i agree. everybody seems to have this notion that ALL pitbulls are mean & vicious. it really all depends on how they were trained. & even if my dog is only HALF pitbull, that still doesnt excuse him from having pitbull behavior. & when he does start to show that side of him we all put an end to it right quick. therefore, he is a gentle animal. there will be no malling of any kind of his part. hell more than likley lick you to death than tear your face off. & im not just being biased because i have a half pitbull. my neighboors have two of his siblings & they are also very friendly.

^It is their bloodline to be vicious. They are historically fighting dogs. But totally, it is fully on the owners shoulders as to how a pitbull turns out to be.

They eat children. Over here a pitbull attacked a child! But luckily a wee terrior came to the rescue and bit at the pitbulls legs so the kid could escape! Weeee...

we already have a ban here, anyone who currently owns one has to get it registered and take out a $1,000,000 liability insurance policy, they cannot be bred, they cannot be walked in public without being muzzled. I do not think this is unreasonable

What's next, a ban on children because a small percentage of them bite people?

@ Mereblood

Not exactly, pit bulls actually have mauled and killed many children. I know of a case in Houston a few years back where a pit bull ate the stomach out of a child in front of its mother. Even so your remark does not even come close to making a realistic comparison between the 2.

In general I somewhat agree with this law. I think their should be an appeals process, but realistically these dogs are not meant for household pets. I am sure that you can raise a perfectly good pit bull, just like you COULD raise a perfectly good lion.... only thing is sometimes they freak. I know that we as Americans love the idea that we can pick whatever flavor we want, but seriously people have died because you want a 'cute pit bull'; instead pick some other kind of dog to fill the void in your life ;) (i really love animals dont get the wrong idea)

The pick up truck didnt maul and kill children, the person behind the wheel did.

You absolutely can put a 'blanket ban' if it is something unnecessarily infringing on someone else's rights. Thats the reason its a problem. Kinda like how the FDA banned jalapeños after less than .01% of the US population got salmonella... it was technically once in a blue moon, but it was something that was preventable and not a necessity. Thats how the legislation process works, its not like people are just going around banning things to piss people off. If it wasn't a problem that needed to be addressed people wouldn't go through the litigation.

I don't know where you live, but I don't know to many old people walking on the street scared that youngsters are gonna mug them. You live in Compton or something?

I say the answer isn't to ban pit bulls but to require a breeder's license for them if anything.
