From the article: "Peel police said that the men, two of whom were armed, were confronted by the homeowner. A struggle ensued, resulting in Abukar's death."

It sounds like Abukar was shot with his own gun. If so, I think that the other two might be charged in his death.

Let's recap this: Armed criminals break into a man's home and the home owner is able to shoot one sending the others fleeing.

Sounds like a very good outcome IMO. We could be reading about an entire family being slaughtered. Criminals choose their behaviour, people defending themselves are forced to act.

By breaking the law, the perps have knowingly taken someone else's rights away.  In this instance, they took away the right of this family to be safe in their own home.  Maybe if the punishments were harsher, then maybe the would be perps wouldn't bother trying.

Dang, you can't have a loaded, ready-to-go gun in your nightstand in Canada?
What a shame, I would do it anyway.

Exactly - as long as it's safe to keep one in that manner (i.e. kids, etc.) - it's your word against nobody that the gun wasn't stored appropriately.

I grew up in the country where dad had to protect our animals from being prey.  We always had a loaded gun near the door.  We were raised not to touch it.  Only aim at something you plan to kill.

Good for the homeowner.  What will make this more amazing is if actually did get a hold of the intruders weapon and shoot him with it.  It would just be plain ol' boring if he shot him with his own gun.

LOL!  I agree!

Not exactly to you, Palladin, just those who truly believe that guns are the answer and everyone should have one.

I wonder if the owner(s) will be charged with anything?


#1.....Good Job Home Owners!!!!! ......If this happened more often, dumb asses would think twice about breaking in.



In Nevada, this would be fine.....It is prefectlly legal to kill someone in your home...( intruder )



This states Las Vegas, but it is State wide...

If someone enters my home, can I kill him in self-defense in Las Vegas, NV?


In certain circumstances. If someone enters your home with the obvious intent to commit a felony (such as burglary) or to physically hurt someone in the house, it is justifiable to kill the intruder. (NRS 200.12)



Also.....

What is self-defense in
Las Vegas, NV?



Self-defense is a legal defense in Nevada that excuses violent behavior that otherwise would be criminal. As long as you're reasonably trying to protect yourself, the law recognizes that you shouldn't be penalized for hurting or even mortally wounding someone else.

http://www.shouselaw...lf-defense.html




Nevada law, NRS 200.120, ........... “justifiable homicide is the killing of a human being in necessary self-defense, or in defense of habitation, property or person, against one who manifestly intends or endeavors, by violence or surprise, to commit a felony ... in a violent, riotous, tumultuous or surreptitious manner.”

I am glad to hear no one other than the robber was harmed in this case...

The loss of human life is sad, but the man made his choices. And that included threatening the potential safety of those children.
