We'll never know for sure, but with the level of mental illness in the world there will always be ready recruits to such dangers.
    Very much agree. Most of these 'active shooters' are losers in their own lives and looking for others to blame. High school shooters too.

    Blaming women, former employers, the govt, etc. And then a cult or other group comes along and promises them a way to 'get back' at them or take control over their lives back.

    They are just weak losers that act out in a very dangerous way.

As Canadians, we basically pride ourselves in our places of government being very open and accessible by the general public and this may make that less so but I'm certainly glad this man was able to take down the terrorist before he got any further. I also didn't realize that security that protects entry into the Parliamentary buildings in Ottawa are unarmed, even though they are there to ensure that no one enters the buildings armed. I'm pretty sure that won't continue into the future.
    Thanks...

    We had a shooting at a tax office here in New Zealand a few months ago and the governments answer was to put unarmed guards at the entrance to tax offices.

    Seems a rather stupid response but it apparently has made a lot of people feel better from the comments that I hear. I let them keep their illusion of safety...

    The original inference was if a certain group was already in place before the current regime came around, then maybe they have some rights, and should not just be told to assimilate. This applies to French Canada, and also to Latinos who were long resident in what is now the south west US, as part of the Spanish Empire, and then for 30 odd years as an independent nation.

    They were indeed "there first", in that some could claim a couple of centuries of residence, including the colonial period, and most certainly the three decades as an independent nation, at a time when the US did not extend that far west. They were well established when the US invaded and took over in 1848.

    FOX is giving excellent coverage over what happened in Canada, with live feed from Canadian contributors and politicians. I've watched the major US Networks out of curiosity and FOX appears to be the best.

    If we had US laws, he probably would have had an M-14 and a 1000 rounds of ammo. He apparently had a single shot rifle.

    It's odd, despite the differing gun laws, that the Canadian terrorists have been shot dead while US terrorists in similar cases are still alive. I prefer the Canadian response.

    I tend to agree with you both. Religion is just a handy tool here for those with deep psychological issues. I'd bet also that ISIS is little more than a grab bag of dysfunction, with few there even having much of a grasp of the actual religion of Islam.

    Members of ISIS who have spoken out, and they have their Clerics, seem to know their religion quite well.

    It's been the habit of liberals to claim that Islamists don't understand Islam but that has never been demonstrated. Perhaps Islam is just a ridiculous medieval religion, with no place in the modern world, taught to the otherwise uneducated, and has survived mainly through threats, coercion and violence. It's time to get real. Authentic Muslim Moderate Cleric: ISIS Is Following Established Islamic Jurisprudence

    You might not be able to kill an ideology, but you sure as hell can beat the crap out of it.

    The shooter was born in Canada. Care to insert the other foot?
