Armed thugs broke into a man's home, a fight ensued that ended with the victim shooting at the burglar with his own gun. The victim was arrested.


Munroe faces charges of attempted murder, intent to discharge a firearm, intent to discharge a firearm when being reckless, careless use of a firearm, improper storage of a firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm knowing that possession is unauthorized, and possession for the purpose of trafficking.


Explain yourselves Canadians.

If this is right "unauthorized possession of a firearm" then that's something.
Besides that being reckless or careless around someone that is invading you that might or would do a lot worse?
Then again you don't always know why someone are in your house, that is if you have children to something similar.
Just saying that one can be more careful with your firearm, really if you are trained with it.

What needs to be explained? Seriously, I get by now that you have little to no understanding of the law, but what is needed to be explained here? Do you really need someone to tell you that illegal possession of a firearm is illegal? It's kinda self explanatory. Unless you're talking about the shooting, in which case it's interesting how you seem to have ignored that the suspects had already left when shot.

"The two in the home seized a firearm from one of the suspects and several shots were fired as the suspects fled. Police later located one of the suspects, who had non-life-threatening gunshot wounds"

It's almost like you're lying to push an agenda or something.

Americans believe in shooting people in the back.

It's considered to be our constitutional right ...to kill someone who has obviously given up or surrendered.

No mercy, and when someone points out what is wrong with this stance.

WE also reserve the right to take on the role of the villain while trying to keep our halo straight.

Running away isn't surrendering. They can come back, sneak up on you, and kill you. It's better to down them while you still have eyes on them. If they wanted to surrender, they should have gotten on their knees with their hands on their head so they can be secured and taken into custody.

It's only really dishonorable to shoot someone in the back if you snuck up on them while they weren't fighting you, not if you were finishing off dangerous people who attacked you, your home, your family, and were just trying to escape so they can do it again another day.

Since it's the burglars initiating a crime, the home invasion, everything related to that is considered their fault, which includes the victim ending up with their firearm and chasing them away from the property.

"Running people aren't a threa-"




How are you supposed to know they aren't going to dump a few mags into your house with a second gun once in their getaway car? Its happened before. There's even a video from earlier this year in the Atlanta area of that exact thing happening when a homeowner got the drop on armed burglars. She shot and killed one after they ran and returned fire.
