    Can you legally shoot someone for trespassing!

    People, I have a question on trespassing. If someone was to come onto my land with a snowmobile, truck, quad etc. and be riding around without my permission. Can I legally shoot them? Say I have a few NO TRESPASSING signs up.

    No. Shooting someone for trespassing is definitely illegal.

    Re: Can you legally shoot someone for trespassing!

    Well this is where it gets good. You can, but...... Letís say you do you had better be quite prepared to explain yourself, you had also make sure that there is only one side to your story. If you shoot someone for trespassing your wrong, however if you confront them and you feel that your life is in danger you have the inherent right to defend yourself. Now I have copied the criminal code below and you can make of it what you will.

    Criminal Code, Sections 34-37
    34. (1) Every one who is unlawfully assaulted without having provoked the assault is justified in repelling force by force if the force he uses is not intended to cause death or grievous bodily harm and is no more than is necessary to enable him to defend himself.
    (2) Every one who is unlawfully assaulted and who causes death or grievous bodily harm in repelling the assault is justified if
    (a) he causes it under reasonable apprehension of death or grievous bodily harm from the violence with which the assault was originally made or with which the assailant pursues his purposes; and
    (b) he believes, on reasonable grounds, that he cannot otherwise preserve himself from death or grievous bodily harm.
    35. Every one who has without justification assaulted another but did not commence the assault with intent to cause death or grievous bodily harm, or has without justification provoked an assault on himself by another, may justify the use of force subsequent to the assault if
    (a) he uses the force
    (i) under reasonable apprehension of death or grievous bodily harm from the violence of the person whom he has assaulted or provoked, and
    (ii) in the belief, on reasonable grounds, that it is necessary in order to preserve himself from death or grievous bodily harm;
    ( b) he did not, at any time before the necessity of preserving himself from death or grievous bodily harm arose, endeavour to cause death or grievous bodily harm; and
    (c) he declined further conflict and quitted or retreated from it as far as it was feasible to do so before the necessity of preserving himself from death or grievous bodily harm arose.
    36. Provocation includes, for the purposes of sections 34 and 35, provocation by blows, words or gestures.
    37. (1) Every one is justified in using force to defend himself or any one under his protection from assault, if he uses no more force than is necessary to prevent the assault or the repetition of it.
    (2) Nothing in this section shall be deemed to justify the wilful infliction of any hurt or mischief that is excessive, having regard to the nature of the assault that the force used was intended to prevent.

    I think there might be a Caliber Restriction though... kinnda like deer hunting...hate to see them suffer

    Oh and you might want to make sure you read through the hunting reg's closely to make sure your within the proper Season... There is also a Baiting restriction in place for the Human species, I know this for a fact...Happy Hunting

    Why was i sledding on your land yesturday? lol.I thought i heard a gunshot over my sled yesturday.I think you can answer that one yourself.I dont think the no trespassing signs would hold up in court.Then again if it says no trespassing i dont go there.
