Is it illegal to defend yourself in Canada?
In Tuesday’s incident — the 12th such shooting in February — a south Vancouver mother watched in horror as two gunmen forced their way into her home and pointed a gun at her son.
Mabel Mohammed said the gunmen were asking for someone named Azim, whom Mohammed said the family does not know.
They then shot and wounded her son Aleem, 19, in the shoulder, she said.
His brother, Amir, then wrestled the gun away and shot one of the assailants dead, Mohammed said, adding that the other assailant fled. (StarPhoenix 2/17/09)
Can you guess who was arrested? Amir. His brother was shot and he took a gun away from one of the assailants to protect his family and he gets arrested!
