    Just to add one more thing.

    The only reason I have ever even considered getting a gun is because I have had so many close calls trying to walk my dog. I don't know if this is an AZ thing or what, but about 75% of the time when I have tried to walk my dog we have encountered loose dogs or aggressive dogs that the owners can't control.

    Dogs are the most dangerous animals in the U.S. 31 people were killed by dogs last year. I believe the average is 25 - 30 a year. Compare that to, for instance, bears who kill less than one person a year on average.
