Revoke Mark Vasseur's gun license for killing a puppy!

The Lakeville, Massachusetts resident shot at two pet dogs, killing a neighbor's golden retriever puppy, Walle. 

According to media reports, Walle and his pal Zeke (a german shepherd puppy) got out and went exploring the neighobrhood and the surrounding woods. Their owners, Krissy Dashner and Pat Bates searched for the pair for an hour and then heard five gunshots.

Later, they learned from the police that Walle had been shot and killed.

Media tracked down the neighbor, who claimed Walle had killed his chickens, and that he doesn't regret his actons.

“I can’t imagine why you would ever shoot Walle or any dog. Just call animal control,” Dashner said.

Mark has many posts on his Facebook proclaiming he is a "shoot first ask questions later" gun owner. He was pissed about the dogs in his yard and rather than call animal control, he went and grabbed his gun. He clearly had better options to deal with this issue.

In the light of recent events it seems clear that Mark is not making good and safe decisions and should no longer be able to own a firearm.

His actions are a red flag and his next action may be against another human. There is no telling what will set this man off, removing his weapons is in the best interest of Massachusetts as he has displayed a clear and present danger. Please see this article for more information.
