Agreed. Unfortunately, if this triggers a massive Australian-style gun grab in Canada, only the law-abiding gun owners will be victimized. LEOs and military will always be exempt.

They already have 110% shit laws, doesn't really make a difference at this point.

One gunman dead and possibly another still on the loose.

Multiple gunmen opened fire at the Canadian Parliament complex, shooting at least one soldier and spraying as many as 30 shots inside the government building just two days after a terror attack in Quebec shook the nation, officials said.

The shots rang out just before 10 a.m., and were quickly followed by reports of "several shooting incidents in downtown Ottawa," according to a tweet from police. The shooting at the government complex came after witnesses said they saw one and possibly two men jump out of a Toyota Corolla and run toward the National War Memorial, where one man opened fire on a soldier, officials told the Ottawa Sun. The gunmen then ran to the Parliament building, where witnesses later said they saw one man - possibly a gunman, down near the library. Bernard Trottier, a Toronto-area MP, tweeted that the gunman inside Centre Block "has been shot and killed.” The other was reportedly being sought.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was whisked away to a safe location as Royal Canadian Mounted Police converged on the complex.

Harper “is safe and has left Parliament Hill,” Jason MacDonald, his director of communications, said via Twitter.

Witnesses told the Globe and Mail the Parliament Hill building was locked down and police ordered journalists to shelter in the foyer in front of the House of Commons. Members of Parliament also took cover in the building, tweeting from inside the building.

Michelle Rempel, a Conservative MP from Calgary, used Twitter to communicate with the outside world: “Mom im okay Im in hiding,” tweeted Michelle Rempel, a Conservative MP from Calgary.

Another MP, Democrat Hélène Laverdière, told CBC that she heard to 20 to 30 shots and hit the floor.

“There are currently active shooters in the Parliament Hill vicinity,” read an email sent out to the Prime Minister’s staff, according to Canada.com.

At the memorial, emergency responders were seen performing CPR on the shooting victim, believed to be one of the soldiers stationed around the clock at the memorial, Canada.com reported. The soldier's name and condition were not available.

The drama unfolded just before 10 a.m., two days after two Canadian soldiers were run over -- and one of them killed -- in Quebec by a man with jihadist sympathies. And on Tuesday, Canada had raised its domestic terror level from low to medium due to "an increase in general chatter from radical Islamist organizations like ISIL, Al Qaeda, al-Shabab and others who pose a clear threat to Canadians," said Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, a spokesman for the public safety minister.

Scott Walsh, who was working on Parliament Hill, told CBC that he saw a man running with a double-barreled shotgun, wearing a scarf and blue jeans. Walsh said the man hopped over the fence that surrounded Parliament Hill and forced someone out of their car, then drove to the front doors of the Parliament building and fired at least two shots.

I dont agree. Anything that happens in their parliament building this big would make the news. Especially if the PM was there and he was. This is like a soldier guarding the Tomb got shot and the gunmen ran into the White House.

According to this, there were three shooters (one now dead).

As always, first reports are always a little sketchy.

At least two people are injured, including a soldier, after shots were fired in the Parliamentary precinct in Ottawa on Wednesday morning; one shooter is dead and police suspect as many as two others are on the loose.

A dark-clothed gunman fired the shots just before 10 a.m. at the Canadian War Memorial, where a uniformed soldier was shot. The gunman then fled for Parliament Hill, where he unleashed more gunfire inside Centre Block. A security guard was injured before the sergeant-at-arms shot the suspect dead, according to multiple reports.

Ottawa Police have confirmed three shootings and said there was also an incident near the Rideau Centre, a large mall metres from Parliament Hill.
