As an American you have the right to own firearms. But that doesn’t mean you should. A Texas mom was arrested after attempting to shoot a loose dog in her neighborhood — because she accidentally shot her five-year-old son instead. Angelina Mia Vargas was on a bike ride around her Houston neighborhood with her family when the incident occurred. During the family’s bike ride, a boxer puppy escaped his house and ran towards the Vargas family. As the owner of the dog tried to bring him back inside, Vargas fired three shots at the loose dog with a small caliber pistol. While one shot grazed the leg of the dog, one ricocheted and hit Vargas’s son in the abdomen. The child was taken to the hospital and is currently in stable condition. His injuries were not believed to be life threatening. Vargas was arrested.
