Default Texas looking at statewide BSL!

I wonder if they can actually pass statewide BSL since the state laws actually prohibit breed-specific legislation?

*sigh* There is just so much stupid . . .
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. ~Buddha

Stupid is the most notoriously incurable and contagious disease known to mankind. If you find yourself in close proximity to someone infected with stupid, walk away as soon as said infection is noted.

There are few things more nauseating than pure obedience. ~ Kvothe

and here I thought the state of Texas was all about individual rights and less government intrusion? I guess we'll see?

The article says:

If you live in Texas, contact the two 2011 state legislators Attorney Kent plans to ask to introduce her pit bull ban. Tell them breed bans don't work to keep communities safe, penalize responsible dog owners, and are very costly to enforce and prosecute:

Texas State Sen. Kevin Eltife who has said he will work with Kent to repeal the state ban on breed discrimination and allow local governments to pass breed bans and other breed restrictions.

Texas State Rep. Chuck Hopson
You can also check out the Love-A-Bull Website.... Love-a-Bull is a group in Austin that educates and advocates about pit bulls and pit mixes. I'm sure there are other similar groups, but this is the only one I know about. They also have a Facebook page where they're giving frequent updates about this pending legislation, that might be a good way to stay informed and involved.
