Where are all the good dogs with guns?

Micah Heckford, a friend of Branch, told Brian Broom of the Clarion Ledger on Tuesday that a dog jumped onto the truck bed that Branch was sitting on and accidentally stepped on a shotgun's safety and trigger.
We talk a lot about homicides and suicides with guns. Less about misadventures. I'm having a hard time finding statistics on those. These people did an analysis of 300 of them:

Apparently, one of those was also caused by...a dog. So this wasn't the first time.

I don't own any guns, but it seems weird to me that a dog could accidently deactivate the safety and activate the trigger at the same time. I'm thinking it's possible that the safety wasn't actually on.

Get a canine gun for every ten bag of dog food purchsed. Plus shipping and handling. Specify dog size.

Freak accident from the sounds of it. Glad he made it through despite losing the leg.

If we make it illegal for dogs to have guns, only bad dogs will have guns.
