Nicholson on Gun Laws: It's the Liberals Fault
Hilarious. Absolutely hilarious.
Ms. Jennings has the perfect response.
Rob, I have a newsflash for you. Sentencing "after the fact" does not stem the incredible ongoing use of hand guns currently in effect in our major cities. Getting to the root of the problem is the answer.
The key would be to assist inner-city programs that target high risk children in families that are subject to such violence. Another key would be to fund task forces that target gangs, etc. such as Dalton McGuinty just announced for the Golden Horseshoe. McGuinty's plan to meet with the Governors of the border states is another key to stopping the flow of illegal weapons coming in from our neighbour to the south. After the fact legislation is not the answer to ending gun related crimes.
Why isn't the Minister of Justice for the country starting such initiatives? Especially one that represents four international bridges as part of his constituency?
Blaming gun crimes and deaths of 11 year olds on Liberal Senators is a stretch at best Mr. Nicholson.
