Two adults dead in Canada daycare shooting, police say
Reuters – 8 hrs ago
GATINEAU, Quebec (Reuters) - A shooting at a daycare center near Ottawa on Friday left two adults dead, one of them the gunman, but police said all 53 children at the center were unharmed.
Police said they received a call for help Friday morning after shots were fired in the Montessori daycare center in Gatineau, Quebec, just across the Ottawa River from the Canadian capital.
"We have two deceased. One of the males is the person responsible for the shooting and the second person is another male who works here at the daycare," Gatineau Police Chief Mario Haren told reporters.
He said all the children - including five babies - were safe after being evacuated by police officers to a nearby house.
Haren would not confirm the identities of the deceased, saying their families had not been notified.
He said a shotgun was found near the body of the presumed shooter, and that police were investigating the possibility that the shooting was related to a domestic dispute.
Earlier, CBC television reported seeing an adult-sized body being removed on a stretcher.

Is that crickets that I hear? Where are all of the anti-gun nuts on this one? Don't we support a ban on the evil murderous guns in Canada too?

How many kids in Connecticut?
Crickets nothing. This actually proves gun laws help. Your lack of laws resulted in almost 50 children dead in one incident.
Unless you think 1 dead adult is equal to 50 dead children. Then I totally see your point.
Oh, and in the interest of correcting misinformation and ignorance, we have gun CONTROL not a gun ban. They aren't the same thing. Maybe that's where your problem is."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

We don't have public handgun carrying permits in Canada to my knowledge. Perhaps in Quebec, but I don't think so.
Let's say you shoot at a range, but you decide to go to another city with your handgun locked in the trunk. In some Provinces if you are stopped you will be in big trouble for doing this.
Home-Range-Back Home, don't mess around with your gun in your car.

Many Americans wonder what happens when a Canadian snaps. Most of our anger is taken out on the ice, if not, then with Fire.
Canadians statistics for piromania are some of the highest in the Western World. Piss-off a Canadian, he won't shoot you, he'll burn down your house while you are asleep.
