A few shootings in Canada recently. This one seems to be a spree shooter, targeting homeless people. Tragic.

One of Canada's worst mass shootings took place in 2020, when a gunman driving a fake police car shot 13 people and killed another nine in a fire he set in Portapique, Nova Scotia.

How is it possible I missed this story? Maybe it didn’t fit the narrative of a kinder, gentler (than USA) Canada?

Seems so.

Just a normal day in North America.

Maybe you were busy. It was widely reported on, including right here on Japan Today.

Any Canadians out there? If you are homeless and shot and wounded, is medical treatment free?

Exactly, which is why we do not see the false outrage that is actually a disguise for American bashing.

Looks like Secret service vehicles??

How did he get the weapon when it's against the law to do so?

As I have been saying, if you are hellbent on wanting to kill someone, you will always find a way. Law or No law.

No. It was reported by every major news outlet.

Smuggled from south of the border.

Smuggled from south of the border.

Is smuggling also not illegal?

Of course, but it happens. just imagine if it wasn’t so easy to get guns from the neighbors. Maybe you’d see more knife crime.

Haaa Nemui

Maybe you’d see more knife crime.

Um, yep.

Knife, gun, hammer, car. You name it. Criminals will always use some weapon of some sort to kill people.

It's not the weapon, it's the people wielding the weapon.

It's not the weapon, it's the people wielding the weapon.

So why do people always choose guns when other methods are more readily available?

So why do we have seatbelts? If you want to drive dangerously you will.

*So you admit it's the person, not the weapon*.

-5 ( +4 / -9 )

This upsets every Canadian when guns are used in an unlawful manner and people are killed. That’s why we try to improve our laws to posses guns.

”Open carry” in Canada has a completely different meaning than United States.

in Canada it means you have an open beer and you are walking down the street.

please answer my question.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

It's not the weapon, it's the people wielding the weapon.

It's the person and the weapon. A person with an AR-15 can kill more people than a person with a butter knife.

I don't know why this has to be explained over and over.

It’s the recipient, not the explanation.

You’re making an apples to oranges argument on this one.

No. I’m trying to talk sense. I see my mistake.

Well, that attempt failed miserably.

That is a whole lot of bullets in a fairly straight line grouping. Glad the police are safe.

I know. But thanks for trying anyway.

You tried, kudos.

Glad the police are safe.

Without a doubt.

you will always find a way. Law or No law.

the above leaves out, once again, that the easier places make it for just about anyone to get a gun, the more guns in circulation, and the easier for angry and unstable individuals, including people on terrorist watch lists, to get a gun.

Canadians are Americans by the way.

-6 ( +4 / -10 )

Just another typical day in friendly... wait what? Canada? I thought they had tough gun laws there. Oh my god! Who would've thought that bad guys will get guns regardless of the law?

-6 ( +3 / -9 )

Sir….you failed the square peg in the round hole test.

You have NO idea of the world.

Do us all a favour and go away

It's not the weapon, it's the people wielding the weapon.

Americans kill each other a LOT more than other nations. They appear to be a particularly murderous lot - and for some reason think guns should be readily available to this particularly murderous lot.

Canada has the right idea making guns more illegal. Our right-wingers here on JT were freaking out over it a while back, and Joe Rogan has started an active campaign against the country as a result of their effort to enact more gun laws. Yet Canadians want stricter gun laws exactly because of these kind of shootings.

Which is how logical countries do things.

9 ( +11 / -2 )

Understand….there is a different thinking between us and them,

They have more guns than people in their country..

4 ( +7 / -3 )

As I have been saying, if you are hellbent on wanting to kill someone, you will always find a way. 

I guess that's true, but the degree of how hellbent you are and the ease of getting a gun makes a difference. We read of mass shootings around the world, but we read of many more in a country where access to guns is very easy.

Every citizen of the US is American.

True..

As every citizen of Canada, Mexico, CentralAmerica and SouthAmerica are Americans too..

Because America is a whole continent with more than 35 countries..

Not a sole country..

Not agree?.. Geography books never lie..

Like it or not..
