Self-defence is a right, especially for rural residents

If rural landowners followed the RCMP’s recommendations about break-ins on their property, they would be sitting ducks.

Mounties want farmers, ranchers and acreage owners to do nothing. Call them, then sit back and let them catch the bad guys. Except, of course, in rural areas it’s often hard for police to get to the scene of a crime in time to do anything about it.
