Police confiscated a man’s licensed pistol and shotgun after he was forced to defend himself against an attack from a pit bull.

The 25-year-old man from Massachusetts said he was attacked by his recently fostered pit bull while he, his girlfriend and the dog were lying in bed, according to The Boston Globe.

Man - Dog - Arm - Man - Dog

The man tried to move the dog, but it retaliated by biting him on the left arm. The man tried to release the dog’s grip, but it refused.

In order to end the attack, the man reached for his 9mm handgun and shot the dog.

Shot - Attack - Dog - Police - Statement

“The single shot stopped the attack and the dog died shortly afterward,” police said in a statement.

The man ended up in the hospital with what was described as “serious” injuries to his arms. Had the man not been armed, the dog could have done more damage and seriously harmed his girlfriend, who was also present.

Dog - Human - Life

It’s sad that the dog died, but a human’s life could have been lost instead.

“The man is fully licensed to have firearms in Massachusetts,” the police said.

Firearms - Girlfriend - Attack - Man - Guns

Despite legally owning his firearms and saving his girlfriend from a potential attack, the man’s guns were taken by police.

Should the government give the man his guns back?
