    Nobody was hurt, a stray pitbull with an attitude is dead - good.
    This is the dog of choice for the trailer trash in the sunshine state .

    Great job by this guy

    According to his neighbours they have animal control where they are.
    Nothing happen because he was available to go in the house. If it had been some thug, would he be justified going in the house to get a gun an come back out to shoot someone on the sidewalk?
    And for it being on his property, from where he pointed does not look like it was still on his property
    Everyone see people that they assume to be thugs would it be justified to just shoot them cause the opportunity is there? no!
    There is no sense waiting for something to happen i agree but you nor myself was there to call it thats why I was speaking about what i would have personnally done.

    Comparing a dog to a person now? Interesting, the plot builds.

    Not yet anyway but, the United States Humane Society (USHS) and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are constantly trying to submit legislation giving "animals" the same rights as humans.

    I know it! It's insane. I remember, here in Florida about a year and a half ago, it was on the evening news. There was a kitten stuck in a storm drain, the fire dept. including a paramedic unit responded, along with law enforcement, eventually called a city road crew, who came out and jack-hammered up part of the sidewalk to open the storm drain to get the kitten out. I realize a kitten story gives everyone a "warm and fuzzy" feeling.
    But when you stop and realize that there were tens of thousands of tax dollars spent to save this kitten.
    Which turned out apparently to be a stray...it went to the animal shelter after it's rescue. It is completely absurd, when we don't have enough money to pay our teachers properly, and there are PEOPLE not animals that go to bed hungry each night right here in this country and we waste that much money on one cat.
    I just don't get it. Like I always say, common sense isn't very common anymore.

    Ever since last year, I am 100% in agreeance. (What the heck... Agreeance isn't a word in my spell-check? Really? I mean... agreement is kind of the same thing, but not exactly in usage...)

But taking his age into concideration and condition (in Wheel chair) it might be justifiable.

    The guy did what most people would not have, then they would have said , after it ripped the throat out of a small child playing, "jeezzz, animal control should have done something"

    There's an interesting situation unfolding right now in Everett, WA about a guy who shot and killed a pit bull that had threatened his daughter, and then backed him up against the wall of his house, on his property. You guys can probably figure how the reader feedback debate is going in the local newspapers.

    I wrote about it here and it's probably going to get me skewered by WA dog lovers.

    I occasionally take walks down my road and almost always take a pistol along. Recently when I didn't, however, a pit bull that was in somebody's yard came at me, but it seemed to follow commands well enough that it responded immediately to the owner.

    What if the owner hadn't been there? I did have my Spyderco, but....

    Self-defense doesn't always mean "against criminals." At least where I live, it also covers defending one's self against an animal (bear, cougar, dangerous dog...) and that's good.

    One cannot "imagine" a dog attack, so I fully sympathize with this guy. Years ago I was attacked by a dog owned by a jerk who didn't seem to care the animal ripped my jacket pretty bad. Fortunately, that's all that got ripped. When one is confined to a wheelchair, one is definitely at a disadvantage in any kind of self-defense situation.
