Banning Pitbulls?

Where I live they(uneducated politicians who havn't done any research but want to look busy) are trying to ban Pitbulls. They man heading this the Attorney General states their inherently dangerous animals yet if you look at statistics they always show otherwise, aswell many more aggressive dogs always show up in the stats. Im writing a speech about this for a school assignment and just want to know what you guys think. Not only is banning them an uniformed decision enforcing the law is going to be a nightmare, I could post mountains of statisitcs but itd take too long. So ill just post this flash that sums things up pretty well.

A few stats:

In a recent study of dog breeds by the American Temperament Testing Society pit bulls achieved a passing rate of 83.9%. That's better than beagles and golden retrievers

In a study that ranked dog breeds from one to one hundred, in order of how likely they were to bite, the 'pit bull' ranked 4th last.

One city banned 'pit bulls' after 18 "pit-bull" bites reported the previous year. During that same period, there were 85 bites attributed to German Shepherds

*A Pit-bull isnt even an official breed but just a term to loosely describe several breeds, have fun banning something that doesn't exist

Sounds identical to the Assault Weapon ban. Politicians get bored and need something to do, so they think up somethign that appears dangerous on the outside, and ban it.

i dont know much about dogs, but pitbulls arent the only dangerous dogs

a dog will be good if its owner is good. If its owner teaches it to attack people, then it will attack people.

i agree with you, but isnt a valid point that people are scared of the severity of an attack, not the frequency?

yeah, you in ontario? they're banning em' here.

i think its mostly how bad pit bull attacks are compared to others.. its seems most other dogs snap once or twice, but most pit bull attacks ive heard of are longer and more brutal..

i dont think they should be banned, just regulations put into effect

I think that people should learn how to train their dog not to maul people.

My brother has a pit-bull, and it's one of the nicest dogs ever.

Pit bulls can be awesome dogs if you aren't an IDIOT! Sorry if this sounds racist, but I've seen it all too many times:

A lot of mexicans want a tough dog, so they get a pitbull, and just chain it up. They also pay no attention to it because they're lazy, then the dog eventually escapes the chain, and attacks an innocent person.

I think they should be banned because the majority of the people who have them cannot handle a dog like that. They aren't a frickin' cocker spaniel, they're dangerous.

The best idea is to create a license that you must get to own a pitbull.

License is actually a good idea.

Pit bull's should be banned they kill hundreds of babys and attack even more people each year, and they should be banned.


Edit- If you have to teach a dog to be good and not to attack people and kill them then you shouldn't be able to get your hands on a dog like this. Dogs are supposed to be man's best friend not some type of creature you have to train not to kill/attack.

i was thinking the same idea of a licesnse as same with assault weapons they can be highly dangereous if used in the wrong way but can also be a treat to deal with. alot of people love pittys and just like the dogs in general.

remember pitbullforum when there was that aim messup....yea looked over there forum and they were a great group of people.

ps paintballer74...your sig makes you a newb.

You don't have to train them not to kill people. If you just treat them right they'll be a great dog.

Too many people buy pitbulls to fight. If these dogs get loose and small children provoke them, they will attack you.

Somehow i doubt it. Hundreds of babys? Link to source or don't talk at all.

I group pitbulls with firearms. Firearms CAN be VERY dangerous when handled improperly, or when given to someone with formal training and intent to kill. Same thing with pitbulls in my opinion. Some people buy them to train them to be fighters, and to attack people. Some people buy them as a family dog. Pitbulls are a dangerous fighting type of dog, when they flip out, they FLIP OUT. Pitbulls are vicious as hell when they get into it.

Firearms are bad too, when misused. I agree with the license idea. You need a license to own an INHERENTLY dangerous firearm, why not have to have a license to own an INHERENTLY dangerous pitbull? Both have the resources to kill someone, so it needs to be regulated.

not true. u dont have to train it to be anything. some ppl teach it to be mean so its hard to train it nice again. but if your nice to it and train it good in the first place then u dont have to train it again

Shut up. You don't know him, so you have no way to say whether or not he has a life or not, it is NOT hard to get 1500 posts (He has a lot more than that). You are a noob. Your sig is retarded, many if not most pro teams use ramping boards, I assume that with your ****ty imp and cocker you will be able to single handedly take all of them all because after all, people with ramping boards are just noobs right? A ramping board won't make you good, it'll enhance your playing but if a noob such as yourself used a ramping board, you would still suck.
And to stay on topic: Any dog can be trained to be vicious, so it's not the dog's fault, it's the owners. Because it isn't the dogs fault I don't think they should be illegalized.
