[11] Gary Mauser, "Firearms and Self Defense: the Canadian Case", op. cit. Existing Canadian firearm laws strongly penalize anyone who uses a firearm for self defense. As succesful defensive firearm use most often doesn't involve injury or property loss, these incidents are rarely, if ever, reported to the police. Consequently, police reports on defensive uses of firearms are restricted to the minority of instances where self defense with a firearm had failed, resulting in injury or death to the gun owner and/or a family member. Concluding, on this basis alone, that armed resistance is ineffective or dangerous if obviously fallacious.
