Ban Piercing Guns sign now

To whom it may concern,
I feel that piercing guns should be banned from every city in Canada but, since I live in Peterborough,Ontario I will focus on trying to ban them here at first.Ear piercing guns are used in Clairs,Ardenes,hairdressers and various other stores in malls. They are used for piercing ears and in some places nostrils as well. When people see me with my piercing's the main questions they ask are: "Did that hurt?","Where did you get it pierced?" and the one that makes me so mad "Did they use a gun or a needle?".Now I could understand them asking it for ear piercings but for eyebrow,tounge and labret it makes me sick. Ear piercing gun can not be sterilized and an alcohol wipe or spray does not sterilize the gun, all piercing equiptment must be autoclaved. Since the piercing guns are made of plastic they cannot be autoclaved. I hate it when I am in an Ardene's,Claire's or hairdressers and parents bring in their 1-4 year olds and get their ears gunned.This is done in a dirty mall by an un-trained mall worker at the very least in there teens or a hairdresser trained to cut haor not pierce ears.It is even worse when people get their nostrils gunned. I learned the hard way by getting my nostril gunned at a hairdresser right here in Peterborough. I would not reccomend it and when I try and educate people and tell them I have learned the hard way they ask "Where did you get your nosed gunned for$15?" I get so mad and realize that I wasted my breathe.Some will also tell me that I know nothing about piercings and their mom or dad told them that guns are good and don't do any harm.I have realized it is very hard to educate people about the dangers of piercing guns so that is why I would like to have them banned because if no one guns ears then they will have to get them done proffesionaly.

    piercing guns are bad point final and should never be used on anything even ears. They cannot be sterilized in a autoclave and therefore can cause diseases such as hepititis. Also the stud gun does not leave room for the piercing to heal because it is so
