Driving on my way to work this morning a neighbor that I don't really know was walking his dog heading towards me on the sidewalk. I slowed down and as I did, a pit bull attacked his dog. It was vicious. The pit bull was about 50 pounds heavier than the owners dog. The man and two dogs spilled out in front of my car (our new Jeep), I swerved into the oncoming lane and stopped to see if honking would help distract the pit bull and watched as the man pulled out a gun, took it out of his holster, and shot the pit bull twice. I heard a something hit the car and I didn't want to stay and get out because of the pit bull and now a handgun and proceeded to the police station.
I discovered a bullet hole in our car! One of the bullets ricocheted off the pavement and went through the rear passenger side bumper. We still don't know what happened to the bullet.
I found out the pit bull was killed and the neighbor is being brought up on charges because he wasn't defending himself - just his dog. The incident took place in front of the pit bulls' owners which included their small children. (Why a family would own a pit bull is a mystery to me their instincts take over too easily and their instinct is to attack).
I am shaken and very stirred right now. The images of the pit bull attacking that dog and a man shooting a gun in my neighborhood will remain with me for years.
Maybe we should self deport gun owners to the lower southern states.
