    We miss a lot about Canada because it is generally a boring country. They are helpful around the world, but they are not important around the world....

    Now, after the shooting in Canada today, we begin to see more and more gun crime happening in a country that we are told has gun control...

    Toronto reels after weekend gun violence

    Officials in Toronto say more will be done to reduce gun violence after 11 people were shot, two fatally, over a holiday weekend.

    The weekend of violence included a deadly shooting on Queen Street, a commercial artery, that killed two men and left one woman wounded.

    The shooting happened on Saturday just before 8pm local time (12am GMT).

    Gun violence in Canada's largest city appears to be taking place at a higher rate than normal.

    If only the Canadians were allowed to carry this never would have happened.

    How fast did the police respond...oh yeah, not fast enough to keep 2 people from being killed and 13 being shot......

    And what has happened as more Americans carry guns....?

    We went from 200 million guns in private hands in the 1990s and 4.7 million people carrying guns for self defense in 1997...to close to 400-600 million guns in private hands and over 17 million people carrying guns for self defense in 2017...guess what happened...


    -- gun murder down 49%

    --gun crime down 75%

    --violent crime down 72%

    Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware

    Compared with 1993, the peak of U.S. gun homicides, the firearm homicide rate was 49% lower in 2010, and there were fewer deaths, even though the nation’s population grew. The victimization rate for other violent crimes with a firearm—assaults, robberies and sex crimes—was 75% lower in 2011 than in 1993. Violent non-fatal crime victimization overall (with or without a firearm) also is down markedly (72%) over two decades.

    It's an isolated incident and not terror. Woe be Canada if it was. They protect terrorists more than gays.

    Yes....the democrats in those cities have controlled them for decades so they are real crap holes. Canada has been lucky that they don't have the race guilt that democrats have, driving an insane desire to let violent criminals out of jail...

    Mostly due to gang and drug violence and suicide in the US. Otherwise, the homicide rates are about the same.

    None of which makes Canada any less safer when compared to the USA.

    Very colorful if unconvincing meme there.
