Who needs a gun?

No one needs a gun. When I was growing up in the city of Toronto not long after WWII I didn’t think anyone had one. And with several news papers publishing two or three editions a day I’m certain I’d have known if they did. I do recall that when I’d gotten in my teens there were reports that some old guy not far from where I lived shot somebody with a rifle. Years later Toronto mayor Miller reacted to a shooting that was the first of string of hand gun shootings that have been increasing in frequency to the present. I recall fifteen years ago after a young person had been shot a few miles away a neighbour asking “Does that mean every kid has a gun?” Well less than 2 weeks ago a 15 year old left his school and was shot dead by another 15 year old.
