Ontario Premier Doug Ford says he is against a Toronto city council-request to ban the sale of handguns and handgun ammunition within Toronto’s boundaries. “I wouldn’t support a ban on handguns,” Ford said. “There are a lot of legal, responsible handgun owners. We have to refocus all our resources going after the bad guys, not the good guys.”
The big question is this: How does Ford, an ex-drug dealer and overall idiotic schmuck, define “good” and “bad”? Should his ex-cronies who are still in the business of dealing drugs be allowed to carry loaded handguns to protect themselves from, I don’t know, the police who might want to charge them and put them in jail?
The fact is, I don’t have a problem with people collecting guns. I don’t understand it, but I don’t have a problem with it. After all, I used to collect stamps. I’m sure licking stamp glue has caused its fair share of fatalities. Just that the issue has been under reported. But pointing a stamp at someone has, as far as I know, not killed anybody–unless seeing a picture of the Queen of England has scared someone to death!
But let me back up a minute and tell you how I am actually in tune with Ford here.
What I propose is that we don’t ban handguns at all. So in that way I guess you can say that I actually agree with something that Premier Ford has said. (Will wonders ever cease?) Instead what I propose is this: We ban the sale of all ammunition. You know, the bullets that would go into the guns and that do the actual killing when shot into someone.
In that way, the gun owners who wanted to shoot their guns could hold them out, aim them at whatever target they choose, even at people, and shout, “Bang! Bang!” as they pulled the trigger, kind of like kids do. And if you need a gun with bullets well, let’s face it, you are no more than a big baby so shouting “bang!” should come naturally to you. I mean come on, whatever happened to fair fights, you know with bare knuckles? If someone has pissed you off that much, be adult about it and take them on–with your fists, not with bullets.
Guns. That’s the coward’s way out of a problem.
The fact is, if you support Ford and oppose the move to keep people in Toronto safe from bullets, you are, in my humble opinion, no more than a big baby, a bully and a coward. Oh, and an idiotic schmuck. Otherwise known as an asshole. In other words, you are a kindred spirit with Premier Ford.
