Toronto Mayor John Tory thinks offering people $350 to turn in their guns will make the streets safer, despite a wealth of evidence proving gun buybacks simply don’t work.

The reason why is simple–gangsters who have guns have them because they want them. True North’s Andrew Lawton, who won’t be handing his gun over, explains why this is such a flawed initiative.

Support True North’s efforts to stand up for gun ownership in Canada by joining Andrew’s Heritage Club:

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
