Default Poll on Breed Bans

AP-Petside poll: Training, not nature, makes bully

One part that caught my eye was that 2% of those polled think that all large dogs should be outlawed. Nice to think that 2% of the people out there think that so many kinds of dogs should die.

I'm surprised it is so low. Unfortunately in reality a lot more people hate dogs in general and especially any breed "big enough to cause harm".

Oh, they don't want them to die. They don't think about that. They just want them "outlawed," at which point they will painlessly evaporate as if they had never been. They don't think that actual, real animals have to die, or that little children will cry because the big gentle dog they grew up with is being dragged away with a catch pole, or that old ladies may be denied their only companion. These people think that if you outlaw something, it just goes away. Poof. This is an oddly common belief in our society . .things you outlaw just go away, and there are no consequences or backlash. You just say, "there ought to be a law," and presto, the problem is gone!

What I find very strange is that pit bulls really aren't that large . . .

Also, the reason its only 2% is that they polled pet owners. If they'd polled the general public, well, it would have been MUCH higher. On the other hand, that's 2% of pet owners who support breed bans, so its actually if less than that of pet owners . . . enough to be a statistical fluke.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not YOUR lawyer. Nothing I say should be taken as legal advice.

The Court's extensive review of these pages serves as a useful reminder that loaded guns, sharp objects and law degrees should be kept out of the reach of children.

Noooo! They are 100 pounds of muscle with laser eyes, locking jaws, double rows of teeth on the top and bottom jaw and are responsible for world hunger.
