My original opinion on pitbulls was based on the mauling by a PB that I witnessed as a child,no one 'spoon fed' me that opinion,i saw it.
And i have since done my own research and the advocates are always owners and or breeders.who insist their dog is just lovely and that indeed by nature all PB's are.
So here is my major problem with that argument
1.So was the dog that almost murdered my pal,according to his owner
Until the early part of the 19th century the Bulldog was bred with great care in England for the purpose of baiting bulls
2.In the event they have a dog who was raised correctlu and that it just 'snaps' the damage is too severe for the victim
3.I get people like dogs and have a right to own them but WHY does it have to be a dog bred to be so strong
4.I think any dog not limited to PB's that the average person has little chance of defendig against,and a brutal history has no place in suburbia.

How can a banned dog bite anyone?
You folks must be nuts.
And yes if a dog kills someone the owner should face
the same penalty. Maybe then they would be more responsible.
If the dog seriously injures someone the owner should lose all
their material possessions and have their salary garnished.
People with dogs that bark incessantly hate their neighbors
and thats why they have such dogs.
ATTS was established to:
- Provide for a uniform national program of temperament testing of purebred and spayed/neutered mixed-breed dogs.
- Conduct seminars to disseminate information to dog owners, dog breeders and evaluators (testers) concerning dog psychology, motivation, reaction and other aspects of temperament testing.
- Recognize and award certificates to dogs that pass the requirements of the temperament evaluation. Work for the betterment of all breeds of dogs.
- Select, train, prepare and register temperament evaluators.

Of course the ban doesn't do anything. No ban ever does anything.
The problem with dogs attacking is rooted solely with the owners of the dog. A ghetto trash inbred moron who wants an angry agressive dog will have an angry agressive dog whether it's a chiuahua or one of the many breeds commonly referred to as "bull dog".
Interestingly enough those "bull dog" breeds consistently score higher on the temperment scale than many other breeds commonly thought of as "safe".
There is no difference between a ban on a breed of dog and a ban on a race of human.
