meanwhile this happens often in US


Multiple people were shot early Tuesday at a Tuscaloosa, Alabama, bar, and a suspect remains at large, police told CNN.

The shooting occurred about 12:30 a.m. at The Copper Top bar, Tuscaloosa police Sgt. Brent Blankley said. He would not confirm how many people were injured or their conditions.

CNN affiliate WVTM, citing officials at DCH Hospital, reported that 17 people were wounded. CNN affiliate WBRC said that of those hurt, one was in critical condition, and three were in serious condition.

Calmamity: I don't think this actually happened, because Canada has very strict handgun laws.


Very strict gun control laws mean that only criminals end up with guns. The laws don't make it any harder for the bad guys to get ahold of them. If they want to, they will. I'm from nearby Hamilton and I don't recall a lot of gun-related violence, but it did happen. Certainly plenty of beatings and knifey goodness to make up for the lack of shootings, however.

I also think that any idiots self-absorbed enough to think that solving their ridiculous petty dispute by shooting wildly in a crowd of people deserve to be stoned to death by a crowd of women wearing fake beards. Failing that, they could at least be donated to the military or to the USA as Indentured Meat Shields for the troops overseas. Better than taking up tax dollars by sitting in jail for 20 years.

I believe statistically speaking we don't shoot each other as often as Americans.

That said we have lots of guns in Canada - 7-8 million for a population of 35 million.

Handguns are fairly common where I live and IPSC is the fastest growing shooting sport. We have a 10 rnd cap on mags for pistols and 5 for most centre fire semis. Certain longguns like ARs are restricted, as are pistols and revolvers so you need a special permit. Some longguns like AKs, and pistols in .25 and .32, as well as those under 105mm are prohibited. There is a whole cottage industry dedicated to manufacturing 106mm barrels for Glock 30s, etc.

We also have unusual laws that treat a pump shotgun with an 8 inch barrel as a long gun as long as its oal is 26 inches.

I wonder if the shooters' pistols were registered and had reduced capacity magazines? I wonder.

A couple of thoughts:

2) Canada has to secure their side of the border.....we can't do it for them. And if/when they beef up their border security, you won't hear any complaints from me....unlike the complaints we hear about when there is talk of beefing up security on our border with Mexico.

Times like this, I really wish we had concurrent sentencing. He could have shot one person, ten, or a hundred, and he would still get the same sentencing. Assuming the people killed were the intended targets, he is looking at life with no parole for 25 years. If they weren't and just bystanders, he is looking at life with no parole for 10-25 years (closer to 10).

If we had concurrent sentencing, two murders would equate to 50 years in prison, plus 21x7 for the people who were lucky enough to not die, would equate to 197 years in prison.

Since the US refuses to enforce the bare minimum of gun laws and allows the shops in border suburbs to keep selling willy-nilly to anyone, I fail to see how Chicago's reasonable gun laws were the problem. Butt keep right on with the myth that having guns makes people safer. The thousands upon thousands of murders and accidental shootings will just keep on happening because of our collective unwillingness to do something about the problem.

Wow you are Completely retarded ,

Switzerland militia stipulates that you may not use the weapon that you have been issued unless there is a war even to defend your own life -- also they only allow weapons to be kept in the home if you are in out lying areas . So no one in downtown Oslo is keeping a military weapon in their closet .

The penalties for using the army issued gun , even waving it around are dire ,, on top of Fines and Jail they can basically make you a second class citizen ... a resident alien that has zero access to a lot of things people take for granted

And the Swiss do have strict gun laws out side of that

Oh, this GOP lie again. How tiresome. King was bipartisan. He never endorsed any political candidate. He was not a Republican. According to his sone MKL III:

"It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican. It is even more outrageous to suggest he would support the Republican Party of today, which has spent so much time and effort trying to suppress African American votes in Florida and many other states."

..From an interview with AP in 2008

The GOP is desperate to get black people to vote for their candidates and have fabricated this absurdity in an effort to associate King with the "Party of Lincoln". Unfortunately for them, black people just laugh at the.

Whoooooooooooooooooole lot of derp going on in this thread.

No one to blame for the crime except THE F*CKING PERPETRATORS. As for the guns used, you can't blame Canada's handgun restricted laws, or the U.S.'s permissive laws...it's sadly the result of living next to a country that's (one way or another) flooded with handguns and criminals selling them to anyone they choose.

Personally, I blame the local aboriginal tribes on the U.S./Canada border - they're responsible for a LOT of the handguns coming into Canada, the f*ckers.

Good job at highlighting your stupidity.

vegasj: Rapmaster2000: Do you have anything valuable to say about the incident? Clearly, you do not.

I have read about the incident many times and not once was the race of the shooter mentioned. Why are they refusing to say that it is clearly a white person?

Maybe you or one of your PC friends can tell us.

apparently you have nothing either.

Maybe the race of the white guy isn't mentioned because there';s a farking video showing us. Don't get me started on the amount of media articles where they deliberately leave out the race of black suspects.


So you admit that the media refuses to include the race of the white shooter? It's good that you finally admit that this PC Thuggery exists. Now, we just need PC Pukes like you to stop accepting it.

ObscureNameHere: OscarTamerz: Attractive and successful Afro-Canadians?


No, in Canada we are smart enough to generally describe black people as 'black'. Because, well, a black person is black. A brown person would be descibed as 'brown'. Is there some part of this complex descriptive paradigm that is too confusing for the United States to follow?

To have one of the highest murder rates in the 1st world, more than many 3rd world countries, is what it means to be an American? Man, setting the bar low, aren't you? Sounds like "liberty isn't safe" is a code word for the country is really a 3rd world nation in disguise.

rico567: ontariolightning: Calmamity: I don't think this actually happened, because Canada has very strict handgun laws.

Oh, is that why? How simple and enlightening. And in Switzerland, where every household is required to be armed by law, they practically have NO violent crime. So, yep, strict gun laws are the answer all right....nothing to do with violent people, or (which we dare not mention) cultures and subcultures that have institutionalized violence. (I didn't mention that.)



Switzerland is a very wealthy, high standard of living, small country with a population less than New York City. Is this your comparison you want to go with?

OnlyM3: Jared Loughner - shot and killed six people, including Chief U.S. District Court Judge John Roll. Left 14 others injured, including U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords.


A registered Independent who attacked a Democratic congresswoman. So there's your first lie, making everything else you said uncredible, but let's oblige your lying ass anyway.

OnlyM3: John Wilkes Booth (cooperhead aka "peace democrat") - Shot/killed Abraham Lincoln


At a time when the parties were switched from their views now. Republican voters now like to hold up Confederate flags, celebrating their glorious past of feudalism and racism (which the Republican Party stands for today). In the past, Republicans were fighting for abolitionism and against slavery/racism. Today, the Republican Party is a fascist and racist organization. The anti-war/peace part of that description is the "peace" of letting fascists get away with their work, much like the conservative opposition to going to war with the Nazis in World War II.

OnlyM3: Charles J. Guiteau (Democrat) - Shot/killed James Garfield


A Republican who killed another Republican because Garfield refused to play political cronyism.

OnlyM3: Leon Czolgosz (Democratic Anarchist) - Shot/killed William McKinley


1) Nothing to do with the Democratic Party, an anarchist. Anarchists oppose the state, capitalism, and all forms of hierarchy. Anarchists oppose both political parties for their participation in the state. Let alone that the Democratic Party is a conservative capitalist party. Leon was a hero who got someone who deserved it. His heroism ranks up there with Emma Goldman, Alexander Berkman, and for more modern examples of such heroism is Revolutionary Struggle in Greece, the anti-fascist movement in the UK, and the people who have taken to the streets in Spain.

OnlyM3: Lee Harvey Oswald (Democrat / Communist) - Shot/killed John F. Kennedy


Someone who joined the Soviet Union against the USA. So he would prefer neither party. He shot an anti-communist (and conservative capitalist) president who was a Democrat. Again, nothing to do with the Democratic Party.

OnlyM3: James Earl Ray Democrat shot / killed MLK [Republican]


James Earl Ray had attended a 'George Wallace presidential campaign rally' the day before he killed Martin Luther King Jr. George Wallace was extremely racist and segregationist. He had run for president on the Democratic ticket but could not become their candidate, so he ran as an Independent. George Wallace was Governor when he stood in the way of a public school as black students tried to enter after segregation was abolished. James Earl Ray was inspired by the Wallace's racist philosophy and rhetoric and decided to kill Martin Luther King Jr.
As an aside, though the Democratic party once included segregationist Dixiecrats, most (but not all) of them abandoned the party during the civil rights era to become Independents or Republicans. Good example: Strom Thurmond. MLK fought for civil rights. The Republican Party is a racist fascist party that seeks to deny them.

OnlyM3: John Hinckley, Jr Registered Democrat" Shot R. Reagan


His motivation (and I should mention that Jared was similarly insane, but with some political bents) was out of insanity and apolitical.

So all of your examples are bullshiat. And yes, violence does come from Republicans or the far right most often in this country. If you're going to try to list property damage as violence or self-defense from armed street gangs/terrorist groups such as the police as "riots" then you'll only be continuing to lie.

Depends on the part of Scarberia - I spent a few years there when I was a kid, and our area is still the last bastion of WASP gentility in the GTA. Malvern? No. West Hill, fugeddaboutit. Galloway, fark right the heck off. There are a lot of really crap areas in Scarberia (just like in North York and some parts of central Toronto, and fark you too Rexdale), but there are still pockets of real niceness there.

I live in one of the worst areas of Hamilton now, and it's got some nice parts too. Not nearly as uniformly horrid as Newark, though we do work at it. Maybe we can get it right with some more guns, a bit more poverty and a slightly less stupid criminal class.

For the NRA members and their alts posting, let's look at the Second Amendment:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

I'm no legal expert, but this is how I interpret this. Let's say that Obama loses the election this November, but refuses to leave the White House and step down as President. If after the courts have confirmed that he must stand down and he still will not, an organized militia would have the right to take up arms and force him to step down at gun point.

You want to see how the Founding Fathers wanted the Second Amendment to turn out, see Switzerland. As already mentioned, the Swiss have a high ownership guns but can only use them in order to protect national security. The Fathers did not put this in order to protect a society from prosecution which carries handguns around casually believing it is their right.

And let's not forget that there is much more relating to violent crime than just gun ownership.

Poverty, education, race and socioeconomic levels are a much higher indicator of crime than gun ownership. Although people think all of America is a crime-ridden location this is simply not true. A vast majority of crime is focused in certain high-density population density that have high poverty and low education. In fact, a vast majority of guns (I believe it was roughly 87% but don't quote me on that) in America are owned by caucasians but they commit only a fraction of the gun crimes. African-Americans on the other hand have only a tiny percentage of firearm ownership, but commit that vast majority of gun crimes. Staying away from racial stereotypes it's more likely that the crime is related to other sociological and economic contributing factors that permissive or lax gun laws.

Of course, haha.

Either way, the back and forth bickering between Canadians and Americans is quite humorous. Culturally, the two countries are very similar. At the end of the day, whether either one likes to admit it, Canadians and Americans are essentially the same people and very close allies. Just like siblings, they're allowed to pick on each other, but no one else is.

globalwarmingpraiser: ontariolightning: Maximer: johnnyo666: Get over yourself. Most of us could care less about your crumbling empire.

The quantity of ontariolightning's posts make me question your assertion.

ontariolightning: americans are taught at a young age that they live in the greatest country in the world because of the constitution which isnt really all that great. so we make fun of americans for being asshats

Keep telling yourself that.


how are the two the same? the day to day activities? maybe.. but same can be said for most western nations

canadians are much more liberal

canada is oficially english + french, US= english

americans are obsessed with college sports and football.. canadians with hockey

entertainment wise we're known for comedians, america is known for drama actors/actresses

canadians use metric US uses imperial

why dont you show me how we're similar?

Religion is scarce in Canadian politics while its dominant in American politics

Canada has a Queen, US does not.

We deal with crime and military differently than the US as well

Sincerly, most of Canada



Considering that we are your largest trading partner....which happens to be next door....maybe you should care....because a shiatty economy in the U.S. isn't exactly in your best interest.

comparing  canada usa content rating system. canadas wayyy more liberal in the content of ratings

Canada 



C: Programming suitable for children ages of 2-7 years. No profanity or sexual content of any level allowed. Contains little to no violence.

C8: Suitable for children ages 8+. Low level violence and fantasy horror is allowed. No foul language is allowed, but occasional "socially offensive and discriminatory" language is allowed if in the context of the story. No sexual content of any level allowed.

G: Suitable for general audiences. Similar to the Canadian/American film rating of the same name; programming suitable for the entire family with mild violence, and mild profanity and/or bleeped language.

PG: Parental guidance. Again, similar to the movie rating of the same name. Moderate violence and moderate profanity isallowed, as is brief nudity and sexual references if important to the context of the story.

14+: Programming unsuitable for viewers aged younger than 14 years. May contain strong violence and strong profanity, and depictions of sexual activity as long as they are within the context of a story.

18+: Programming intended for viewers ages 18 and older. May contain explicit violence and sexual activity. Programming with this rating cannot air before the watershed (9:00 PM to 6:00 AM).

USA

TV-Y: Suitable for all children (particularly those of preschool or kindergarten age, as this rating is commonly seen in early childhood shows)

TV-Y7: Suitable for children over seven years old. May contain cartoonish slapstick violence, mild innuendo, and/or themes considered too controversial or incomprehensible for children under seven.

TV-G: Suitable for all audiences; contains little to no adult themes, sexual innuendo, violence, or language. Also used for shows with inoffensive content (such as cooking shows, religious programming, and reruns of classic game shows)

TV-PG: Parental guidance suggested; may contain infrequent and/or mild language and/or sexual references, mild to moderate violence, and/or suggestive themes and dialogue

TV-14: Parents strongly cautioned; may be inappropriate for children younger than 14 years of age. Contains moderate to realistic violence (including some blood-letting), moderate sexual references (including censored and/or partial nudity and heavily implied scenes of sexual intercourse), moderate language (including bleeped-out obscenities), and moderate sexual innuendo.

TV-MA: Mature audiences; inappropriate for people under 17 years of age. Contains strong language (which may or may not be censored for advertising reasons), explicit (though, in some cases, not pornographic) sexual content, graphic nudity, and/or graphic violence.

FTFY

canadians have their own musicians, tv shows, movies, news corporations, entertainers
yes US has more but we're not completely reliant on american tv

flashpoint and rookie blue both get 8-10 million american viewers per episode

Smallville was taped in Victoria/Vancouver BC.. Superman is half Canadian
metropolis was based on toronto and the daily planet based on the toronto star

americans are insanely celebrity obsessed and canada is not
 
2012-07-18 12:48:00 AM
And someone was saying canadians are the same as americans

remember we love using the letter U in our words

dittybopper: ontariolightning: Calmamity: I don't think this actually happened, because Canada has very strict handgun laws.

which is why it doesnt happen often.

Or, is it just because Canada doesn't have nearly the population of the United States, therefore incidents like this are more rare?


Toronto is somewhat more populous than Chicago, so no.

My solution for this is the usual: Deportations, evictions, Arctic gulags, public whippings, and heaps o' skulls. I call it "Five Fists of Order".

ontariolightning: Canada has more in common with the U.K than USA


Actually, Canada has more in common with Australia and New Zealand than the U.K.: Large countries with mostly resource wealth, ticked-off indigenous populations and a large mix of immigrants who, in certain subsets, shoot at each other in urban housing projects to establish penile respect.
