    Default Five People Killed in Shooting at Quebec City Mosque

    What the hell is going on with society? Prayers go out to all the people involved in this massacre. I have a feeling this will have a far reaching effect on all gun owners much like the Polytechnique massacre in Montreal.

    Once again a sad example of how the world is screwed up. My guess is this is an extremist group. Que the usual chicken littles and the liberals will attack peaceful law abiding gun owners instead. The AK47 is already a prohibited weapon isn't it? This will puff up the coming gun control committee and Goodale. Non of which will solve the problem or help those poor people who were massacred.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    ...and a number of people also their lives ( 6 dead and 8 wounded). They were people like you and me, sons,daughters , etc...
    I can't imagine what their family and friends are going through right now. I think that's a little more important than the public's or government's possible actions regarding firearms.

    Here's another link with more information. Even more people hurt than the original report.

    This is probably the most hippy left thing I've ever said but one thing that makes me proud to be Canadian is the religious freedom we all have, be it Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc. It's brutal that this has happened, sickening that it happened here, but it's been amazing to see how Canadians of all political sides and religions are showing support to those effected by this crime and to the Muslim community. Whoever you believe in and pray to we are all here together. I have traveled a lot and it's always a good feeling to know that I live in a country that yes we have we don't all agree on and we can all argue politics and policy til we are blue in the face, but we are safe and free to believe in what we choose to believe in and to worship without fear.
    I hope this doesn't change our already overly strong gun laws, and I hope people stop the us and them mentality that exists.
    That rug really tied the room together

    They said it "looked like an AK-47" could be an AK, could be an SKS, could be a lot of things.

    This is so sad, exciting of violence to invoke terror is terrorism no matter who commits it or who it targets, no matter what the motive this was a horrible event perpetrated by horrible people during one of the most solemn times.

    This is a sad day for Canada

    The new normal now when the massacres happen is for politicians to "Tweet" how sorry they are. If the body count is high enough they might even express.......outrage. Yup, that's going to fix the problem. Everybody tweeted. All good now.

    Such a sad state of affairs that social media replaces actual empathy.

    I am so glad that this is a very rare occurrence here, not that it is ok, it is not.

    i was born and raised in St-Foy where this happened, have family and friends who live minutes from the massacre. It's time to reverse this movement. Stuff like this is why Trump got elected. Not saying he isn't an idiot but this is big part of why he got elected leader of the free world.

    The hate needs to stop, all of it, just live and let live. People are just trying to make the lives of their children better than they had, this is a 99.9% reality, it is the 0.1% on all sides that screw up the whole thing. That 0.1% needs to go so the rest of us can live in peace, be is Christian, Athiest, Muslim, Catholic, Aboriginal, Jew, etc.
