    I thought Canada had gun laws.

    Must have imported them from Chicago.

    Put Rahm Emmanuel in control of Quebec and this thing will be so common it won't get reported anymore.

    You love to joke about serious matters. Peace loving Muslims get killed and wounded and all you can comment on is gun control. People lost their lives in that attack. I guess that kind of thing just rolls off your thick skin unnoticed. Of course if it had been YOUR mom or dad killed it might be a bit closer to home and there wouldn't be these snide comments made, now would there? You are as compassionate as a cobra.

    It appears this was a Muslim attack, probably sectarian in fighting.

    The lone suspect was identified as Alexandre Bissonnette, a student at the nearby Laval University, a law enforcement source told Reuters.

    Police initially named Mohamed el Khadir as a second suspect, The Associated Press reported, before cops apparently backtracked.


    Witnesses said at least one gunman shouted 'Allahu akbar!' while opening fire at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre Sunday night, killing six men

    I suppose you kids have no interest in this anymore other than to say that all these sources are fake news.

    Have a nice day.

    A "sectarian Muslim" attack by a white nationalist French-Canadian:

    A French-Canadian university student was the sole suspect in a shooting at a Quebec City mosque that killed six people and injured 17 others, Canadian authorities said on Monday, in what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called "a terrorist attack."

    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-canada-mosque-shooting-toll-idUSKBN15E0F6

    As usual, you accepted Fox "fake news":

    Almost immediately, various news outlets and political figures depicted the shooter as Muslim. Right-wing nationalist tabloids in the UK instantly linked it to Islamic violence. Fox News claimed that “witnesses said at least one gunman shouted ‘Allahu akbar!’,” and then added this about the shooter’s national origin:

    White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer exploited the attack to justify President Trump’s ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. “It’s a terrible reminder of why we must remain vigilant and why the President is taking steps to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to our nation’s safety and security,” Spicer said at this afternoon’s briefing when speaking of the Quebec City attack.

    But these assertions are utterly false. The suspect is neither Moroccan nor Muslim. The Moroccan individual, Mohamed el Khadir, was actually one of the worshippers at the mosque and called 911 to summon the police, and played no role whatsoever in the shooting.

    The actual shooting suspect is 27-year-old Alexandre Bissonnette, a white French Canadian who is, by all appearances, a rabid anti-immigrant nationalist. A leader of a local immigration rights groups, François Deschamps, told a local paper he recognized his photo as an anti-immigrant far-right “troll” who has been hostile to the group online. And Bisonnette’s Facebook page – now taken down but still archived – lists among its “likes” the far right French nationalist Marine Le Pen, Islam critics Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the Israeli Defense Forces, and Donald J. Trump (he also “likes” the liberal Canadian Party NDP along with more neutral “likes” such as Tom Hanks, the Sopranos and Katy Perry).

    It is usually the case that there is significant confusion in the wake of attacks of this sort. And local police did apparently arrest two suspects at first: both Bissonnette along with el Khadir. And until the investigation is complete, one cannot know for certain what the motives here were. One should be careful about trying to infer too much from a hodgepodge of Facebook “likes” and, this early, even anecdotal claims about his political views. As for reports that someone yelled “Allahu akbar,” it is perfectly natural that someone in a mosque would say that upon seeing a homicidal killer randomly shooting people, or it’s possible that the shooter said it mockingly.

    But this is exactly why no responsible news organization, let alone the White House, should rush to depict the shooter as Muslim and of Moroccan descent when so little is known about what happened. Yet not only did Fox and the Trump White House do exactly that, but worse, neither has retracted or corrected their claims long after it became clear that it was false:

    The inflammatory effect of this sort of reckless, biased “reporting” is as predictable as it is toxic. All day long, people around the world cited these reports to justify Trump’s ban as well as their own ugly views of Muslims:

    Of course more information is needed, but it seems quite likely the attack was triggered by the Canadian PM's offer to accept refugees banned by Trump's illegal and unconstitutional executive order.

    Canadian police have just identified the lone gunman who attacked a Quebec mosque during prayers last night, killing five praying Muslims and injuring eight. Alexandre Bissonnettte, a Quebec native, has been taken into police custody.

    Not surprisingly, Bissonnette’s Facebook page (since taken down) shows that he “likes” Donald Trump and far-right, Islamophobic French politician Marine Le Pen. He also likes the Christian site Reasonable Faith.

    Bissonnettte is ardently pro-Trump and anti-Islam, according to a former classmate of his from Université Laval, who told Heavy.com that Bissonnettte “has right-wing political ideas, pro-Israel, anti-immigration. I had many debates with him about Trump. He was obviously pro-Trump.”

    Furthermore, a Facebook group called “Welcome to Refugees – Quebec City” posted that it was familiar with Bissonnettte, and that he is “unfortunately known to several activists in Quebec City for his pro-Le Pen and anti-feminist identity positions at Université Laval and on social networks.” Le Pen is an ardent anti-Muslim French politician who has been closely linked to Trump in the past.

    So let’s recap: one day after Donald Trump bans Muslims from several countries because, he claims, they pose a threat to the West, one of HIS deranged followers shoots up a crowd of Muslims whose only crime was peacefully practicing their faith.

    How will we know when Trump has figured out what's going on?

    Will there be smoke from a White House chimney?

    This just in: Trump figured it out - suspect is white so just a lone gunman, crazy guy, nothing to see here. Let's just forget about it and start worrying again about the the next jihadist terror attack that we might prevent by detaining 5-year-old U.S. citizens at airports.

    We need a dating agency in which lone wolf Christian zealots can get together with lone wolf Islamic zealots. They would have so much in common. Much more in common than whatever divides them. Then they could turn their attention to their real enemy - progressive, creative and lively people with a commitment to making life better for everyone - or more simply, people who threaten the profits of the .01%. We could have a fascist world - a bit like the one Trump is building for his fellow Americans

    Well I'm glad that things finally worked out for you. A white racist man is to blame.
