People generally want Pit Bulls and other Bully breeds banned for 2 main reasons:
1. Thugs who need a tough dog to feel tough intentionally doing everything they can to make their dogs mean. This includes, beating, starving, baiting, feeding weird crap like gunpowder....They also never socialize, train, or neuter their dogs. This intentionally creates a dog that is both dog and human aggressive and will most likely kill other pets and end up being euthanized for biting someone.
2. Well intentioned but irresponsible people who refuse to admit that their dog might be aggressive toward other animals. Even though the Pit Bull breed was created to fight combining the Bulldog's power with the Terrier's tenacity and dog aggression, some folks just insist that "Scooter isn't like that. He loves everybody!' These are the ********s who take Scooter to the dog park and can't understand why he ate a Poodle. This breed is more likely to have issues with other dogs than most other breeds and owners need to admit that and not set their dogs up to fail.
If everyone used common sense and compassion when breeding, raising, training, and living with Pit Bulls, there would be no need to talk about banning them. Unfortunately, you can't fix stupid and it seems to be contagious.
The reason Pit Bull have to be banned is because it is Constitutionally impossible to ban the types of owners that insist on perpetuating the dangers these dogs present to the public due to their ignorance and arrogance. So, instead of banning the people responsible, the dogs get banned instead and everyone suffers for it.
True; a properly raised, trained, and contained Pit Bull is no danger to the public. But their owners get complacent and cocky because their dog is ''well behaved''. And that's when the proverbial shyytte hits the fan. The dogs natural instincts kick in, the owner isn't prepared for it, and someone gets hurt OR worse....
