Charge Withdrawn for Carelessly Firing a Handgun


CC: s.86(1) – Careless Use of a Firearm


My client and his friend were drinking Jack Daniels and firing a handgun outdoors, in a rural area. They were stopped by the police, in a high-risk takedown, after the incident was reported by a neighbour.


Upon providing proof of completion of a Firearms Safety Course, the charge was withdrawn. No criminal conviction.
