    Canada isn't a gun free zone, there are firearms there, and in order to own them you need to have a PAL, or for semi-automatic rifles an RPAL, from the article it described "bursts of automatic weapons" which would put the firearm well into the "prohibited class" under canadian law.

    I think it's pretty safe to say that the assailant here probably didn't have licenses for his firearms so a lot of good all that red tape did.

    You're right, this thread is probably mistitled. But the point is gun control is much more strict there laws there and shooting sprees still happen.
