    Dogs are fuzzy

    When I kill a rabid raccoon, chase off an aggressive bear, etc. there is no report of the use of my pistol in what is essentially a self-defense situation.  Similarly, trespassers who respond to direction to leave with veiled threats of violence, and comply after being told that they are drunk, and I am not, and I am armed, and they are not, don't get a report (I should point out that from time to time, a conversation is impossible, and that it has been less than a decade since one of those confrontations involved me being strangled by two large young men, whose buddies eventually pulled them off before I had to shoot them - the pistol in my pocket was cocked and pointed at one of their chests while I waited for what I hoped would be an intervention to allow this to return to a stand-off awaiting the arrival of the police.  That event was prosecuted as an assault, and would not show up on a search for firearm use.).
