D.C. Gun Laws - Try this

Published:

To Keep and Bear Arms

Amid all the hubbub surrounding Sen. Dianne Feinstein's "assault weapons" ban, there are still everyday stories of average law-abiding citizens using firearms to defend themselves and others from evil -- or in this case, serious harm. An 11-year-old boy was riding his bike in a Washington, DC, neighborhood when he came upon three pit bulls. The dogs pounced, mauling the boy.

Fortunately, a neighbor saw what was happening, grabbed his handgun and rushed out to shoot one of the pit bulls. A DC police officer patrolling nearby on a bicycle heard the shot, and came to the boy's aid as well, shooting the other two pit bulls. The boy's injuries were severe, but he will survive, thanks to the quick action of this neighbor.

However, the hero is under investigation for violating local gun laws -- discharging his weapon while not on his own property. No word yet on whether charges will be filed, but DC's gun laws are what put children at risk.

I wonder if they boy's parents are anti-gunners and if they are they'll see the light.

Doesn't matter if it was or not, The 2nd says, we can defend ourselves, doesn't matter if it's one bullet or 50, I hope the owners of the dogs are punished severly also.

Parsadisenow,

The article stated:

It was a handgun. Interrstimng you skipped right over that and wanted to know if it was an assault gun. Speaks volumes.
