    Exactly right! More people need to "get it".

    The last time I was asked what the purpose was for owning my handguns I gave the following answer:

    To protect life.

    For use in connection with my lawful occupation or profession.

    For target practice under the auspices of a gun club.

    For target practice under conditions to be attached to a permit.

    When I purchased my first handgun, the registration certificate had the following under purpose:

    “Self Defence”

    Yes, I am old.

    I’ve been told that I was born while dinosaurs walked the earth.

    They may have exaggerated slightly.
    To show that men can travel to the moon and return, use the American experience.

    To show that public safety isnít hurt by responsible individuals carrying to protect life, use the American experience.

    So you are the reason they're extinct, not the meteor. I hope you have one of their heads over the fireplace.

    Trying to outrun a young adult male is not an option for most people.
    Running from your home in the winter in Canada is not an option.

    Old people don't run.
    I can't think of a single situation, not one, where running away will help when someone else is being attacked.

    In the vast majority of situation, for almost all potential victims, running away is not a solution to the threat of a violent attack.

    PS.
    Your right/duty to Pursue, and use force to Arrest and Detain a criminal is recognized in the Act.
    Your right/duty to run towards an attacker and use force to defend others recognized in the Act.


    For detailed interpretation see:

    Bill C-26 (S.C. 2012 c. 9) Reforms to Self-Defence and Defence of Property: Technical Guide for Practitioners

    Prime Minister Harper made it clear in 2012 that Canadians are no longer expected to run away from criminals.
    Crooks should never mess with old people. The threat of life in prison isn't such a big deal when they get old,so,they'll just blast 'em and be done with it.
