Dodge This Bullet

How long before Toronto experiences this? Not long, if Dudley Laws succeeds in his goal of creating his own militia:
"What we want is for the Prime Minister and his Cabinet to empower and give the community the capacity to make the immediate and intense intervention that is required to deal with our young people," he said.
I just cannot imagine a community intervening in an armed dispute without arms themselves, you know, never bring a megaphone or a placard to a gunfight. So, I presume that the esteemed Mr. Laws is seeking the authority for the community to be armed. Led by him, I suppose.
