Guns don't kill people, dogs kill people

Man dies after dog steps on rifle, causing it to discharge, Kansas officials say

A man died in Kansas on Saturday after officials believe he was struck by a rifle that discharged after a dog stepped on it.

The shooting unfolded around 9:40 a.m. in a truck on the 1600 block of East 80th Street, a country road about 46 miles south of Wichita, Wellington Fire and EMS Chief Tim Hay told NBC News. The dog stepped on the rifle in the back of the truck, causing it to fire and hit the back of the man, who was found in the front passenger seat, he said.

Emergency medical personnel administered CPR before the 30-year-old victim, whose name has not yet been released, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Hay.

Another person who was in the driver's seat was physically unharmed, he said.

It was not immediately clear who owned the truck and the dog or who called 911.

The investigation is ongoing, but officials say it appears to be a hunting-related accident, according to the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office, which added that hunting gear was also found in the back of the car.
If the driver is the owner of the gun, will he be charged with involuntary manslaughter, or does that only happen to Hollywood actors?

Equal rights for others does not mean less rights for you. It's not pie.

Some people might think this example is a good argument for not allowing dogs to own firearms. But they need to realize that it may have been self defense. Personally, I believe there should be more armed dogs.

So is this a gun control issue or an animal control issue?
Okay... There's all kinds of things wrong with what you just said.

I think it was a love triangle crime of passion. Dogs get very jealous we all know this.
For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

That's the trouble with gun-dogs.
For Christianity, by identifying truth with faith, must teach-and, properly understood, does teach-that any interference with the truth is immoral. A Christian with faith has nothing to fear from the facts

I believe it is a gun control issue. Clearly the dog intended shoot the driver and missed through poor gun control. Forget dogs.
The real problem, as the visual artiste known as 'Far Side of Larson' taught us, we need more armed bears.

O Sue, yet again I owe you dearly. This time for introducing me to Philomena Clunk. I just spent at least 30 minutes that seemed more like half an hour with her on You Tube. My life has been changed for the better. She is magnificent. She must have studied Burns & Allen.
