Aug. 7 Vancouver Shooting - RIP Zach Ferland

You will be missed.

Agreed.  The shooting is a tragedy. 
Welcome to HTMF, abcdefg!

I thought guns were banned in Canada.

RIP  Zach  …:frowning:    (f)

They are harder to get up here, my friend.  The gang violence is getting worse in Vancouver.

Harder for law abiding citizens maybe. For criminals? Doubt it.

There are fewer guns in circulation up here in Canada which is a good thing. 
Yes, I meant harder for law-abiding citizens.

it’s easier in the city here to get a 9mm out of a van from a dude name Mo then it is to get an FAC and buy an .22 from Canadian Tire…gee i wonder why people choose the first option.

Keep this thread on topic or I’ll start moving off-topic posts to a new thread.  Thanks.

Zach Ferland is a 2006 grad of PRSS who was tragically killed in Vancouver two days ago.  Zach was loved by many, and will be greatly missed by his family and his classmates.  Don’t want to say too much more, as we’re all trying to come to terms with this very sad event.

My deepest sympathies go out to his family.  This is a terrible event.
