Last month, a man from Iowa was shot by his own dog.
Richard Remme told The Messenger about how he became the victim of a canine crime.
“I was lying on the couch, and we were horsing around, me and the dog. And I was tossing him off my lap, and he was jumping back on my lap,” Remme said. “Apparently he bumped the safety one time, and when he bounded back over, one of his toes went right down into the trigger guard. My dog shot me!”
He added: “I’m looking around to see where it went to, and I realized it went in my leg. That’s when I called 911.”
Now, seems like The Late Show with Stephen Colbert couldn’t resist a chance to skewer the National Rifle Association with a parody of the story featuring a lookalike Dana Loesch that, of course, promotes the right for canines to bear arms too.
“The liberal media wants you to believe guns are dangerous, just because you can be shot by a dog,” the fake Loesch says, mocking the real Loesch’s gunsplaining. “They want you to think it’s ridiculous to give a dog access to an automatic rifle. But here’s the thing—unless I’ve misread it, the second amendment guarantees the right for bears to have arms. And what’s a bear but a large dog?”
