As a dog I am always amazed at how the human mind works. Let’s looks at some facts.
as both humans and dogs know, on December 14, 2012 a man walked into an
elementary school in Sandy Hook New Jersey and killed 26 children and
teachers with a Bushmaster rifle which can fire more than 13 rounds per
was the second most deadly shooting in the United States. The most
deadly shooting was on April 16, 2007 when 32 people at Virginia Tech
University. He used a Walther P22 semi-automatic weapon.
Neither the Walther P22 semi-automatic weapon or the Bushmaster rifle have been banned.
this isn’t a blog about gun control. In 2012 23 people were killed by
pitbull attacks in the United States. That is three less than were
killed in five minutes at the Sandy Hook Elementary school.
hoped to give you a number of the amount of municipalities that have
banned pitbulls but I can’t count that high. What I can give you is a
link that shows the number of areas that have banned pitbulls in the
when humans talk about their right to bear arms they come back to the
point that it is not the gun that is responsible for the death but the
gun owner. Don’t ban the weapon, punish the owners.
when it comes to pitbulls that argument is not heard. It is the fault
of the dog, not the owner, which is typical because when it comes to
humans and dogs, humans always find a way to blame the dogs.
I understand this to a point. A pitbull has a brain and a will that a
gun does not have. So an argument can be made that the pitbull makes a
decision to kill. Conversely there and hundreds of thousands of pitbulls
who are loving dogs and would never hurt anyone. No one owns a gun that
was made not to fire a bullet. Pitbulls are not weapons, are not
designed to kill, they are turned into weapons by their owners, the same
way that guns on their own do not kill anyone but needs a human hand
holding it to do damage.
pitbulls aren’t weapons of mass destruction. A pitbull cannot kill a
bunch of kids in a classroom in a few seconds no matter how twisted it’s
owner has made it.
the second amendment protects gun owners the rights of dog owners begin
with the first line of the constitution which states: “We the People of
the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish
Justice, insure domestic Tranquility....” As any dog owner know nothing
insures domestic tranquility like a good dog.
