The Shocking Truth About Gun Violence - By Dogs (humorous, but true)

A little statistic disguised as humor...

Through the messy cluster of all the cold, soulless numbers that represent lives forever altered by a gun, there's one startling and important statistic that's always left out of every gun control debate: Almost every year, one person is shot by a dog.

The images that come to mind are funny. The reality is these firearms are available for anyone, including children, to have accidents.

In late February of this year, a dog in Florida kicked a gun laying on the floor of its owner's truck, setting it off and shooting the guy in the leg.

In September 2012, a hunter from France had his hand blown off after his dog pulled the trigger.

If dogs aren't firing at you directly, they're taking a blind chance and firing bullets into your home, like a dog in Massachusetts did recently.

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre famously said, "The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." What LaPierre failed to mention is that the good guy with a gun probably has a dog, and that dog is going to shoot the good guy before he can do good. He won't even see it coming. Who would suspect man's best friend?
