Just curious, but if an internet petition in Canada got a mere 16,000 signatures to end gun control, would it get similar positive news attention? Here is the story
from the Globe and Mail:
Urbanites' call for ban on guns hits a deaf ear in Ottawa
From Thursday's Globe and Mail
More than 16,000 people signed his Internet petition to ban handguns since he first made the appeal on Monday, Mayor David Miller told a Scarborough business audience yesterday. "Letters of support for this long-overdue action have also been pouring into my office from the moment the public became aware of this cause," he added.
The cause also captured attention at Queen's Park, with both Premier Dalton McGuinty and Attorney-General Chris Bentley voicing support.
"We'll take a look at what more we might do," the Premier said. "But obviously, when the feds have got responsibility for criminal law, there are some severe restrictions in terms of how far we can go and what we can do." . . .
