Police forces across the country should give up their weapons

Toronto Mayor John Tory wants to know why anyone in the city needs a gun. And, it seems, a majority of Canadians agree. Now that the federal government has announced it will study a potential ban on handguns and “assault weapons” and has announced it will begin holding public consultations, there’s an opportunity to have a more robust conversation about who in society ought to be armed. If such a ban is supposed to curtail gun violence by keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, then why would we still need armed police?
