Anti-gun activist's son arrested
Police find two guns hidden in man's pants

STAFF REPORTER

The son of a Toronto anti-gun violence activist faces multiple gun-related charges after he was arrested with two sawed-off rifles hidden down his pants.

Police from the Emergency Task Force surrounded the house of Kadfi Farquharson, 23, on Duncanwoods Rd. in the Finch and Islington area just before 4 p.m. yesterday after being called to the area by a man who said someone had tried to shoot him.

Farquharson's mother, Julia Farquharson, is a founding member of United Mothers Opposing Violence Everywhere (UMOVE), and speaks to dozens of groups across the city to plead for an end to gun violence.

Yesterday the man called police after getting into an argument with a group of four men. He told police that after turning his back on the men, someone shot at him once. Police aren't sure whether the victim knew his shooter or what brought about the alleged attack.

When Kadfi Farquharson emerged from his house police searched him and found two sawed-off rifles concealed in his pants. Police also arrested a 17-year-old boy with ammunition for a high-powered rifle.

"Our belief is that these two men were part of the group of four that argued with the victim," said Staff Sgt. Ian Lamon of Toronto police.

Along with the two guns, police also recovered one shell casing from a bullet.

Julia Farquharson's oldest son, Kadfi Farquharson's brother, Segun, 24, was shot in the back and killed in a parking lot outside his home in May 2001 after being lured outside by a phone call. The murder has not been solved.

Julia Farquharson also worked with the Humber Summit Resource Centre, a United Way agency, on after-school programs for North York children.

Following Toronto's increase in gun violence in 2005 the mother of three said police need to get more serious about crime among young black men.

"They should be looking at these lives as if it were their own lives," she said.

Julia Farquharson also said police should institute spot checks for guns in high-crime neighbourhoods, along the lines of roadside R.I.D.E. programs.

Anyone with more information should call police at 416-808-3100 or Crime Stoppers at (416) 222-TIPS.

Sounds like that activist needs to spend more time trying to clean up their own home, rather than the homes of others.

Everyone who said sobriety checkpoints *weren't* a slippery slope apparently never met this broad.

Yes, I know, Canada != U.S., but the socialists here have to get their ideas from *somewhere*.......


ETA: "Anyone with more information should call police at........" Wouldn't it be funny if "someone with more information" were to call police and tip them off about the fucker's meth lab, or that he's been illegally manufacturing MGs......

So instead of putting more focus on the hypocrisy of this bitch, the article's writer focuses more on giving her a chance to spew more of her filthy propaganda. Fucking moron motherfuckers.

How come all of these idiots that get caught have "sawed off" stuff? Are they more evil or something?

I guess since he was carrying two rifles in his pants he didn't want to walk like he had two peg legs.

The 'rifle' I carry in my pants is 'sawed off', I thought most everybody did that. Now how this guy was blessed with TWO is beyond me.

OK, sorry I had to make a lame man part joke.
