Canadian Man Charged with Attempted Murder After Wrestling Away Gun, Shooting Suspect


A Canadian man wrestled a gun away from a home invasion suspect and shot him with it.  Now, he is facing numerous charges.  One of them includes attempted murder.

The Chronicle Herald covered the incident on July 25.  John Lott, Jr. also shared the story on Twitter.

The man charged is named Kyle Earl Monroe.

Two men broke into his home, but they did not realize someone was there.  Kyle wrestled with the victims in an attempt to defend himself.  During the scuffle, he got hold of one of the invader’s guns.  Then, survival instinct kicked in and he fired shots.  Both robbers fled, but not before Monroe was able to shoot one.  Fortunately (or unfortunately), the robber suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Now, in a bizarre twist of fate, Monroe is being punished.  The strict gun control laws in Canada have made him a criminal.  Here are all of the charges against him:

  • 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
  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking.

In response, Chris Hansen, the Public Prosecution Service spokeswoman, emphasized the charges are pending.

It is obvious that the amount of gun control laws passed are civilians.  With such strict laws in place, Monroe might have been better off robbed, possibly even dead.

Although this happened in Canada, the U.S. has been following down a similar road.  It is important to see how gun control laws practically tie up civilians.  In fact, it almost empowers the criminals.

Fortunately, we live in a society of checks and balances.  By sharing this story, we are all helping fight the absurd amount of gun control laws being passed.
