It sounds like this man, who shot one of three pit bulls that were attacking a defenseless young boy, saved this boy’s life. But because he fired his handgun on a Washington DC city street which violates their city gun laws, he could face up to a year in prison:
BUSINESS INSIDER – A Washington D.C. man who fatally shot a trio of pit bulls as they attacked a young boy could face charges for violating the District’s gun laws.
An unnamed 11-year-old boy was riding his new bike in Washington D.C. on Sunday when he collided with a pack of unleashed and unattended pit bulls that began attacking him, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
An unidentified neighbor saw the mauling and used his handgun to shoot one of the dogs. A D.C. police officer who heard the gun shots fatally shot the other two dogs.
Since the neighbor technically fired his gun on a D.C. street, and not on his personal property, he could face up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine, DCist reported Wednesday.
If they charge this man with a crime, this will once again prove how stupid these gun laws are in that they don’t stop crime but they do punish innocent Americans.
