Political Trap? December 9, 2005

Posted by Binford in Politics.

Paul Martin announced a ban on all hand guns yesterday, which I guess makes some sense because it’s law abiding citizens who are shooting up neighborhoods in Toronto.  Not gang members who smuggle and possess hand guns illegally.  Anyway, besides the fact that this ban will do nothing to curb actual gun violence, it will, as Greg Weston writes in the Toronto Sun today, make the Conservatives look like ‘right-wing gun lovers’.

Paul Martin’s plan to fight gang violence by banning all handguns that are essentially already banned certainly won’t stop shoot-outs in the streets of our cities, but the move does set a nasty political trap to ambush the Conservatives in the current election campaign.
