    So.... a muslim terrorist in Canada with connections to gangs, can get a gun and do a mass shooting. Meanwhile....Canada has extreme gun control targeted at people who would not use their guns for crime.....

    Leftist thinking at it's best...


    Toronto shooter died of self-inflicted gunshot wound: source

    Meanwhile, a source familiar with the case says that the gun Hussain used in Sunday’s mass shooting was likely obtained from a “gang-related source.”

    That must be why Canada has so many mass shootings.

    No.... they average one a year.....because their criminals who have guns do not choose to walk into public places and shoot them up.

    See.... their criminals get guns, as the rising gun crime rate in Canada shows, they just don't have the urge to shoot up strangers in a public place..... and if they did, their gun control laws obviously can't stop them.

    Maybe 6 a year in a country of over 320 million people with about 75 people killed each year.....lawn mowers kill more people than that..... and if the press would stop glamorizing the shootings we also would have fewer.

    I heard about this guy up in Canada who killed a person illegally -- even tho the law clearly states its illegal to kill someone -- and this guy still did it..

    Whelp, so much for that "don't murder people" law -- time to get rid of it.
