    This is so sad. I hate to say it, but I think it is only a matter of time before this happens again in the U.S. - especially with the reported increase in guns sales recently.

    Horrible to see this happening in Canada. I hope this is a one off and that Canada does not become desensitized to such insane tragedy. Rob

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a total ban on 1,500 models and variants of "military-grade assault weapons" in Canada, effective immediately. Trudeau remarked, Canadians deserve more than thoughts and prayers. Gun dealers will be able to return these weapons from their inventories to the manufacturers. Gun owners will have 2 years in which to dispose of all such weapons. Parliament will legislate "fair compensation" for gun owners.

    Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said, These guns make it easier to commit mass murder. The culture around their fetishization makes our country inherently more dangerous for the people most vulnerable, and that is women and girls.

    Has the Prime Minister provided a definition of "military-grade assault weapons"?

    How, exactly, are women and girls more vulnerable to bullets than the male of the species?

    Femicide is statistically significant. To say that bullets kill men equally well is a red herring. However, if that argument makes you feel better about it, who am I to question it?
