Oh, Canada . . .

A mass shooting in Canada was the deadliest in its history. At least 16 people, including a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer, were killed in a roving gun rampage that began at a home in Nova Scotia on Saturday night. The perpetrator was disguised as a police officer and led authorities on a 12-hour manhunt before he died.

In the US we call that Tuesday . . .

1. It is 18 people so far but

they have not yet examined the burnt out buildings so could be more. There will be more gun restrictions coming.

2. Yeah - that's pretty unusual up here

I just hope it's not an indication of more to come - copycats, depression, etc.,

The stay at home thingy is blamed for increasing incidents of domestic violence, although it appears to have decreased general criminal activity.

Hell, people can get "cabin-fever" even when they alive alone . . .

Imagine living with someone 24/7 that you sighed a sigh of relief as they went off to work, and having most of the day to yourself, fussing about with chores, child-care etc. without input from someone on your performance . . . Now they are underfoot with nothing much to do . . . . a recipe for problems if ya ask me.

I've always been in favor of our reduced access to hand guns and automatic weapons. But I know, if one wants to, one can get them up here. Luckily, it appears that not too many of us wanna go that route.
