WHY BAN THE DOG WHEN IT IS THE STUPID PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WHO GIVE THEM THE REPUTATION THAT THEY HAVE. IF ANYTHING, PEOPLE SHOULD REQUIRE A BACKGROUND CHECK TO GET A PIT BULL, GOOD PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE PREVENTED FROM OWNING SUCH A LOYAL AND LOVING ANIMAL. BUT, THE POLITIONS WILL DO WHAT THEY WANT TO EITHER WAY..

Anyone that believes it's the way the dog is trained is stupid.

Anyone that believes it is the dog and not the owner is very ignorant. That is very racist on their part. People who believe this view are just judging their opinion on what the media tells you. Have you even met a pit bull before? Before you judge a breed of dog maybe you should educate yourself!!!

Spoken from a person who probably has never owned and loved the most loyal pets in the world. My Yorkie is more vicious than my Pitt. When any dog is protecting himself or the owner they will resort to their natural instinct, fighting. When the owner is cruel or thinks it funny, they will train ANY dog to be just like him. Why only take it out on the bigger dog? Why not tell me I can't have a dog at all? Then we can all live in a place where the Government controls everything. The man who owns the fighting rings should be punished not the dogs, and the innocent NORMAL owners.

I must agree that if only all of you "racist" pit haters had ever truly met one, you would soon change your tune. The media has poisoned you into thinking that every big dog who has bitten someone was a pit bull. Poodles and chahuahuas are on the top 10 biters list, NOT PIT BULLS!! It IS the dog fighting ring's owner who should be banned! They should be jailed and the dog placed with a loving family. Those of us who have had our dogs for 5, 7 or even 10 years should NOT have our family torn apart and be punished for the mean hearted idiots who choose to do unthinkable things with animals...ANY animals, especially the beloved pit.

Wow, pit bull is no longer a breed, but is now a race? Where were you inbred?

On the subject of Pit Bulls or any dog for that matter that bites. I say; Require the dog to be marked and pull it teeth out! Failure to do so, put the dog down.

I've owned pitbulls, mastiffs, rotweillers, german shepherds and english bulldogs. I have seen how messed up they get with a bad owner. I've seen abused animals and abandoned animals and even have taken in a few. Treated right and trained right, they are great dogs. Dogs are like children in that if you abused them or abandon them, they act the same way. Dogs are scared. Ban the deed and not the breed. My dear Joseph, you are the only idiot I see in this forum.

Any Fighting dogs can't be placed in homes with other families that have other pets because it takes years of work to un-teach what has been taught to them and most of them are very aggressive when they see another animal. The bans are because of the fighting inside the city limits. The cities are trying to protect the publics pets from being solen and used as bait and mauled to death and dumped back into their yards torn to pieces, it is a daily ordeal, just ask your local shelter why it's not reported.The good dogs are staying but the bad ones will be found and taken care of. It is the owners fault that their dog is aggressive because that behavior should be corrected when it happens and not rewarded. You have to know what you are doing to own a pitbull because they have been inbred so much that their brains have a malfunction and they can just click and you have no control over it no matter how you raise your pet.Mainly in males around 2years old. And for those of you who keep saying that pitbulls are a breed, you have no idea what you are talking about, they are not a breed but they are a mix, you know Heinz 57.

We have 3 pits and they are not mean at all my 4 year old plays and loves these dogs. They are protective but arent all dogs? And yes i believe it is in the way they are trained, why should the people that have pits and take care of them have to spend alot of money to keep our dogs or have them taken away because of the dumbasses that want to fight these dogs?

Wow!! Most of the people who have posted something on this subject seem to be on the correct path, but to the few who so blindly choose to openly and prejudicely admonish bully breeds as a whole are not individuals I would even want around my children. It seems as if society has a chokehold on so many peoples' minds. I, personally, own a one-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier and have since she was ten weeks old. Her parents are AKC champions and you can date her ancestors as far back as thirty years ago, maybe even farther. She has never shown any signs of aggression and adores people, especially children. She is a favorite at our veterinarian's office and is even boarded there if I have to go TDY. The only real problem she has is that she loves other dogs and cats so much that she may very well irritated them when she licks them to death. Even if I did not have the priviledge of owning a bully, I would not dare excommunicate a breed of dog from society. Aggressive dogs should be dealt with on a case by case basis, and I understand that it seems easier to outlaw them as a whole. Why not have a law stating that said dogs only be purchased by "adults" over the age of 21 from a registered breeder. It is only a suggestion to get everyones' minds flowing in a more positive direction. Let us not forget that Hitler called Jewish people inferior and undeserving of life. No, bullies are not people but the same theory applies.

To whom this may Concern, My Pit Bruiser was my best friend. I lost him in a house fire. If it had not been for him I might have lost my 10 year old doughter. She had said that he never left her side the whole time she was looking for a way out. The window in my bath room was to tall for her to get out so she had steped on his back to and got the window. If it had not been for my loving and caring pitbull, I could have lost my child. SO for all those who think Pits are bad, need to re-think. It just might be the owener and not the animale.

I find it most appalling that man in all his wisdom wants to ban a particular species of dog from our communties yet will allow every crack head, drug dealer, pedophile, hooker, and other whack job on planet to live in our neighborhoods. Get rid of the above described freaks before deciding to get rid of mans truly best friend.

I think some people should be banned from PROCREATING when they don't support their children. You should have a license to breed just as you should have a license to have children.

What I find appalling is someone who comes off as a law abiding, tax paying citizen dare to judge others as freaks when they should look in the mirror. Hypocrisy at its best! Go back to stealing identities, cars and being the best con-man you can be and stop trying to sound like a law-abiding, tax paying citizen.

Lol you just have to love the comments from pedophiles, homosexuals, and others of Kris K's ilk. One has to have a pretty pathetic life to spew about others being somehow less when the spewing idiot is simply a no body period but a waste of life.

Because they're FREAKIN UGLY DOGS!!! That's why. You all can go on about all the stories of loveability , loyalty , canine "Heroism" , etc - but the truth is, if you don't belong to any sanctioned organizations (corner dogfights don't count), and pay quarterly / yearly dues to some kind of chapter , then you just got a Pit to be like everyone else who is propogating that "Wanna be a badass" ethos. Your dog won't get any trophy , but your dog is YOUR trophy,...how sad for the dog.

My name is Kris S or at least thats what Im calling myself but in reality my name is the ALLEGED EX something of the person named Todd Meuir that I continue to post things in his name that I know are fraudulent as well as I continue to stalk him and his wife because I am just that kind of skank loser female that has nothing better to do than spread my legs for every male that gives me my favorite mating call(sound of a zipper going down)and of course a Corona. I am just a pathetic loser excuse of a female that is hating life, hating myself, and really hating that my lap band surgery failed because I still look like something you advertise on and float over the super bowl. Im a two time loser in the marriage dept and cannot accept that Im only wanted by men that have been turned down by every other female and Im last one in bar at 3am.
