Mark:

It is a tough call to make, but there are other considerations to keep in mind.

If we say that you can take the shot and kill/wound the victim and say.. "well I gave it my best shot." you can have more wounded people.

Police who shoot civilian hostages often times end up with desk jobs and forced out of the police departments. Both my father and I know military personal who were grilled for months by the US military for being suspected of shooting the wrong people with guns. (not uniformed persons, while our people are under fire)

Worst yet, we have sent our own soldiers who fight for us to prison for missing the insurgents and killing civilians...

If we have these rules for war, the least civilized place on earth, then we ought to have the same rules for our civilized areas such as peaceful nations.

Personal self control and discipline to move into position to take a 100% safe shot must be a requirement of a gun owner who has decided to shoot. They (the law abiding shooter) must endure the horror they will have to watch as they move to be able to shoot without doing additional harm.

It sucks, but if we demand it of war, than we must demand it of civilian life.

Question is: Who shot the boy? Was it the guy who responded? Was it the police officer? Between the two; was the bullet a well aimed shot at the dog but penetrated? The other question is: "Could face charges." I sure do hope not. Facing this, I hope anyone wanting to view the civilian shooter as a "bad guy" who was saving a human life: This is a reason for us being armed. Here is one of my departments reasons to be able to shoot: "Dispose of a seriously injured or dangerous animals when no other disposition is practical."

Bobby would have stood there and watched the dogs maul the boy to death. Just like he admitted he would watch 3 children brutally murdered and do nothing.

This is one of those tough ones to call.

The man clearly intended to save the boy, but he also is responsible for what he shot... which was the boy.

The question one must ask is, does the good Samaritan laws apply? Would this man be covered under those laws?

As a user of any fire arm, you are expected to be trained in the use of that fire arm. As a person who is trained in the use of CPR, if you preform it incorrectly, you are not protected by the good Samaritan law as you were negligent.

So the question which ought to be brought up is which responsibility is more important. allowing people to protect others and accepting their negligence or forgiving negligence in lue of protecting the public.

D.C. police are investigating whether a man will face criminal charges for shooting a pit bull that was attacking a child in his neighborhood. The incident unfolded Sunday afternoon, after three pit bulls attacked an 11-year-old boy as he rode his bicycle through the Brightwood neighborhood of Northwest, according to a police report.

When the man, a neighbor, saw the boy being mauled by the dogs, he went inside his home and got a gun. The man killed one of the dogs. The gunfire attracted the attention of a police officer in the area near Eighth and Sheridan streets, where the attack occurred. The officer responded and shot the other two pit bulls as they continued to attack the boy.

The police report, which did not identify any of the people involved, said the boy suffered severe lacerations. The Washington Post, which first reported the details of the shooting, quoted the boy’s uncle as saying the boy was also shot in the foot.

Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said Wednesday that the entire case, including whether the man legally owned the gun he used to kill the dog, is under investigation.
