Canada can fuck off on this debate. We don't need nitwit opinions from Toronto.... or Australia or anywhere else. If it's a matter that involves you in some way, then comment on it, but if it doesn't, stfu. I've spent a lot of years advocating that America stay the hell out of the politics local to other countries, well it goes two ways doesn't it!
Take a valium, ...re-read the article and realize it is a Toronto newspaper columnist who has written an article for Torontonians to ponder. There is speculation all over the world about how this will go, and Canadians speculate as well.
No one is telling YOU or anyone else what side to come down on. If anything, those of you who are adamant about the 2nd amendment should quite frankly welcome his article, and view it as the cautionary tale that it is.
And as for Canadians not being affected, ...where the heck do you think all the illegal & stolen US weapons go? They end up in Canada in he hands of street thugs.
