Dave Saunders

Dave Saunders is obsessed with winning respect from those around him. He equates owning a gun with masculinity and power but is not mature enough to handle the gun and shoots the mule as a result.

Mrs. Saunders

Mrs. Saunders is torn between babying her son and setting limits, ultimately allowing him to buy a gun. She forces Dave to admit that he shot the mule but quickly recuses, or removes herself from, her own responsibility in the matter.
