They REALLY don’t like guns up there. The moral of the story, I suppose, is if you want to rob someone, do it in Canada.
Why is that?
On Canada’s East Coast, armed thugs stormed into an occupied residence to rob the two men inside. It ended badly for the would-be thieves.
Desperate, and fearing for their lives, they fought the gun away from one attacker and opened fire. It drove their attackers off, and one of them had minor injuries.
That was the GOOD news. They managed to drive away the attackers without getting killed or robbed.
In Texas, the guys would be local heroes, and strangers would be offering to buy them a beer.
This wasn’t Texas. It’s Canada, so the HOMEOWNER is facing charges.

Well, THAT sucks.
So, if you’re gonna be robbed SOMEWHERE, do it in Texas.
