Quote:
A gunman who dressed as a policeman killed at least 16 people, including a female police officer, in the province of Nova Scotia, Canadian police say.

The 12-hour rampage ended in a car chase. The attacker is also dead.

Residents in the rural town of Portapique had been advised to lock themselves indoors after the attack began on Saturday.

Police earlier said the suspect was driving what appeared to be a police car.

The gunman shot people in several locations across Nova Scotia which meant authorities were still trying to establish the final death toll, police said on Sunday.

The police warned that there may be more victims.

That's strange, I don't remember there being a Nova Scotia in the United States. :offended:

Shouldn't residents of rural town Portapique have locked themselves in anyway? :shrug:

Now Canadians can't be smug about their gun control laws.

As long as they don't have this happening every three weeks like in the US, they can be smug all they want

How could this happen as Canada has VERY strict gun control?

Easy answer - no amount of gun control stops a madman.

So what stopped a bad guy with a gun?

A good guy with a gun!

It's too bad that there wasn't one around before 17 people died.

Thank your government for that. 17 people died including a member of the police force because of failed gun control. And failed politicians. The blood is on their hands and theirs alone.


:olo:

I think the death toll is up to 19 now. I also read someone or something saying that the police only announced that there's an impersonator with a fake RCMP car pulling people over and executing them exclusively via Twitter, but I'm seriously hoping that is not entirely true. In any case, pretty fucked up. Guy just sounded like a straight nutjob. Apparently he burned his own house down, then went to his ex-gf's house and killed her and her bf, then burned their house down, then went on a killing spree... crazy shit
