This is what happens in places without guns–Case IV

Imagine being in the other room as someone counts down to the moment he is going to murder another member of your household–and there is nothing you can do about it because of government restrictions on firearms.  It’s not just terrible nightmare–it happened:

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. (CP) — Terrified occupants of a southern Ontario home were forced to listen from another room as a gunman counted down before shooting a 29-year-old man to death on Christmas Eve.

The execution-style killing happened shortly after Shelston Broome was confronted by the three men in his home around 2:30 a.m. Saturday, police said.

Two other occupants in the home were forced at gunpoint to lie face-down on the floor and were pistol-whipped when they were slow to obey, police said.

Investigators said the gunmen then took Broome into another room and counted down before killing him as the two other people listened in horror.
