Article.

And body armour. The rifle the shooter had was a Norinco M305, a copy of the M1A.

RCMP Commissioner testifies.

Quote:
Under direct examination by Mark Ertel, defence lawyer for the force, Paulson said there was no way to foresee an active outdoor shooter event. No police force provided outdoor shooter training prior to the Moncton shootings.


What? Shocked

That is a long article and it's worth reading.

Unsurprisingly, he's gotten a lot of flak for his testimony from other RCMP officers.

So basically in a nutshell, RCMP tasered a Polish guy to death at Vancouver Airport in 2007, so they became very gun shy (literally) about deploying carbines and now they're giving plainly ridiculous explanations for the delay.
