    Thomson has been charged with "pointing a firearm" along with two counts of "careless storage of a firearm".

    I'm kinda wondering what's "careless" about having an unloaded firearm stored in a locked safe. What do the authorities consider "safe", keeping it disassembled with the various parts in different geographical locations and the combination of the safe only known to the local constabulary?

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: i think that the only way they would consider it "safe" if if you had blank blocks of metal in your gun safe, and would have to machine the gun out of the blocks before using it.

    The video shows them "firebombing" his yard, not his house.

    Did you watch the whole video? One security camera recorded a firebomb thrown on his house.

    Can't defend your own house/property/life with a firearm without getting arrested and losing your firearms. Maybe the homeowner should keep some molotov cocktails around to throw back. :shattered:

    From the constable who charged him:“That’s why the courts are there, to give a person an opportunity to explain their actions.â€

    Wow, I guess its guilty until proven innocent in Canada.

    Yep, Canada is not a handgun friendly place to be.

    I usually go there once a year to visit in-laws and the guns stay home. I would never make it across the border with it, and if I did and got caught with it, you would be seeing me on the news.

    Just another reason my family left when I was very young. I was born in Toronto. My parents hated the socialism, and moved here when I was 7. They told me it was because of the cold weather, until I was old enough to know what socialism was.

    I'm so glad we live here.

    Canada is a beautiful place, and Toronto is a great city, but socialism and gun laws just don't work. The gun laws got so bad, my extended family who all live up there just gave up hunting. There were too many fees, licenses, forms etc to handle. It's just a PITA, and it's a shame really. If you own a handgun up there (which basically takes an act of God to get), if you want to transport it, say from one of your houses to another, you have to tell the police, fill out a form, and tell them which route you are taking, what times you will be on the road, and all the details surrounding your trip..... and God help you if you have a loaded magazine with you in the car. :screwy:

    Again, I'm so thankful to my mom and dad for moving us to Georgia. :righton:
