How often do you read about guns in the news where the line “the gun went off…” or “The Gun Fired…” or other passive voice uses to give the illusion that guns simply fire on their own will, and they are horrifically dangerous.
I won’t go so far as to say dogs as a whole, or even any particular breed of dog is inherently dangerous, but as live animals they can indeed go off on their own:
olton police say a 2-year-old boy has been fatally mauled by as many as five dogs….Officers answering a call of a dog attack found the boy had been severely bitten on his upper body. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Petty terrible, but hey, let’s just ban guns, because there’s nothing to see here!
