Do weapons go off by themselves?Can I take it then, that if my dog is not trained to bite, but chews the crap out of someone being physically aggressive with me, the dog isn't a weapon because of the lack of training?
You might have a loose cannon Don.
I think a weapon is something that is used with the handler's intention. I choose to employ a gun, knife or dog. So if your dog isn't bite trained can you reliably direct the "force" of your dog upon something else? I don't think so.
