In the last three days in Toronto, the largest city in Canada — there was twelve episodes of the shooting, which injured 16 people.
He noted that none of the victims should not perish, but have several severe injuries, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to ukrinform.ru.
According to the head of the police, more than a third of all cases of use of firearms recorded in the North-Western part of the city.
Toronto mayor John Tory called the situation unacceptable and called for a ban on handguns in the city. “I firmly believe that banning guns will help us to solve the problem of violence with firearms, which had befallen the city and its surroundings,” wrote a Tory on Twitter.
Canada has rather strict rules of circulation of weapons (although they differ depending on the province). The country is among the top ten countries by number of firearms from the citizens.
I remain firmly of the belief that a handgun ban will help us address the gun violence we are experiencing in our city and the surrounding region.
