Canada has strict "gun control" and this was in a defenseless victim zone, sorry I mean a college, where all guns are banned anyway so how could this have happened?
Several people shot at Montreal college By PHIL COUVRETTE, Associated Press Writer

MONTREAL - At least one gunman in a black trench coat opened fire Wednesday in the cafeteria of a Montreal college and wounded an unknown number of people before shooting himself, witnesses and police said.
Scores of students at Dawson College near downtown fled into the surrounding streets after the shooting broke out in the school of about 10,000. Some of them had bloody clothes.
CBC-TV showed police with guns drawn standing behind a police cruiser.
Martine Millette of the Montreal police said authorities did not know how many people had been shot. There also was uncertainty if there was more than one gunman.
Millette said the man later shot himself. Constable Philippe Gouin said "in all probability, the suspect has committed suicide."
Student Devansh Smri Vastava said he saw a man in military fatigues storm the school's cafeteria and that he heard about 20 shots fired. Other witnesses said the man wore a black trench coat.
He also said teachers ran through the halls telling students to get out.
Another student who gave her name as Chloe tearfully recounted seeing the gunman pointing a weapon at people.
"All of a sudden I turned around and saw a man who was all dressed in black," she told radio station 940 News.
"This dude with the clothes started pointing the gun at other people. He was right behind me. He turned around and went in the corner of the cafeteria," she said.
Another student told 940 News that she had seen two people who had been shot, including one who was hit in the neck. The student said a friend told her four people had been shot.
Ingrid Keigan, a 17-year-old student, said she saw one person outside who had been shot in the chest.
A SWAT team and canine units were at the college, going floor by floor to look for victims, Sgt. Giuseppe Boccardi told CNN.
"Most of the students have exited the college grounds," he said.
People have also been evacuated from the nearby Alexis-Nihon shopping center.
Dawson College was the first English-language institution in Quebec's network of university preparatory colleges when it was founded in 1969. It is the largest college of general and vocational education, known by its French acronym CEGEP, in the province.
Only CBC mentioned that his name was Kimveer Gill, and was a member of a so-called "Goth" group. I googled the name and came up with only one hit, sure enough, a Goth website. but the site was down. Shut down by the police maybe?
The Goths are into the whole wear black-embrace death thing, so one has to wonder if it was a suicide by cop and take a few with me type of thing.
They said he has three weapons, one a semiautomatic rifle.
I really hope your government doesn't start passing knee-jerk laws
and further firearm restrictions like they did in 1989.
From the pictures I have seen, the Goth killer was using a Beretta Cx$ storm carbine. No way to tell which caliber it was; 9MM, 40S&W or 45ACP.
Also, the perp in 1989 at the Ecole Polytechnique was a woman hating Muslim. His father was an Algeria who beat the kid's mom regularly. The perp did kill 14 women. The Canadian media and the goverment blamed the gun and the victims.
