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.
