Mark Kelly and Gabrielle Giffords are the public faces of a Texas lawyer’s PAC named Americans for Responsible Solutions. Americans for Responsible Solutions calls for bans on assault rifles and high capacity magazines.
Unfortunately Mark Kelly is proving to be a flawed public face for gun control. Not only was he caught buying an AR-15 assault rifle, but he seems to have a problem with his own assault bulldog.
A disturbing video has surfaced on YouTube of a dog locking its jaws on a beached baby sea lion as California beachgoers frantically try to free the trapped mammal.
In the YouTube video, three women attempt to pull a small, limp sea lion from the mouth of a dog who refuses to let go. Cries of “No!” No!” are heard as the dog shakes the beached sea lion in his mouth. Offscreen, someone yells, “Take him out there and drown the dog. He’ll let go,” to which one of the women yells back, “No, what the f—?”
After a couple of minutes of struggling, Mark Kelly appears in the shot, according to the man who recorded the incident.
A pool of blood from the sea lion is left on the shoreline as Kelly and the dog walk off. The sea lion, which isn’t moving by that point, later died, according to The Los Angeles Times. It was removed from the area where it had beached itself, which may have been an indication that it was sick before the brutal encounter.
Now I believe that everyone has the right to own dogs. But does anyone really need an Assault Bulldog? Bulldogs are bred and designed to kill. Their jaw has no peaceful purpose except to grip its prey.
The bulldog originated as a bull-baiter. Bulldogs kill people in this country every year. There is no reason why any law- abiding person should own a bulldog and it’s time for Mark Kelly to do the responsible thing.
