The man who tried to shoot seven puppies was himself shot when one of the dogs put its paw on his .38-caliber revolver’s trigger.
Jerry Allen Bradford, 37, was holding two puppies — one in his arms and another in his left hand — when the dog in his hand wiggled and put its paw on the trigger. The gun then discharged, the sheriff’s report said.
Bradford said he decided to shoot the 3-month-old shepherd-mix dogs in the head because he couldn’t find them a home, according to the sheriff’s office.
In the charge statement, the city attorney said that the puppy did not have a gun permit which is a violation of Florida state law. A bail bond for the puppy has not been set as of this morning.
New Delhi, India – India may just have found the solution towards gun control, and other countries are closely watching.
A gun company in this nation of 1.2 Billion people has just manufactured a gun designed for women: light, sleek and pink. The idea of a pink pistol came about as a result of increasing rape and violence against women. In its marketing campaign, the gun manufacturer says that “it is time women started carrying guns to protect themselves from rapists and attackers.”
Now, the Indian Parliament is considering passing a legislation that would ban the manufacture of all guns, except the pink pistol. The measure is expected to reduce gun ownership among men who constitute 77 percent of all gun owners. The legislators believe that the pink pistol will discourage men who are much concerned about their “macho” image from purchasing this deadly weapon.
Under the proposed legislation, current gun owners will be given six months from the passage of the law to surrender their firearms or trade them in for pink pistols.
The American National Rifle Association (NRA) is reportedly very nervous about this Indian legislation and has mobilized its top lobbyists in Washington, D.C. to make sure that no such legislation is introduced in the U.S. Congress.
