Danforth shooting victims call for ban on handguns, Report

Families and victims of the Danforth shooting are calling for a Canada-wide ban on private ownership of handguns and assault rifles.

A group of people gathered for a news conference Friday, which is the seven-month anniversary of the attack in Toronto.

On July 22, Faisal Hussain went on a shooting rampage that left two people dead and 13 others hurt.

Hussain later died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound during a police takedown.

John Tory and many attended the news conference, with Tory sharing a letter of support.

The families are criticizing the ‘lack of action’ by governments following the mass shooting.

Organizers are also asking people to sign the e-petition to support the ban.

They are calling on the prime minister’s office to change gun laws to prevent similar attacks in the future.
