This chart from the article @Karen mentioned is tremendous:

There are 50 US states. 4/10 of these incidents occurred in Florida. *facepalm*
There's a running gag here in the US about how embarrassed we are of Florida: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida_Man

"Florida Man fatally shot by dog"

Actually, that's apparently just the tip of the iceberg:

Verdict: true, and then some.

Happened in Russia (I think) a couple weeks ago too. A hunter kept his gun on his knees while searching for something and his dog jumped on him to play. It shot him through the guts and he died :(

i doubt this, seeing of how you have to push the trigger to shoot a gun, which a dog can't actually do with out being trained properly, and it's unlikely that some one has a gun, and it's even more unlikely for some on e to have a loaded gun, and highly unlikely that some one were to train a dog to shoot a gun. so it'd be EXTREMELY unlikely for some one to have a loaded gun, and a trained dog that can shoot a gun. i could go on but :P
