Toronto Councillor seeks ban on bullets in wake of Eaton centre shooting
The sale of bullets could be banned within city limits if Councillor Adam Vaughan has his way.
In the wake of the Eaton Centre shooting, Vaughan (Ward 20, Trinity-Spadina) is exploring city zoning bylaws that could prohibit the storage, sale and use of bullets in Toronto, getting around normal gun control restrictions which fall under federal and provincial jurisdiction.
“If we can’t ban guns, why not ban bullets?” he said. “Just like you can’t have a cobra in your backyard … why have bullets in the city? If we make it harder and harder to get those bullets we might stop them flying around the city.”
