Mr. McGuinty suggests a ban on handguns, again

In response to the unfortunate murder of a high school student yesterday, some have called for metal detectors to be installed in high risk schools. While I don't believe that's the answer, Mr. McGuinty has once again used this incident to make an appeal to ban all handguns.
Gun ban needed, not school metal detectors: McGuinty

Ontario Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty said Wednesday that he does not want to see the provinces' schools resort to installing metal detectors and having uniformed security officers patrol the halls in the wake of Tuesday's fatal stabbing at a Toronto high school.

Such a move, he said, would amount to the Americanization of schools in Ontario.

“I see that as an absolute last resort,” Mr. McGuinty told reporters during an election campaign stop.

Instead, he said, Ontario needs to distinguish itself from the United States by imposing an outright ban on hand guns.

“Let's ban handguns in Ontario,” he said. “Let's ban handguns across the country. Let's declare war against handguns.”

A 16-year-old Scarborough youth was stabbed to death on Tuesday on a walkway leading from Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute.
Ammm, just checking with the folks that write his talking points for him, but, ummm... you guys did realize that the student was stabbed, not shot... right?

Trying to play politics and insert their unrelated pet issue over the tragic murder of a student... I don't like it one little bit.
