WATCH: Liberal MPP has plan to get guns off the streets

Mike Colle wants stricter laws for illegal guns found in cars

One Toronto-area Liberal MPP is trying for the third time to get guns off the streets. Mike Colle says he wants to give police officers the power to impound a car and take away someone's driver's licence if they have an illegal gun in the vehicle.

The backbencher says federal laws are weak when it comes to this kind of thing. He says right now, it's almost impossible for police to get any kind of conviction under the Federal Criminal Code for anyone found to have an illegal handgun in their car.

Colle stresses he's not targeting legal gun owners, just those who are driving around with unregistered or stolen guns.

He believes those in his party support this idea. This is first time introducing the bill in a majority government.

    What an idiot this stupid liberal is. As if the thugs that drive around with guns in their cars care what this idiot says.

    Wow what a plan - NOT. Illegal guns should be confiscated and destroyed and the felons imprisoned. The exception should be if the guns were stolen from an owner who owned them legally they should be returned to the legal owner.

    I'd rather hear a plan to take crooked liberals off the streets, far more dangerous.

    Truly an idiotic idea! I'm sure the gangbangers with their guns will stop driving when their driver's license is taken away. As to taking their cars away they'll just steal cars. These politicians need to live in the real world.

    The politicians are so idiot that if somebody would be more idiot then that would be a cheating. Problem is that whatever they do always the good people will pay the price. They should realise that criminals does NOT care what the law is. We already have laws for illegal firearm possession and for using them. No further regulation will change anything. Crack down the illegal firearm trafficking and send the swat team on these criminals. After you shoot out few of them the rest will learn some respect.
