Re: Should pit bulls be banned?


I don't understand why anybody would want to eliminate a breed of dog.

you cannot stereotype dog breeds just like your cannot stereotype people.

Granted some bulldogs are dominate aggressors, but not all.

I had a mix lab i think she was half bulldog due to the shape of her face. everybody was afraid of her in our neighborhood, small children would cry when they saw her. I always felt bad about that. The truth was she was all bark and no bite she constantly showered by grand-babies with pure love.

Now my poodle, was a mini monster.

his personality changed once he reached the age of 3, he went from loving everybody to territorial and probably dominance aggression. He would attack dogs 4 times his size, Dogs would pick him up by his neck and shake him like a rag doll. It was horrible to watch. It's like he didn't realize how small and defenseless he was. I soon realized that this was his mature personality and i had to find him another home since i had grandchildren who visited.

You are right of course Mary, but the only certain way of preventing dogs from biting humans is to kill all dogs.

You can make them safer at least outdoors, muzzle them.

Which reminds me, it isn't just death they can chew a person up and cause great injury. We had an elderly neighbor taking a walk through our area, an 11 y.o. girl walking a pit bull lost control(surprise) and the dog made a mess out the old lady.

I haven't researched it, but I know that dog fighting is illegal in the U.S. -- I read that these dogs had been trained for fighting.

OK, we are going to eliminate pitbulls. Is this going to be accomplished on a Federal nationwide level? Or is it going to be accomplished via a series of state or local laws. That will be totally impossible to coordinate. W hat are the logistics required to eliminate and entire breed of dog. How do we differentiate between pits and other breeds? In the real world, where we have millions of mixed breed dogs, whar percentage of pitbull blood constitutes a dog to be eliminated? How do we identify and differentiate between the various levels of pit mixes? And on and on, and on. Possibly a. Well intended, proposal that is totally impossible to manage. In simplistic terms — it just ain’t gonna happen.



It probably won't happen but if it did we wouldn't have to be overly concerned about mixed breeds. If pure bred pit bulls were banned the mixed breeds would also become scarce.

This illustrates the problem. Why should any civilized society allow dogs like this which are close to being the equivalent of a dangerous wild animal to be out and about where they may at any time attack someone?

As I said, the cost benefit ratio doesn't justify doing so.

I have no clue as I don't why you think heroin should be available to those on demand.

As I've explained, the main reason why is probably because making heroin legally available makes its use much more cheap and safe for the user. They'll be less likely to commit a crime to get the money to buy it and they'll be less likely to overdose on it because they will know what dose they are taking. And they will also know that it wasn't mixed with fentanyl.

But there's also another reason which should be obvious. Heroin users are doing something which they have a right to do just like sky divers have the right to jump out of air planes. It doesn't follow that because it is dangerous they don't have a right to do it.

Walking around with a pit bull dog which at any time may leap at someone's throat and try to kill them is not at all in the same category with someone deciding to risk their own life for the high they get from heroin. Of course I'm not surprised that of the two things this society bans the wrong one.
