Why I carry a handgun for protection, Vol. 53

So that if ourselves and our German shepherd suddenly get attacked in a suburban park by three vicious off-leash pit bulls we will be able to successfully fight off the attacking canines, just like Kirkland, Washington resident Tim Lewis did last Saturday: 

"During the unprovoked attack, the man pulled out his concealed weapon and opened fire, hitting one of the pit bulls and scaring off the others."

Very bad things can happen to innocent people at any time, even in the local park on a lazy Saturday afternoon.  Please acquire the means, training and mindset to defend yourself accordingly.

"Charles McLennan was nearby and watched in horror as pit bulls attacked.

'If he didn't have that gun, he would probably be dead,' McLennan said of Lewis."

By the way, Mr. Lewis happens to be a youngish black male, which certainly helps to counter the blatantly racist labeling of law-abiding gun carriers by some anti-gun zealots as "just a bunch of soft, [middle-aged] white guys".  (Former Dakota County, Minnesota Sheriff Don Gudmundson is the one who came up with that particular gem.)

Love yet another story with a happy if only he'd hit all three pit bulls to help them "assume park temperature."

But according to the Sheriff Bull Connor ("oops," Gudmondson), obviously Lewis didn't need a gun, because he is a young black male who presumably was in shape.
