    Most people encounter a handful of OPDs (Other Peoples Dogs) in a year; I used to encounter two or three dozen a day. Unusual circumstances. Most I made friends with easily. A few not so much.

    Re: Should pit bulls be banned?

    How exactly would the world be effected in a significantly negative way if pit bulls were banned?

    They are no longer part of the food chain - they are nothing more then subservient quadrupeds - so no effect there.

    They can easily be replaced by other dogs as pets or for other quadruped duties.

    So no negative effect of any noticeable significance.


    I say neuter them all (along with ALL 'pets' that can easily kill a child and have done so in numerous instances in the recent past) and stop the species from reproducing and simply wait until they expire OR send them to countries that actually want them.

    If you have one - fine, keep it. But only with a signature on an agreement with your local law enforcement detachment that you take full and complete legal and financial responsibility for any injuries/deaths that your pet causes PLUS with your assurance that your animal can no longer reproduce.


    These 'pets' have killed far too many children...they are not worth it to the human race, imo.

    To weigh owning a pet or having children killed by said pet is not even worth a discussion.

    If these dogs are killing children (they are) AND they are not necessary for humanity (they are not) then get rid of them.

    Name hundreds of things that are unpredictable yet preventable and that are semi-analogous to pits...

    That is ridiculous. Dogs sense a person's mood. You are a person and should take in the person's character.

    Dogs love me. Always have... at least until my divorce when I started walking the beach thinking things out... in a generally bad mood and all of a sudden I am being attacked or threatened by dogs left and right over the summer. Total bull**** too... just walking along minding my own business. I think you need to rethink your statement because it leaves a lot out of the equation.

    Re: Should pit bulls be banned?

    I agree with the OP in that many of the problems associated with pitbulls would not occur if not for behavior of their owners. As someone who generally supports the idea of animal rights within reasonable limits, I oppose banning pitbulls or any dog breed for that matter, and would instead support stronger legal punishment for animal cruelty and mistreatment of animals in order to reduce occurrences of attacks in the first place.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
