With best friends like these, who needs enemies?

An Iowa man says his dog inadvertently shot him while they were roughhousing Wednesday.

Fifty-one-year-old Richard Remme, of Fort Dodge, told police he was playing with his dog, Balew, on the couch and tossed the dog off his lap. He says when the pit bull-Labrador mix bounded back up, he must have disabled the safety on the gun in his belly band and stepped on the trigger.

The gun fired, striking one of Remme's legs. He was treated at a hospital and released later that day.

Remme told The Messenger newspaper that Balew is a "big wuss" and lay down beside him and cried because he thought he had done something wrong.

High above the hushed crowd Rex tried to remain focused but couldn’t shake one nagging thought ..... he was an old dog and this was a new trick

Obviously this dog is waaaaaaayyyyyyyy smarter than his owner.

You could add the percentage of advocates whom consider reasonable legislation regarding gun ownership a direct assault on their 2nd Amendment rights. The amendment will never be repealed lest we are willing to see blood run in the streets (a scenario some of the most fearful would sadly embrace), but it is irresponsible not to be willing to have reasonable dialogue about the problems. We all have a dog in this fight, so to speak.

what is quote reasonable is debateable.

for the left "reasonable is hindering people who have not committed a crime.

for the right" reasonable is hindering the people who have commited a gun crime

big difference in "reasonable" between the two.

other people might say "reasonable is actually following current sentencing laws without exception

my version of reasonable?

life in prison for any gun crime ( the only exception being if they do not live long enough to see a trial )

And until we can come to a consensus that we are willing to: first acknowledge the problem, and second, to ignore the hyperbole (re: fear...from both sides), and finally, to take part in an adult discussion and (gasp) be willing to compromise on legislation, nothing will change and we will continue to get the daily, weekly, monthly tally of those killed by guns.

Discharging a firearm in the neighborhood he lives in is against the law, genius.  That’s because it is incredibly reckless and a threat to public health to have guns going off in densely populated areas.  There’s no question of his guilt, as he had to have the bullet removed from his dumb ass.

I didn't see in the article that it said it was illegal to fire a gun in his town. Seems kind of strange since there are gun ranges in Ft. Dodge, IA.

No is questioning whether it happened or not. He SAID it happened--duh!

Anyways, the story said NOTHING about the man being charged--maybe you can tell the cops to go arrest him.

Might want to check the city ordinances regarding guns before you do, though.

It's called a variance, or a special use permit, and it would come with very stringent criteria and by no means would it be a slam dunk to obtain one.  You really shouldn't try to one-up a land development professional on matters of land development when you don't even have the ambition to use google to answer your questions first.

Lol - suuuurrre ... it was an accident.  A dog released the safety and pulled the trigger.  It couldn't possibly be that the idiot mishandled his gun and shot himself.  I mean who wouldn't believe that it was his thumbless dog who was the guilty party.  He may as well have said that a UFO visited him, and the aliens accidentally shot him when they were investigating his things, and probing his anus.  People like you would gladly accept that explanation, as long as this dumbass's rights to accidentally shoot someone else in the future were firmly protected.

Here's what's funny - one of you gun nuts here (can't remember which one but this applies to pretty much all of you) has said repetedly in the past that there is no such thing as a gun accident.  According to them, the discharge of a firearm is never an accident, it is either intentional and for purpose, or gross negligence on the part of the gun handler.  Now it's only an accident when it's most convenient for you guys.
