I'm not 6 foot 5. I might hide my family members in the attic. But not me.

If someone is firebombing my house, I don't suddenly look for materials to make a firebomb so I can meet their escalating force.

Just knew this one was going to be lively.

Generally I fall into the live and let live category but a direct threat to myself or family is going to be met head-on. If my life is threatened, I will at least leave my mark on the piece of 5#!t that did it and will use whatever weapons I can find to accomplish that.

Does get me to thinking. With modern Police forces increasingly resorting to SWAT teams for what are truly misdemeanor infractions, would homeowners be justified in having cannons loaded with grapeshot as part of their arsenal? <insert sarcasm emoticon here>

This is how it should be!

OPP won?t lay charges in fatal stabbing during Arnprior home break-in | Ontario News24:Ontario Latest News

This idiot broke into a house, and in self defense was killed by the dad and son. No charges would be laid. Thanks you! If someone breaks into my house they better hope I do not get to them first because I would have no problem standing up to them... well, if they had a gun that would be different...then again, if I got behind him and he didn't notice me...hmmm....I will have to go out and buy a few bats to leave around the house. 80)

I have golf clubs. Everyone always asks me why there is a golf club in the corner.

the article seems to be making a mountain out of a molehill. besides the 2 high profile cases i don't think it's really a rampant problem plaguing our court system.

the case against the chinatown shop owner was silly, and the judge said as much. the case against ian thomson is a bit different. from the article:

Quote:
He fired in the air
Quote:
The householder, a licensed gun owner and firearms instructor, broke no law.
i'm not sure about canada's specific firearm laws, but i know in many countries it's illegal to fire a gun in the air because of the danger of falling bullets. now on sparsely populated farm land it might not be a problem, but imagine a home owner in toronto did what he did? that could be very dangerous.

still, in the specific case of ian thomson i wish the crown would drop the case as it doesn't serve the public interest to prosecute him.

There is nothing 'imported' about it, least of all from your pathetic paranoia with the U.S.A.'s version of allowing citizens to protect themselves, guaranteed under law.

A pre-emptive attack has long served man as a survival of the fittest, like it or not.
WOW! How'da'thunk it! Sinc doesn't believe in the rule of law and is...is...is an anarchist at heart?

It is foreign it is a Excited States doctrine. I'm not the only one saying it's foreign, Blogging Tories (last link) talk about the concept not being Canadian and they want it to be Canadian.

The Castle Doctrine is not guaranteed in the Constitution like the gun ownership amendment, but in order to use the guns each state has to enact the Castle Doctrine law to make the gun use lawful and thereby gun ownership useful.

The right to self-defense is not exclusively tied to the Castle Doctrine as you link it. It is a much broader right.
