Selective Breed Legislation

It is doggy racism. Where a city will round up all the dogs based only on how they look. Even if there is no history of violence or aggression. Now most of these crimes are only at the city level. However there have been some rumors flying around the "tin-foil" community that say it may start going state wide. Now, I am all for getting bad doggies off the street. Better yet, putting bad owners in their place. However there have been hundreds ,if not thousands, of family pets being killed. Dogs that have never even chased a cat. Dogs that are loved and spoiled by good owners. Please be aware of possible legislation in your state or country.

Might want to add some more info on this, because as of this moment you're giving fuck all info other than they're killing dogs...

So are you saying that your town is picking up dogs that are strays that they deem to be "bad dogs" to euthanize them? Or are they going into Mr. Smiths back yard and taking his dog cause they consider that breed a "bad dog"?

Maybe they're dogs carrying AK47's.

My vote is on illegal immigrant dogs. They're working as seeing eye dogs and are also guilty of tax fraud and being payed in bacon under the table.

Or they could be undercover agents for the government plotting against the hoi polloi.

The link is not showing up. Let me try another.

None of my links are working. So here is a excerpt from Wikipedia:

" Breed-specific legislation is a law passed by a legislative body pertaining to a specific breed or breeds of domesticated animals. In practice, it generally refers to laws pertaining to a specific dog breed or breeds.

Some jurisdictions have enacted breed-specific legislation in response to a number of well-publicized incidents involving pit bull-type dogs or other dog breeds commonly used in dog fighting, and some government organizations such as the United States Army [1] and Marine Corps [2] have taken administrative action as well. This legislation ranges from outright bans on the possession of these dogs, to restrictions and conditions on ownership, and often establishes a legal presumption that these dogs are prima facie legally "dangerous" or "vicious." In response, some state-level governments in the United States have prohibited or restricted the ability of municipal governments within those states to enact breed-specific legislation."

There are 17 states in America that allow some sort of breed specific legislation.

It's ridiculous. And even more so because many people can't tell the difference between a pitbull and other breeds (or mixed breeds) so often the wrong dog gets blamed just on the basis of how it looks.




I don't like the idea of any breed being outright banned or owners penalized for already owning certain breeds. Unfortunately you can ban pitbulls but owners that want 'scary, aggressive' dogs can just pick from a few other breeds with similar traits and get the same effect with the way they raise them.

The thing about pitbulls is that they are much more easily trained to becoming a killer dog than any other type of breed. They are highly capable of learning, and you don't need much skill to teach them how to kill on command. Some animals, like the German Shepard, can be considered vicious, but that's just because they're very protective of their owner and their owner's property. Unlike the pitbull it will only attack if it considers itself or it's owner(s) to be threatened, while a pitbull can be trained to be a virtual attack dog.

Of course, with a proper trainer then you can make a chiuahua an attack dog, it just takes a hell of a lot more time and skill to train it. That's why they're making certain types of dogs illegal. Basically giving someone a pitbull is like giving them a gun. All they need to know is how to push in a clip, take the safety off and pull the trigger.

MM This sounds familiar - strange how they've successfully banned the former references you made but not your latter.
