If I were King of the World, Norris Cole would be dragged out back and shot too.
"Found out that it was him that shot my dog after finding the gun on him," Ortiz said.
Investigators say it was a .22 caliber pistol.
Cole had apparently placed the border collie-lab mix in trash bags and had already carried him out to his truck when the story unfolded.
"I was very upset," Ortiz said. "I really miss him a lot. It's not the same without him."
After questioning, deputies say Cole said that he was tired of the dog constantly barking.
Just on the other side of Ortiz's fence is the Plantation House, an upscale home rented out year round to host private weddings.
It's also the home of Cole, who valued peace and quiet for his family's business.
Of course, the ATF is once again trying to cause trouble.
Meanwhile, ATF investigators said Cole had some sort of silencer or flash suppressor on the gun, which could be illegalUh, either he did or he didn't and its either legal or not. A Flash Suppresor is legal, as is a silencer (if he's paid the tax on it). Either way, its not too difficult to tell what was on it. Shouldn't the ATF have at least done the 10 seconds of due dilligence it would take to figure out what was on the gun before making dumb statements?? Oh, thats right, if it wasn't for idiotic statements, they would probably be out of a job.
