What a waste of money this will be. Dogs are not protected under our constitution. The city has the right to pass any ordnance within it's city limits. They had a public hearing and nobody was concerned enough to even show up for that. Now they want something done because a couple got a ticket. Absolutely remarkable.

No one should be able to tell you what kind of pet you choose. Bees kill more people every year than dogs and people have robbed bee hives for hundreds of years. I can go buy a queen bee and the bees can build a hive and we can all pray freddy boswell gets his ass tore up. Just an idea.

Silly New LLano, looking out for the safety their residents. I guess when they banned the lady from having bangel tigers that wrong. Let's just throw all the rules out the window, let everyone do what they please. People can be trusted to do the right thing. Right?

Ok and all the neighbors that griped about the family who had goats. You were wrong. And all neighbors who griped about the guy who has.\had chickens you were wrong. And that family who wants to grow illegal drugs, go right ahead No rules in NEW LLANO. NO one should be able to tell you what to do. Oh and the family who wants to let their yard look like a trash dump. Whatever. Oh and the guy who wants to play your music so loud my windows rattle. OK. No law should keep you quiet. Oh and the family who fights in their yard at 3 in the morning. Don't worry the neighbors won't call the cops. You have rights. Grandma you stand at the bus stop with a baseball bat just in case a neighbors dog is running loose at bus time. Sorry, you know they have rights. Senior citizens who walk in the morning with a stick to protect your self. Sorry, those other guys have rights. NL police officer, why are you being mean and writing that guy who was doing 40 in a 20 mph zone when kids were getting off busses ? Who do you think you are? Don't you know that guy has rights?

Who cares that my right to have a safe, clean, quiet neighborhood has been taken away.. You have rights, regardless of the cost to the rest of us. Silly us. We are sorry.

So all locals are uneduacted? Nice way to catagorize you neighbors. I have traveled the world and fought for your right to call US that. Laws are great and keep the majority of the population in check but not all. Do not throw rocks at someone who only throws words you do not agree with. How many old ladies have you heard of being attacked at a bus stop in new llano?
Towns make local laws thru the council that alot of times make said laws to look good. Alot of those local laws they wanna force on the people but they dont apply to the council or the mayor etc. Hell even state laws dont apply to them ie: speed limits (just saying). So long story is STFU

You compare apples and oranges and I see where some could think you are all uneduacted. Just a perception.

I guess the town should have properly written the ordinance in a way that allows due process to these dog owners! Yes the town has a right to pass laws, but they must not be in violation of state/federal laws, and must also be mindful if the constitutional rights of the citizens.

look I own boxers and never had a complaint on them and was given a citation for being in violation of the pit bull ban I don't have a problem with any law but if you make a law you need to have the people who are supposed to enforce the law properly educated on how to enforce that law not just hand out tickets and make you prove your innocence

The law is deemed unconstitutional because of how it's written, not about the dogs to which it is applied. New Llano certainly has the right to pass whatever laws they'd like, but they do not have carte blanche to write a vague law with multiple interpretations and then enforce it in any way they see fit. The way the law reads opens anyone who owns any dog up to the potential of citation, whether the dog is in fact a pit bull or not. Plus, the way they are enforcing it is a violation of humans' constitutional rights. They use DNA tests clearly labeled as not for use to determine breed, and they have officers making the determination without any official training. The accused have no effective course of action other than to get rid of the dog or move. They have no due process, which violates their rights.
