Man Charged As Police Find He Shot Home Invader With The ‘Wrong’ Gun

The following article appeared on the Conservative Daily Post on August 1st

Earlier this week, a Canadian man was arrested for attempted murder after wrestling a gun away from a burglar and shooting him with it. Situations like this underscore why the Second Amendment is so important.

According to reports, Kyle Earl Munroe was recently taken into custody by Halifax Regional Police and charged with attempted murder after shooting someone who tried breaking into his house in Porters Lake, Nova Scotia. Specifically, three men, armed with guns, allegedly broke into Munroe’s house and attempted to rob him and another person inside. Upon entering the house, however, a fight broke out between the burglars and the residents. During the struggle, Munroe managed to seize one of the firearms from the robbers. He then opened fire and shot one of the thugs multiple times, causing both to flee. 

Responding officers managed to track down the injured suspect, who had non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, and brought him into custody. They also took Munroe into custody and charged him with “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.”

When asked for more information about the charges that Munroe faces, Chris Hansen, a spokeswoman at the Public Prosecution Service, told reporters, “right now they’re just pending charges.” Despite this, Munroe, who is expected to appear back in court on August 22nd, is reportedly prohibited from leaving his residence except for essential activities such as work or medical appointments. He must also attend court as ordered, keep the peace, and be of good behavior, remain in Nova Scotia, not consume drugs or alcohol, not possess a cell phone or pager, have no weapons, and answer the door to police when they check at his home.

Unsurprisingly, numerous people were outraged over the charges filed against Monroe. On Facebook, one person wrote, “UNBELIEVABLE!!!! He wrestled a weapon away from one of the intruders and HE is charged with unlawful possession???? WTF????? This is INSANITY and the protest needs to be loud and long. We have a RIGHT to defend ourselves for crying out loud. The police and the ‘law’ have way overstepped the bounds of what is right and just plain common sense. I am ANGRY!”

Another user added, “so let me get this straight, 3 men break in with guns and going to rob you possible [sic] kill you, you get a gun away from them and shoot them and your [sic] the one who is going to be charged. Something wrong with this scenario!!!”

A third person noted, “this stinks of liberal corruption. What use are the police if someone cannot protect themselves or their family. Canada’s justice system and the police are betraying Canadians for criminals and terrorists thanks to liberal traitors.”  
A Corrupt State are the Baddest Guys of All

Unfortunately, this is not the first time a Canadian gun owner was charged with a crime for shooting a burglar with his own gun. Last year, Michael Woodard, a 68-year-old man living in New Brunswick, Canada, was arrested and charged with “discharging a firearm with intent and discharging a firearm in a reckless manner” after shooting an armed thug who allegedly broke into his home and tried to rob him.

Situations like this are why laws that protect gun owners, like “Stand Your Ground” laws, which allow people to use force, including deadly force, to protect themselves if they feel their life is in danger, are so important. Such laws protect law-abiding citizens who are just trying to protect themselves, like Monroe, from prosecution.

Conservatives and gun owners in Canada need work together to expand gun rights in Canada. People should be allowed to use a gun in self-defense without having to worry about being charged with a crime.

How can something this despicably wrong-headed possibly happen? Simple. The left realize that members of an armed public are capable of defending their liberty against a tyrant/a totalitarian state. Such people represent a far greater threat to the authority of Big Brother than the odd criminal running around shooting the law abiding.

So, bring charges against one citizen for the crime of defending himself and you’ll dissuade a number of his peers arming themselves! As for the criminals who are being protected by the state…no big deal. It’s not likely they will rebel against the tyranny of Big Brother any time soon. After all, his is probably the hand that has been feeding/housing/providing such ne’er-do-wells, re-directed tax dollars over the years!  Ed.
