Herd dogs and labs have a larger percentage in aggressive behavior and/or attacks then pits, in fact pits are only 18%. As a pit lover and owner, It is disgusting to me that people are so ignorant as to only acknowledge the media about pit bulls and not the lab that dismembered a newborn baby out of jealousy. There is a reason behind every pit attack and most lie within the owner!! So if we ban pits, lets ban herd dogs, and labs., and black people because they have a reputation for crime. Sorry but they're no different!!!! and i do not care who disagrees.

GOD MADE ALL OUR ANIMALS INCLUDING PIT BULLS SO WHY DON'T YOU GO TO THE LIBRARY AND READ UP ON THEM ????
Its because the dog got dog alzheimer's disease. Which is very common in old dogs, so instead of sounding like an idiot why dont you educate yourself first before you speak.

These are Canine Crocs - you have no clue when they will suddenly snap and maul you to death.

All this crap talk about, dogs only attack when they have bad owners - LIE. Even the most loving owners with the best intentions and training methods have had Molosser type dogs suddenly turn and snap on them, or get out and kill neighbor kids or other dogs.
These dogs have a deep seeded instinct to destroy. THAT IS WHAT THEY WERE BRED FOR. To bait Bulls and Bears and fight to the death with other dogs or smaller game. They love to fight, gets their endorphines up. They dont ever stop.

Yes, Other breeds bite, but not with the savage capability of Pits/Molosser breeds.
It's like either get bit by a Lab, who bites once and is done like getting punched once by Justin Beiber.
or get mauled by a pit who multiple bites and wont let go even when hit over the head with objects, like getting pummeled by Mike Tyson.

PITBULLS KILL MORE PEOPLE THAN ANY OTHER BREED AND YOU CAN'T DENY THAT OR DISPROVE IT

It's not the dog that is bad or the owner. These dogs attack because it is their instinct. Just like the sweetest nature dog may growl at you if you mess with him when he is eating. It isn't because he is a bad dog or been trained to attack, he is just responding to his instinct. I believe every pit bull has the possibility of having that attack instinct triggered and these owners touting the "responsible pet owner" theory are deceiving themselves. I believe it is incredibly irresponsible of us as a society to allow this breed to propagate.

Pit Bull dogs are NOT the problem. The owner is the problem. People need to educate themselves prior to being able to own an animal and Politicians need to educate themselves and the public they are representing prior to making new laws.

I see you have an aggressive tone yourself and you have the numbers. Too bad you don't have all of your research done.

I sure hope you do not own an animal or have children because that frame of mind u s what gets people looking at only the negative and is incredibly ignorant and shows signs of a person that is truly uneducated on breeds.

I think to ensure my safety and to be proactive, there a ight to be very stringent laws about where men are allowed. Centuries of evidence clearly document that men are much more likely to commit a dangerous crime than women. They are by far the most dangerous gender. I want to feel safe from rape, assault, murder, and I have the right to be safe in my own home and neighborhood. I'm not advocating for the eradication of men, just for tight control. They should not be allowed in certain areas and should be very regulated where allowed. The reduction in violent crimes would be astounding.
Makes about the same sense, if not more, than BSL. In fact, men are responsible for way more deaths and maiming than all dog breeds put together.
