But. . . but. . . they make TV SHOWS about how super-cool badass they are!

What, no jail time for criminal shitheadedness leading to wounding?

So much for getting tough.
I figured jail time would probably be against his/her civil rights. How about making them mall cops instead .

How about when you're an FBI agent showing off your moves on the dance floor (and drinking), and you do a super-cool flip and your weapon falls out of your waistband and goes off, hitting a bystander in the leg?
Well that's what you get for trusting AMERICANS with guns, canadians are much safer. We ALWAYS have someone in the crowd hold our guns before doing a backflip :)

I would impose real penalties on criminals. No more catch and release. I would also bring back capital punishment for certain crimes.
as for your giving your dads guns to the RCMP because of the paperwork involved in keeping them, this is exactly what the government is trying to achieve. The problem is that not all of those guns are disposed of. The RCMP take home the ones they want. There have been some expensive guns handed in by unknowing people.
not convinced about the registration thing because of past government actions. Registration tends to lead to confiscation.

Similar incidents across the country have tested Canada’s self-defence laws and the limits of a homeowner’s right to defend their place of residence.

Jag Virk, Mian’s defence lawyer, told the Toronto Star that the intruder had a gun and was attacking Mian’s mother who lives with him.

At approximately 5 a.m. on Sunday morning, Halton Police said a group of suspects approached the house on Gibson Crescent with the intent of committing a robbery. Upon entry to the residence, the intruders were met with multiple gunshots from Ali Mian, the 22-year-old occupant of the house.

A man has been charged with second-degree murder for shooting a home invader on Feb. 19 in Milton, Ont.

Virk also said that his client’s firearm is registered. Mian called the police to request assistance after shooting one of the suspects.

Mian now faces a second-degree murder charge while Romario Clarke, a 20 year-old from Oshawa, is facing charges of breaking and entering as well as unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Sections 34 and 35 of the Criminal Code say someone is not guilty of an offence if they respond to force or threat of force against them or a person they’re protecting, or repel someone entering without permission or threatening their property. The defensive act must be “reasonable in the circumstances.”

However police have prosecuted when they believed the defender used excessive force.

Ontario lawyer Edward Burlew, who specializes in firearms-related cases, said “it has been dealt with on a very uneven basis.”

“It has been primarily driven by the individual opinions and emotions of police and prosecutors.”

OPP seize pen gun during stolen vehicle chase
Four youths face charges

It almost sounds like a James Bond gimmick weapon.


But no, a gun that looks just like a pen is a real, if rare, thing.


Toronto OPP officers say they took possession of one on Wednesday night while chasing four youths under the age of 18 in a stolen vehicle on Salem Rd. in Ajax.

“I’ve heard of them before, I don’t see them very often,” OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said Friday of the pen gun.

“It’s strange. It’s just a single-shot, 22-calibre pistol that you wouldn’t even recognize. Totally illegal, obviously.”



All four teens face stolen property and other charges, plus one youth faces weapon offences charges. None of the accused can be named due to the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

“They were in a stolen vehicle — we boxed them in, they tried to take off,” said Schmidt. “We stopped them. They were arrested.”
