What a moronic statement.
1. I.Q. tests are notoriously innacurate. Especially the internet ones. They are really just a measure of test taking skills and have almost no measure of real life performance. If you truly believe you are any better than anyone else based on a test euthanasia is the best option for you.
2. Absolutely no one can claim that everything they say is correct.

You sir are an idiot.

At least you called me sir. I am correct when I say that pit bulls have no use in our society.

I am sorry but you should be punishing the people that had the dog not the dog itself that dog doesn't deserve that the people are the ones that trained it to be aggresive. I have a German Shepard named Sandy and she is a very loving dog and she has not ever attacked any of the kids in the house or in the neighborhood. I have a friend that has pitbulls and they are some of the sweetest dogs. Kalhi was killed by a person in the neighborhood because she was a pitbull and the police didn't even care. STOP BSL!!!!!!!!!!

Pit Bulls kill - plain and simple. They need to all be euthanized
Stereotyping Pit Bull owners is wrong, as well as generalizing the breed as "Agressive". Alchohol KILLS, and yet it is legal. So saying PB should be euthanized is as idiotic as saying Breweries should be demolished.
I own 2 Pits and everyone that knows them can prove how lovable they are, From the Vet to the playgroup at daycare. Sending time with them, showing them love and affection and discipline has EVERYTHING to do with their behavior.
Stating that PB owners R up to no good is stupid. I own a legitimate business, pay taxes and I am a responsible citizen, I don't live in "The Ghetto" nor do I use my dogs to prove anything.
My neighbor's Pomeranian is more vicious than any of my 80lbs. dogs.
Those who think PB should be banned want to cover the Sun with one finger, the problem lies in Irresponsible owners who have their dogs for show and YES, possibly to compensate for their lack of balls.

I agree with the dogs only do what they are taught, but it has to do with breeding as well. If it is in a dogs blood line to be a fighter or an attacker then it is in their genes to do just that. Not saying that all pit bulls are bad, but you have to make sure you get a pit from a breeder that breeds them to be family dogs and not fighters.

Pitt bulls do kill people! You don't hear of any other breed killing people. They were bred to take down a bull. they are a very powerful breed with very powerful jaws and do not compare to any other breed. Now their might be more aggressive dogs but they just can't do the damage a pit can do. The laws do need to be stricter on pit bull owners. I don't think they should all be put down but I do think the law does need to be stricter if you are going to own a pit.

wow bred to take down a bull, that would be impressive. Its the pitbulls tied up in the back yard their whole life, and the day they break free what do you think is gonna happen. people should just be dealt a harsher penalty if they dont want to be responsible dog owners.Jail Time, lots of it not a slap on the wrist or a small fine.

rottweiler has the most powerful jaws so ban these too. and mastiff, bull dogs,cane corso, some of these breeds were bred to battle in war and now are some of the most loving pets!
maybe we should just get rid of people

I have a few bits and they have NEVER bitten anyone, or charged at anyone! we have raised ours right and dont think they should be punished for other owners stupidity and carelessness. I would move out of the city before i ever considered getting rid of my pitts.

It is not always the owner. See there is this thing called dna and if you get a pitt that has a blood line of fighting then it could have that trait in its dna. I don't think all pitts are bad but I also do not believe that everytime a pitt attacks its the owners fault. It could be in the blood line or it could have a high prey drive. It is a dog.

I do understand both sides of the story but Pitbulls are a very strong dog and the bite of a pit bull does not compare to other breeds. When other breeds bite people it does not do the damage of pits. I have owned pitbulls and various other breeds throughout my life and pitbulls are an aggresive dog. I stopped having pits as pets when my children were born simply because of that. They need to be raised carefully and in good environment to fix their temperment.
Wow.... You quit owning pit bulls when you had kids? Pit bulls were once Nanny dogs. &in WWI Pit bulls were the poster child odor the US. Ppl should really learn about the breed before you discriminate, &learn about any breed before you get any dog for that matter.

So... I would assume (from such moronic statement) that you are of an understanding/belief that pitbulls are the only animal that bites (?). WOW!!
