Some members of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia have written that they’d meet a cop killing their dog with lethal force. I love my schnauzers, but I wouldn’t go there. Not when my life is at stake. So, Ralph, what about cats? Check this from Ontario’s thespec.com:
It all started when two people dropped by at a house a few doors down from Sosnoski’s. When the door was opened, two dogs bolted to his property.
“He (Sosnoski) exited the residence and came out with a long-barrelled rifle,” deputy Crown attorney Karey Katzsch told court. “He yelled at the group to get their dogs off his property or he would shoot them.”
Then he went back inside.
“Moments later, Mr. Sosnoski exited his residence again, this time with a white baseball bat and yelled at the group that he was going to beat them with the baseball bat,” Katzsch said.
Sosnoski pleaded guilty to possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace, and careless storage of a firearm.
Mr. Sosnoski’s lawyer said “alcohol consumption clouded his judgment that day.” Maybe. Or maybe he just really loved his cats.
In any case, no. It’s not worth it. IMHO. Your thoughts?
