Dog shoots owner – do we need another rule of gun safety?

Again- it’s hard to believe, but it actually happened. A bird hunter’s dog shot its owner when the dog stepped on a gun laying across the inside of a rowboat.

Here’s the story on U.S. News.

This begs the question, do we need to add a fourth rule for gun safety?

  1. Always assume a firearm is loaded
  2. Keep your finger off the trigger until you’re fixed on the target and ready to shoot
  3. Never point the gun in an unsafe direction
  4. *new* – Don’t let your dog handle your gun

What do you all think? 🙂
