    Wow.  That is awful.

    Prayers out for all the victims and families.

    How can this be? Aren't guns illegal?

    That is horrible, my sympathies to the victims families.

    How did it go on for 12 hours? that is nearly unheard of in this day and age.

    I suppose now we watch as Trudeau tries to legislate the unlegislatable and out virtue signal the likes of Ardern.
    Law abiding Canadians are inevitably the losers.

    Handguns basically illegal for the average person and rifles can be difficult in Canada

    IIRC handguns with 4” of barrel or less are banned as is carrying for SD.  Guns are still pretty available in Canada.  They are all supposed to be registered but when the law went into effect they got a super low % compliance and almost no Police enforcement.

    Guy suits up and cars up in a way to appear to be a police officer, and goes on what appears to be a random killing spree.

    This is a weird one, for sure.

    Tragic story.
    And a 12 hour rampage? Or was it a short rampage and then a long pursuit?
    The authorities will eventually sort things out (I hope) but it's still a tragic story. Prayers out to the victims.

    And yeah, Canada has some restrictive laws but they still have guns (for now)

    And of course the obvious solution is more anti gun laws.

    Trudeau just announced his solution for the problem. All military style assault rifles will be banned! He has spoken!
