Dennis Galloway says right to self-defence eroded in Canada, RCMP disagree
A jeweller from Port Alberni, B.C., who shot an armed robber five times is taking a public stand for stronger rights to bear arms in Canada.
"The police can't control the crime anymore," Dennis Galloway said. "The government isn't controlling it anymore. We are relying on the politicians and the RCMP to take care of us — and we should all be responsible for our own safety and security."
Galloway was speaking out after staying silent for months about how he opened fire one afternoon last fall on the masked robber and accomplice trying to rob his store.
