This seemed like a slam-dunk to me...

...but now it's official...

"There’s all kinds of good news here. First and foremost, Mr. Thomson did nothing wrong and should never have been charged in the first place. But an acquittal on all counts will have to do. Second, there is further clarification of Canada’s sloppy gun laws, and a reasonable one, at that."

"And best of all, a message has been sent to overreaching Crown attorneys. Canadians have the right to use firearms to defend themselves and their homes."
Here's a thought... suppose these criminals had firebombed a police officer's home.

What charges would have been laid in that case?
