Only Pitbull’s with 3 or less legs should be legal for the lowly citizen. Only the military or government officials can have a pit bull with 4 legs.

Yes, those big dogs have the equivalent of a high capacity magazine as well ~ LARGE BROWN UNITS ~ up to 100 an hour on a good day ~ suitable for decorating any lawn in America, automatic reloading capacity ~

The dog wasn’t that big, the sea lion was tiny.

Maybe because the gun store rescinded his recent rifle purchase?

Otherwise, the sea lion was going to get the ‘full load high power magazine’.

I think we have plenty of dog control laws already.

But it is clear that we need more "Self Righteous Liberal Idiot" control laws.

How is the story not that the dog attacked a sea lion?

Think if this was GWB the story would be that he performed some heroic act?

Just wondering, but who would not pull their dog off?

Don’t you mean mark kelley-giffords? So, not only is he a proponent of more intrusive restrictions on law abiding citizens, he’s now also an animal activist who doesn’t know how to train a dog? Nice. What a disgrace to the US Navy and the asstronaut corps. And to dog owners as well. Is the daughter not in control of the dog? Was it a dog beach? Leashes not required? Of course it was kalifornia, where even dogs probably have abortion “rights” and canine immigration status or some other “only in kali” kind of BS. The dog was just doin’ what dogs do. Besides, toss that pup(sea lion not dog[except in king husseins case]) on the grill along side the mountain lion ribs and we got us a BBQ goin’ on.

According to whom is this the “daughter’s dog”? He has two, both teenagers. Is this one of those, “okay... okay... I’ll buy you a dog, but you have to PROMISE me you’ll do all the care, walking and feeding”? Since when is the daughter of a family’s choice for a breed a pit-bull?

Clearly, we now live in a society with two sets of rules. Even the current gun control hysteria doesn't apply to them - only to us, who are so dangerous and unpredictable and who don't even care about the poor and minorities like they do that we deserve regular police beatings just to reduce the risk that we might someday try to hurt one of the lightworkers. /s

Did Kelly promise the dog breeder that, upon taking possession of said dog, he was going to turn it over to the police as well (as an assault dog)?

“Police said the Kelly family did nothing wrong and no one will face any charges”

If I go there next week, and my dog kills a child, can I claim I did ‘nothing wrong’.

I know a woman who went to prison because her dog killed a boy at the bus stop (and she should have, since she couldn’t control her dog).

But Kelly did nothing wrong? The animal was protected by the marine protection act...but ‘accidents are ok’? What if my boat accidentally kills a whale...whoops, an accident?

Those of us in the non-governing class would have faced a fine.

Funny, the word "arrested" did not appear in the article.

A woman merely rode a manatee and got arrested - that manatee lived.
Oh, but she's not a Democrat politician, too bad.

I’m sorry but everything about this video is hilarious, including the decision to blur the part where the dog is biting the sea lion.

Nor does the original report have an angle protecting Kelly, which the national media put there.

It is a “pet” peeve of mine people nowadays think it’s all fun and games with their dogs. A dog should be trained to ignore other prople and animals. Instead everyone thinks their pets should immediately make friends with every stranger they encounter.

Nailed it.

The bias can be in what they decide to cover, what they decide not to cover, or in how they phrase the coverage that they eventually provide. Whether consciously or unconsciously, the media presents news which assigns the role of Good Guy to Democrats and the role of Bad Guy to Republicans.

Your dog attacked and killed a sea lion? Well, we will still assign you the role of Good Guy. Nothing to see here, please move along.

OMG! It was one of those horrible bull dogs. Did mark kelley-giffords have a back ground check done before the dog was released to him/his daughter? Where was the waiting period? Why hasn’t the kali DNR charged him/his daughter in the death of (I think) a “protected” species? Pretty sure that if an animal that you are supposed to be in control of kills a “threatened/protected/endangered” species, you are responsible and liable. Unless you’re a “star”. You or me, fined, possible jail, dog impounded.

“A retired astronaut and a celebrity elected official’s husband are involved and police quickly determine that they did nothing wrong. I wonder how that would have worked out for Joe Citizen?”

Most states have “harassment of wildlife” laws, and sea lions are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. A guy was recently fined a large amount for merely riding a protected whale.

Joe citizen would most likely be facing a minimum of a large fine. “Equal Protection” doesn’t equal protection.

No charges. Even though the giffords could not control their dog. I say ban pits for any government or former government employee. They just claim it’s not my fault.

Yup. Dog parks where a whole lot of butt sniffin’ goes on always looked to me like a place just waiting for an accident. I guess the radical left wing extremist demokkkrat scumbags can’t/don’t/won’t understand the alpha/beta facts of life. The former naval officer/astronaut mark kelley-giffords and his daughter should be banned from owning dogs. If that dog (which appears aggresive) were to sense weakness (say Gabby) and attacked, what would mark kelly-giffords do then? Still think they should be charged for the offense as someone else said about the “Marine Animal Protection Act”. (A lot of Marines I’ve known are animals. God bless ‘em. Semper Fi(do). LOL!)

If my leashed, 70+ pound dog got away from me, “ran off” and did anything nefarious at all, I would be facing a fine-big enough to affect a months’ worth of bills-and I’m talking about hiking trails in the woods, not a public beach. If you can’t control the dog on the leash, don’t walk the damn dog outside your property...
