Canadian Police Demonize Gun Owner

Ontario police recently shut down a portion of a major highway for an entire night because of a minor police call involving someone who owned registered guns, according to the Toronto Sun.

The big offense turned out to be that trigger locks weren't properly attached to his registered guns, even though there were no kids in his home and the guns were stored in a "closet" (actually I am told in a gun case). Is this really serious?

The highway was reopened early Monday morning after the man, who claims he had no idea of what was going on, surrendered to police and was taken into custody.

“They threw a flash grenade through my window,” said the battered and bruised man, who left the courtroom after being released on $4,000 bail.

“They handcuffed me and dragged me out on my face,” he added.

Outside of the court he hugged his family members, who reportedly shook their heads and wept.

“We’re confused,” one family member said.
