Canines can be dangerous creatures. Don't buy a big dog for your kids if it's got a bad temperament, because if it wants to kill your kid it will. What makes it want to depends entirely upon how it was raised and what it's heritage is.
You can train any behavior.

You cannot train a temperament.

Because of this, you cannot take a dog with poor lineage that makes it very neurotic and expect to get anything that isn't neurotic.

Where in here is banning Pit Bulls? Nowhere. Banning pit-bulls is like banning .45 calibre ammunition.

But in a country full of people who want to pass laws and feel safer from the dangerous world around them, just about anything is up for grabs.

It is the cornered defenseless animal that is
the most dangerous animal. And many people feel defenseless and cornered in todays state of affairs.

"In this town, having a pit bull or two or three and three kids is not acceptable because we're not going to deal with the consequences of losing a life."

That says it all right there.

On that mentality, might as well stop cars from being able to exceed 75mph. Far more people die of deadly accidents every day than of dog bites.

I mean, hell, if they really want to stop society from dealing with the consequences of losing a life, there are SO many more things they could go after.

But ..

This is issue du jour .... tomorrow it'll be another one. People ARE fucking sheep, and what's worse is that they think they have a brain and like to look at an issue and go "I KNOW HOW TO FIX IT!!!" ... rather than just ignore it because it really ISNT that big of a deal.

Dobermans tend to be a bit prone to snapping. You can raise the world's sweetest dog but there's always a chance a doberman will just snap one day and kill your grandma. nothing you can do about it. They were bred as attack dogs.

Word. We take things like guns for granted. We know they can kill someone, but usually we don't think it can kill you or me. You take that risk. If you knew full well what the risks were and still went with it, you're at fault.
