Olivia Chow’s mayoral rivals — including Mayor Rob Ford — were quick to shoot down her push for a handgun ban Monday.
Chow promised Monday to seek a ban on pistols and revolvers, insisting the country requires more stringent gun control.
“We have a mayor that for the last four years justified the use of guns,” said Chow, who made her pledge during a press conference at Ephraim’s Place in North York.
“He opposed the long-gun registry and what I want to do is work with big city mayors to tighten control so there is no illegal guns coming from the States.”
Hours later, Ford — who remains the subject of an ongoing Toronto Police investigation and refuses to meet with Project Brazen 2 detectives — issued a statement accusing Chow of “grandstanding” and claiming he’s given cops the resources to “clean up our streets.”
Former mayor David Miller advocated unsuccessfully for a handgun ban during his tenure.

A Florida jury has slammed a tobacco company with $23.6 billion in punitive damages in a lawsuit filed by the widow of a longtime smoker who died of lung cancer in 1996.
The case is one of thousands filed in Florida after the state Supreme Court in 2006 tossed out a $145 billion class action verdict. That ruling also said smokers and their families need only prove addiction and that smoking caused their illnesses or deaths.
The damages a Pensacola jury awarded Friday to Cynthia Robinson after a four-week trial come in addition to $16.8 million in compensatory damages.
Robinson individually sued R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. in 2008 on behalf of her late husband, Michael Johnson Sr. Her attorneys said the punitive damages are the largest of any individual case stemming from the original class action lawsuit.
“The jury wanted to send a statement that tobacco cannot continue to lie to the American people and the American government about the addictiveness of and the deadly chemicals in their cigarettes,” said one of the woman’s attorneys, Christopher Chestnut.
