Having read this article, I am left wondering what Canadian law deems a proper response to such a violent attack as that of this burglar.
( Its hard to believe that, as a criminal, he 'd not obey the anti-gun law, right ? )
In addition to the attorney 's defense fees, which will operate the same as a fine upon the defending homeowner, there is the wear-and-tear on his nervous system, as he sweats out how this will end. In America, it is common that one loses his professional licenses, upon conviction of a felony. I don 't know if that applies in Canadia.
One wonders what the Canadian prosecutor "Crown Counsel" wud have done, in the same circumstances. Docile surrender ? " Take me; I 'm yours " ??
