    SHOOTINGS - NOVA SCOTIA

    So sorry to hear the news this morning amongst the tragedies of COVID -19 comes
    a gunman disguised as a police officer who went on a rampage across the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, shooting people in their homes and setting fires, leaving 16 people dead on Sunday, in the deadliest such attack in the country’s history.
    Officials said the suspected shooter was also dead.
    RIP to all our Canadian friends our thoughts are with the families and friends and also the Police in Canadaicon at this very sad time.

    'Tonight my men and I have been through hell and back again, but the look on your faces when we let you out of the hall - we'd do it all again tomorrow.' Major Chris Keeble's words to Goose Green villagers on 29th May 1982 - 2 PARA

    Apparently this person was a dentist. He killed four people in a house and then he just went rogue. Very sad event. No reason given so far as to motives, intents etc. My families sympathies to all the affected families.

    As Ovidio says if its not enough with Covid-19 and a woman Mountie 23 year veteran married 2 children sometimes open carry has its good side any public seeing a rogue can open up on them yes I know bullets going every where more casualties but lets face it these people rely on the Police to negotiate whilst they happilly blaze away a 12 hour stand off they the shooter don't have any rules or morals.

    Condolences to all the affected people from this event, I can hear those screws of the Govt turning now guys wait for it...........................

    I hate to sound insensitive and self-serving, but the "gun control" mob will co-opt this tragedy to further their agenda.

    They've already been complaining of firearms and ammunition "stock-piling" during the COVID-19 epidemic, and now law abiding citizens will be pilloried and treated like potential criminals, just because they engage in a non-politically correct activity. The media will lead with anything that increases ratings. They aren't satisfied with reporting the news, they manufacture it to formulate public opinion.

    The gun control mob watched the knee jerk reaction to gun control in Australiaicon and New Zealand, and they're drooling.

    I cringed when I heard the first reports of this tragedy, not because of the senseless horror and loss to the innocent victims and their families, but because I knew that I would be the victim of senseless persecution because I'm a gun enthusiast.
    Some do, some don't; some will, some won't; I might ...

    Punctuation. Just confirming, is this what you said?

    "As Ovidio says, if its not enough with Covid-19 and a woman Mountie. 23 year veteran married 2 children. Sometimes open carry has its good side, any public seeing a rogue can open up on them. Yes, I know, bullets going every where. More casualties, but lets face it these people rely on the Police to negotiate whilst they happilly blaze away. A 12 hour stand off they. The shooter don't have any rules or morals."

    My perception if open carry is common, this kind of action would't go further than the first couple of shots.

    This one has been planned extensively - at a minimum for months.

    He (according to the news) had 2 cars skinned /logo decal marked as RCMP police cars ( right down to unit serial numbers) and had uniform clothing - this isn't something you just "snap" into...

    And the first?? 2 victims are correctional personnel of some sort.

    The police news update said ..." some of the victims appear random..."\

    this whole event is a true tragedy.


    I forgot to add, in (nearly?) every case, the early information is usually wrong...

    This is another incomprehensible violent, selfish, intolerable act. I have nothing but deep sympathy for those families who are now grieving, the friends who now have a hole in thier heart and colleagues thinking how will we be without...?

    What angers me, to the point of boiling rage, is that nothing will be done about this. The issue is not firearms, nor any other weapon of choice. It is self centeredness and an absence of discipline.

    This is the result of a society where "fairness" means every child wins a prize for turning up. Is it a result of never hearing "no, you will not." It is a result is parents shrugging thier shoulders and saying "what can we do?" It is a result of people listening to psychologists talk in a clinical manner about children who must not be subjected to binary choices and outcomes, but negotiated with, when thier cognitive capacity and experience is unable to fathom such complex choices.

    We, as a society, really are overdue at looking at the root cause of these despicable actions.

    The cause is pretty simple. It's self-centredness. In places, it's narcissism. It is undeniably a complete absence of self-discipline which was taught at an early age, in a complete family environment, through cause and effect.

    It simply not good enough mourning more victims.

    It is simply stupid "banning" firearms.

    It is simply cowardly not addressing the self discipline issue that comes right down to parents and every bloody individual there is.

    I hope the loved ones left behind find peace soon enough. They did not deserve this torture.

    Absolutely 100% spot on....
