I believe that's precisely what he was attempting to do...

Let's ask Staff-Inspector Mike Earl...
...who headed up Toronto’s Holdup Squad...


Quote:
There is one strategy that has proven extremely effective... alas, in today's increasingly politically-correct society, it's radioactive to even discuss...

In 2013, when police did 196,907 street checks — while carding was increasingly under attack by its critics — there were 22 gun murders in Toronto.

In 2018, when police did none, there were 51, an increase of 132%.

With a month to go this year, there have been 38 gun murders, lower than in 2018, but still 73% higher than in 2013.
Links' bold.

Illinois girl, 14, tried to rob woman who shot her in chest, both charged, Chicago police say

Quote:
A teenage girl who was shot in the chest in a Chicago neighborhood Friday night is now facing an attempted robbery charge after officials said she tried to rob a woman she was meeting for a sale.

The Chicago Police Department said in a news release on Saturday the incident happened around 5:45 p.m. in the city's Little Village neighborhood, when 21-year-old Araceli Diaz met with the 14-year-old girl after the teenager arranged the meeting to buy a dog.

When the 14-year-old met up with Diaz, officials said the teen pulled out a pellet gun, struck the 21-year-old on the head with it and tried to take the dog without paying for it.

...

In response, Diaz then allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot the girl in the chest.
She was physically attacked. It doesn't matter if the object used was a BB gun or a sledge hammer. She was defending herself.

Gun Confiscation Comes to Virginia

Quote:
Next year, Democrats will control both houses of Virginia’s state Legislature as well as its governorship. On November 18, State Sen. Dick Saslaw introduced a bill that he will sponsor in the 2020 legislative session. That bill will outlaw not only the sale or transfer but also the possession of certain firearms.

...

Thus, every rifle of the common AR-15 design and a great many pistols and shotguns in common use for personal defense, target shooting, and hunting would be banned.

Not only would they be banned, but because SB 16 makes it illegal to possess such firearms, they also would have to be either surrendered to or seized by police authorities in the jurisdiction in which they are located.

‘They’ve Awoken a Giant’: 20+ Virginia Counties Become 2A Sanctuaries Overnight

Quote:
Virginia gun owners have gathered by the hundreds at Board of Supervisors meetings in counties across the state to send a message to the newly elected Democratic legislature in Richmond.

As of this writing, 23 counties and towns have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries since Michael Bloomberg flipped the state legislature from red to blue earlier this month. Second Amendment sanctuaries exist in many states across the country, but no state has seen so many in such a short span of time.

“It’s sending a message to Richmond saying we don’t want any more gun control out here,” Philip Van Cleave told GunsAmerica. Van Cleave is the President of the gun-rights group Virginia Citizens Defense League, which has been fighting for Second Amendment rights in Virginia since 1994, when they helped turned the state from may-issue to shall-issue.

How was this possible?! There was a law!!!

What could possibly go wrong?

Remember, he was under a weapons prohibition at the time of the double murder...
Christopher Husbands, the man who opened fire inside Eaton Centre’s food court has been sentenced to life in prison but he could be eligible for parole in as little as 16 months.

Americans Own 423 Million Firearms…And Climbing

Quote:
The NSSF, the firearms industry’s trade group, has released some interesting production and other statistics they’ve accumulated from the ATF. A couple of statistics are sure to cause Moms and media members to lunge for their fainting couches.

Imagine the tremors of terror that will reverberate through Giffords and Everytown at the news that Americans own well over 400 million firearms (shhh…don’t tell them the real number is probably north of half a billion).

Or that, among those hundreds of millions of guns is almost 18 million modern sporting rifles…otherwise known to the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex and the anti-gun media…as “assault weapons.”
The punch line:

Quote:
The report also shows that as lawful firearms ownership in America continues to grow, criminal and unintentional misuse of firearms is falling. During the 25-year period covered in this report (1993–2017) the violent crime rate has decreased by 48.6 percent and unintentional firearm-related fatalities have declined by 68 percent.
Prog heads exploding...

MLB Star Teaches Sons About Guns In Case Sanders And Socialism Win. Celebs Rip Him. He Hammers Them.

Quote:
This week, former MLB baseball star Aubrey Huff triggered outrage on social media after he tweeted a picture from a gun range, adding he was training his sons to shoot in the “unlikely event @Bernie Sanders beats @realDonald Trump in 2020. In which case knowing how to effectively use a gun under socialism will be a must.” That elicited hostile responses from comedienne Kathy Griffin and actor Tom Arnold, both off which received blunt responses from Huff, as The Daily Mail reported.
Bold mine.

Am I missing something here? This pair fired a shotgun at a police officer and were not even charged with assault or attempted murder in relation to that offense?

Putting bums like this behind bars is how you solve gun violence. More laws will have zero impact when we fail miserably to enforce the laws already in force.
