5 Reasons a Pit Bull is Better than a Gun
When it comes to home defense, a gun only works when you're holding it and its pointed in the right direction. That's awfully specific. A pit bull on the other hand, can protect a home with a couple barks, and unlike a gun they're always "on". So what is a pit bull?
"Pit bull" is the name applied to a large collection of fighting dog breeds that have a certain appearance. They have short hair, muscular chests and a characteristic double-hump of bulging jaw muscles on top of their heads.
Pit bulls are widely misunderstood, and one must understand the dog's history to understand the dog. Originally bred for fighting, these dogs retain a puzzling tolerance for pain, a joyful, unrestrained relentlessness, and extreme protectiveness of their families. They are agile, fearless, and very curiously, have bulletproof heads. This takes us to our first item.
1. Your Gun Won't Take a Bullet for You.
There's four stories, and there are many more. This phenomenon is not anecdotal, or miraculous, it is evidently quite common. People shoot pit bulls in the head, figuring that will be enough to put the dog down. But the pit bull keeps on coming. While a bullet to the head is discouraging to most, a pit bull sees it as a challenge.
2. You Can "Open Carry" your Pit Bull Without Issues
Could you walk around the neighborhood strapped up with AK-47's? Would the police wish to question you? No problem with a pit bull. Now everybody knows you've got one at the house, and if your sleazy neighbor was casing your apartment, he just stopped. This takes us to our next point.
3. Your Pit Bull Can't be Used Against You
People say you're more likely to have your guns used against you than you are to use one against an attacker. Pit bulls aren't like this. Unlike a baseball bat, gun or knife, the pit bull knows the difference between his good guys and the bad guys.
4. Your Gun isn't Alert 24/7 with Incredible Hearing
One creaking floorboard, and the pit bull is on high alert. Food? Intruders? Intruders carrying food? The pit bull has to know. This is where a pit bull and a gun work together. The dog gives you the drop, and you can work together to do the rest.
5. Guns can't give you snuggles.
They just can't. They don't stick their head out the window on car trips either. Your children won't fondly remember the 9mm pistol you had while they were growing up.
