When will Canada sue the US like Mexico has?

As gun violence rises in Canada, weapons from the U.S. complicate gun control efforts
TORONTO, Canada — A few weeks ago, the Rev. Sky Starr led a funeral in northwest Toronto for a 24-year-old shooting victim. Among the mourners, she noticed a young man.

"I saw this youth was kneeling at the casket, he was praying," Starr recalls. The next morning, she received a call letting her know the same young mourner was dead. He'd been shot and killed overnight.
"Our problem in Toronto [is] handguns from the United States," Toronto Police Service Deputy Chief Myron Demkiw told Canadian parliamentarians during hearings on gun violence in February. In his city last year, he said, "86% of crime handguns [that are] able to be sourced were from the United States."

Our Southern neighbor is suing the major gun manufacturers in the US over their marketing practices that send guns flooding over the border. Now our Northern neighbor is complaining about our lax gun laws and proliferation of guns into their country. Half a dozen other nations have the US on a travel watch over our gun problem.

When will we as a country make that first step to recovery and admit that we have a problem? When will that minority of gun loving people here realize that they have been deceived by a money grubbing industry that has lied to them about their product?

GUNS DON'T MAKE YOU SAFE and now they are making our entire country a pariah just a step above Putin's Russia.
