Finally, i'm actually surprised this isn't done nationally. Since dogs are considered property, you can't deem it "dangerous" without it causing some action of being dangerous.

Like you can own fertilizer if you're a farm, but if you blow up a few storage sheds, they can take it away from you. Or if you own a car that goes 200 MPH, you can't say it's dangerous and ban it, unless you drive it in a dangerous manner.

I'm very surprised that breed bans have lasted this long. I don't think they are constitutional, but i'm no lawyer. But if you can't deem property dangerous without cause, i don't know how BSL ever flew in the first place.

That's a very good point, RtH, and a measure of how skewed and warped the legal system has become.

Nice!

So apparently this breed ban banned dogs with the term "pit" or "bull" in their breed name. THAT'S HOW THEY WORD THAT? Doesn't American Staffordshire Terrier NOT have the term "bull" or "pit" in their name?? And doesn't that ban french bulldogs, english bulldogs, etc?

It's no more stupid than all the other BSLs out there.
