In the pro-gun and anti-gun debate, there are cliche sayings such as "Guns don't kill, people do." And "There is no reason to have a pistol because its only purpose is for shooting people."
Well, apparently that ain't so. See this article about a boy who used a pistol to shoot a very large animal.
Now, if I were to ask a certain person I know about this situation, he would say what a shame it was to kill an animal who managed to grow that big.
I'm glad I didn't see it in the forest. 5 inch tusks?!?
