well, I clearly disagree with all of y'all who think breeds should be banned, it's ridiculous and it's like banning guns.....it ain't gonna work, all breeds/mixes will bite if conditions are set up that they are fearful, provoked, trained by some bloodthirsty idiot and abused and neglected by idiots. I say we ban all off-spring of low IQ individuals.

For the sake of honing our critical thinking skills, let's parse your point of view about dangerous dogs (of all types).

I think you'll cede this point: guns aren't like dogs at all. Guns are inanimate objects and animals are living creatures that have instincts to which they're captive. Instincts are subject to breeding; that's why the Westminster Dog Show separates dogs into categories of sporting breeds, hound breeds, toy breeds, and so on.

Dogs aren't like humans, either, so there's no sense saying, "let's ban all offspring of low IQ individuals." It may be that low IQ individuals are the reason pit bulls have become dangerous as a breed, but what's done is done. There doesn't appear to be a movement afoot to rehabilitate the pit bull breed to be reliably docile. I think Mankind has bigger fish to fry. Pitbulls as a breed are simply not docile and it doesn't look like this situation is going to change anytime soon.

In the meantime, more people will die from pitbull attacks. I know you disagree, but a human life is infinitely more valuable than a dog life.

You believe YOUR pitbull to be reliably docile, but the many YouTube videos I've posted show this not to be the case in the pitbull population at large. All the attacks were by family pitbull pets.

The practical reality--which I proved by posting the statistics--is that pitbulls are inordinately more prone to violent attack than any other breed. This is a fact. Therefore, it would serve you, LD, well to always (without fail) keep your darling Sweetums away from children.
