"There is fear of retaliation if they speak to police in some sectors of the community," Pilkington said, blaming mostly gangs, some with international links, fighting over turf and drug sales and using guns imported from the United States, for the violence.

I've long said "Drug dealers will always get guns. If all else fails, they'll smuggle them into the country disguised as a routine cocaine shipment"

Or have one of their people infiltrate the military and leave the armory unlocked some night. Or just have some unemployed machinist MAKE some (Pakistanis in the Pashtun region have lots of skilled gunsmiths. And Afghan rebels were making AK-47 clones using equiptment inferior to what I can buy from Sears hardware

Blaming the US has worked for the French... or has it?

Well it has given the media a good scapegoat to target and brainwash everyone into believing... so I suppose it has worked for them in that one regard.

"don't judge all of Canada"

I don't. I like Canada. But there elements in Canada that are driving it toward a quasi-Swedish state. The same people are trying to do it to the U.S. They have to be stopped. No disrespect intended towards all Canadians. We Americans have too many leftists of our own who want to take away all our guns.
