OTTAWA (CP) - The Canadian Press has learned that Prime Minister Paul Martin will venture into violence-plagued Toronto on Thursday to announce a sweeping ban on handguns.

Martin is scheduled to visit Toronto's troubled Jane-Finch area to make a "safer communities announcement." Liberal sources have confirmed the announcement includes a ban on handguns.

Handguns are already severely restricted in Canada and a handgun registry has been in force for more than 60 years.

Gunfire was responsible for the deaths of 50 of the 74 murders so far this year in the city.

The rash of shootings prompted city police to launch a gun amnesty program in November, during which they collected 261 guns and more than 1,500 rounds of ammunition

I still shed a tear that I know that many guns were destroyed

It's Time the Western provinces became states. Hell we might even take the maritimes.

Didn't Martin just get tossed out?

Martin just announced that handguns will become prohibited and will have to be turned in similar to Australia.

Everyone's known it. Those who came out and said it were simply "paranoid"

I'm sorry, but I don't want any of that kind of thought in my country. They can keep it. Keep their border, and make their own stupid rules. Keep their stupid politicans in Canada, we already got enough stupid Politicans of our own.
