Toronto police raids

From the CBC

"About 600 police officers from several forces carried out dozens of raids with "military precision" in northwest Toronto early Thursday in the largest operation of its kind in the city, the police chief says. The pre-dawn raids on up to 60 places resulted in 78 people being charged with offences ranging from attempted murder to drug and firearms trafficking to membership in a criminal gang. "

Good job, I just hope the courts do the right thing as well and hand out more than a slap on the wrist.

The police seized 20 guns during the raids including a couple of full auto weapons (mac 10's).

A couple of questions have to be asked; how many of these guns were registered and would a handgun ban as proposed by former PMPM have worked?

Questions I don't think you will see being asked by the CBC or the Star.

Go Oilers!!
