBC News reported on Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” coalition turning its sights toward the Great White North.  Anti-gun Toronto Mayor David Miller, an advocate of a ban on private handgun ownership, is being courted by coalition member, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, to join its ranks. 

Toronto has recently been gripped by a series of shootings and has reinforced Mayor Miller’s longstanding contention that the United States is partly to blame.  Miller noted, “The federal government has to start speaking up with the United States.  Their lack of common-sense gun control means that guns flood across our border and are used in crimes here, and it's time to put an end to that."
