Based on other sources, there may be another gunman still at large.

Yikes, we might need to put a wall along that border. We don't want those kind getting in here.

No, silly. You should be calling for a ban on military-looking weapons.

That would make sense. I'll call for a ban on daffodils. That's the Trump way - ban something that has nothing to do with the problem.

You're saying if a shooting happened in the US, you wouldn't be recommending more gun legislation to keep guns out of the hands of the criminals who opened fire on a religious building of worshipers?

Are they Muslim? Just following the President's lead.

Are they from a country where Trump does business? This is an important distinction when determining their worth.

Well, if we're following the President's lead, we'd first look at if they are from another country and on what conditions they were in the country.

Second, if they were not, the external country risk wouldn't be a factor...and you'd have to investigate why these people did what they did without being on LE's radar.

But I guess that might seem too controversial.

'A Quebecois accent'

A witness, who asked to remain anonymous, told CBC's French-language service Radio-Canada that two masked individuals entered the mosque.

"It seemed to me that they had a Quebecois accent. They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, 'Allahu akbar!' The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head," said the witness.
Not a good sign.

Looks like it was the muslims at the mosque who were the targets.

From what I've read online, everyone is already playing the blame game. Fact of the matter is anyone that would do something like this has a serious mental health issue. Anyone that would do this is a coward and a sick human being.
The fact that people from both sides are more concerned with who did it than the fact that innocent people were killed is pretty telling of the world we live in.

I haven't heard much about this yet, but I read this was the same mosque that had a pig's head thrown at it last year.

You think the pig's head being thrown at the mosque 6 months ago is a correlation with this attack?

Seems a lot different. This attack was more vicious. More aggressive. More direct.

So Muslims open fire at a mosque? Let me think about that one for minute.

Un des deux hommes arrêtés dans le cadre de l’attentat terroriste survenu dans une mosquée de Québec serait d’origine québécoise et l’autre serait d’origine arabe, selon les informations obtenues par Félix Séguin de notre Bureau d’enquête.

Un des deux suspects serait âgé de 27 ans, selon les informations de TVA Nouvelles.

Les deux hommes, détenus par les policiers, doivent être interrogés sous peu.

Les suspects sont entrés dans la mosquée située à Sainte-Foy peu après 19h30, heure à laquelle la prière commençait.
One of the two men arrested in connection with the terrorist attack in a Quebec mosque would be of Quebec origin and the other would be of Arab origin, according to information obtained by Félix Séguin from our Investigative Office.

One of the two suspects would be 27 years old, according to TVA News.

The two men, detained by the police, are to be questioned shortly.

The suspects entered the mosque in Sainte-Foy shortly after 7:30 pm, at which time the prayer began.
I think we can rule out Nazis.

Was it a Shia mosque? Muslim world seems to have a lot of Sunnis attacking Shias.
