Gun laws don’t work

The Province - - EDITORIAL -

When it comes to gun con­trol, I agree with U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

Chicago has the tough­est gun con­trol in the coun­try, but also has the high­est mur­der rates due to gun vi­o­lence. Even in Canada, we have a high in­stance of mur­ders due to gun vi­o­lence de­spite more re­stric­tive gun laws.

Ex­am­ples in­clude the shoot­ing of Ab­bots­ford Po­lice Const. John David­son and all the gang­land shoot­ings.

If some­one wants to kill some­one with a gun, they are not con­cerned about do­ing it with a reg­is­tered firearm. We may as well ban knives, cars or any­thing that can be used as a weapon. Glenn Nordal, Lan­g­ley
