Exacty what is the point of banning so many breeds of dogs, banning pit bulls is cliche but whats with all the other bans? i mean shar-pei's? chow chows how rediculous, i mean its reduculous to ban pit bulls but who the hell are these idiots who keep banning breeds every year? something needs to be done on the basis that they are breaking the constitution and it should never have been allowed in the first place and now its completely out of control.
There aren't "united states bans". The US doesn't have any breed ban in effect for any specific breed of dog (though they do have bans in effect for other specific animals, mongoose comes to mind). All bans I know of are limited to a specific city or county. I don't even think there's even any state in the US that bans a particular breed of dog. Most breed bans in cities seem to happen like this. Someone gets bitten/severely mauled by a particular breed of dog. Nevermind that the dog is kept on a 6 foot chain in the yard, is poorly socialized, underfed, and the owners frequently let it roam around while they're off doing whatever. However, it's a big dog, it did some serious damage. Suddenly, someone remembers 'my uncle's sister's daughter' got bitten by the same breed of dog! once is an accident, twice is obviously a conspiracy (sarcasm). So therefore all dogs of this breed must be Evil and must not be allowed to exist without strict limitations on breeding and ownership. Oh and they have to be muzzled in public and the current owners have to pay a $150+ licensing fee to own their dogs, even though they've never had a single incident. What it boils down to is this. Some people are stupid, and don't take responsibility for either their actions or the actions/care of their pets. Responsible owners suffer for their stupidity.
