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

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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.
