Guns, guns guns! That is the talk of the town not only in the U.S. but as well north of the border, specifically here in Toronto. 14 shootings occurred over the long weekend into as late Monday night. Again, Mayor John Tory is advocating for handgun bans, Temba explains the gun laws and restrictions already in place and why a handgun ban will not work to reduce crime. A man who stabbed three Canadian soldiers at a military center will not face any charges for his crimes and may be able to go out to walk freely in the public again. Temba explains why people with extreme mental health issues who do these heinous acts need to face the consequences. A Toronto researcher named Kang Lee is developing an app to monitor your blood pressure, the way that it will be monitored is simple and something that pretty much everyone does nowadays.
