  • 15 years ago on this date, a single gunman, armed with a Beretta Cx4 Storm assault rifle, a shotgun, and a Glock semi-automatic handgun, went on a shooting rampage at the Dawson College in Montreal, Quebec.
    • One 18-year old woman, Anastasia De Sousa, died at the scene, while another 19 were injured. The shooter eventually committed suicide, after being shot in the arm by a police officer
    • Erin O’Toole, the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, continues to repeat the lie that the Beretta Cx4 Storm assault rifle used in the Dawson College shooting, was illegally obtained. It was not. The shooter obtained it legally. The Liberal government banned the Beretta Cx4 and 1,500 other assault-style weapons after the Dawson College shooting. O’Toole has promised the gun lobby to make the Beretta Cx4 Storm, the AK-47, and other assault weapons designed to hunt and kill humans legal again in Canada.
