Guns Don't Shoot People, Dogs Shoot People

Slog tipper Steven sent this:

A Frostproof man reported to Sebring police on Feb. 23 that he was traveling in his truck when his dog kicked a gun on the truck's floor, resulting in him being shot in the leg, according to a report.

Such nice dogs.

Frostproof, but not bulletproof. Ba-dum-bum.

Meanwhile, residents of Bulletproof, Florida, just laugh.

"Stupid global warming," mutters Gregory Dale Lanier. "Just wait until next winter and you'll get yours."

Not the first time this happens. I'm pretty sure a turkey once shot a hunter once if I remember correctly.

Good dog but next time aim a little higher.

But if the owner had only had a gun of his own to defend himself from the dog!

Oh, wait...

He'd have been better off letting the dog drive.

Was the dog licensed?

Sheriff Arpaio has hired Steven Seagall to train vigilante poodles to patrol trucks.

From the article:
"when his dog kicked his unloaded .380 pistol causing it to fire and the bullet struck his leg."

And then:
"The report said Lanier was not only surprised that the gun was loaded, but also that it was actually a 9mm weapon."

This guy is an idiot
