Here is Another cross post from FreakOutNation thanks to my dear, generous friend @Anomaly100. I don't know what I'd do without her. Check this out:

Guns don’t kill people, dogs with guns do? 35 year-old Gregory Dale Lanier is recovering after police say he was shot by his pet dog on Saturday. The gangsta’ doggy kicked a .380 pistol that was on the truck’s floor while Lanier was driving his pickup truck along State Road 17 North, which resulted in the gun discharging.

Lanier said that he thought the gun was unloaded, but quickly learned otherwise. Later he told police that he heard a “boom, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg,” 

Sebring Police Commander Steve Carr says he never heard of a case like this before and determined that no attempted murder charges will be pursued.

Police have ruled the shooting accidental.

Well he’s lucky. My cats would have capped his truck driving ass.
