Moral of the story: Beware!! Its Coming soon for you too.
Today's headline from Vancouver BC
"Jewelry storeowner investigated in shooting of thief"
"The incident began when three men barged into the Atson Jewellery and Gold store on Robson Street near Homer Street around 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday . One began smashing jewelry cases with a hammer while another waved a gun around, police said."
Police say that's when the storeowner pulled out his own gun and shot at one of the men, possibly wounding him. All three men then fled the store, running down the street into a car waiting in an alley"
"No one is allowed to have a gun on their premises for protection in the city. We have laws that govern the ownership and handling of guns. Anyone in possession of a gun has to have it safely stored in a designated place," said Insp. Eric Grummisch.
The owner did tell CBC News he's a hunter and a target shooter who knows how to use a gun. Police confirmed the owner's guns are legal, but said it's too early to know if the owner will be charged.
(in other words, he can hunt but he can't protect his own life)
He also said "No, I am not worried about myself, okay? We're fine — family fine — okay?" he said.
Sounds like his family was on the premises.
