Drug buyers driving gun crime

CBC News:

Anyone who buys illegal drugs is contributing to the gun violence that is plaguing Toronto, the city’s police chief says.

Later in the story, police chief Bill Blair is quoted as saying,

“I think everybody who uses illegal drugs and gives money into these things bears some responsibility for the violence that’s taking place.”

I guess it’s safer for him to blame drug users than to blame the politicians who have created the black market with their outright ban on drugs.

The story goes on to say

As a result, Blair says part the police strategy to curb gun violence will be measures to cut off the demand for illegal drugs.

Cut off demand? Good luck with that.
