I think anyone as ignorant as OP should be put down. /thread.
I've heard that pits have a gland that swells in the brain as they get older that causes violent tendencies. Have no idea if that's scientifically true or not but they are mostly bred to fight and mostly come from backyard breeders who have no idea how to raise them from infancy. Pit Bulls should be eradicated IMHO.
We must have stronger background checks on buying pitbulls. I know you dog nuts think we are coming after your pitbulls but its just a registry. Nobody needs a pitbull. There are too many in this country already. Switzerland banned them and look how good they are doing.
2 labs have killed 2 people in the last year... Most people didn't even read or see about it....
Hall of Fame post +1
Cant register all pitbulls if you have no control on who is breeding them.
Not all true... most dont come from backyard breeders, most are not bred to fight.
I'd imagine there is less good breeders of pitbulls than any other breed. I've met multiple great dogs that are pitbulls. I've also met a few that scared the crap out of me. I had a mix that attacked me a year ago (I'm not blaming pit bulls for that incident). There are constant dog attacks in the news but it seems only pit bulls maul their attacker.
In Georgia and Alabama, they do. I don't care what goes on anywhere else as it doesn't effect me.

There are less good breeders period, cause there are so many breeders of all dogs looking to make a dollar.
Well I live in Alabama and know plenty of breeders who are not backyard breeders. You cant say most if you dont have a clue.
To be honest, it seems like only pit bull attacks make the news as opposed to attacks on humans by other breeds.

They have the same toof capacity, same number of legs, same number of eyes as every other breed. You are only trying to come after them because they look scary in your opinion.
There is no such thing as an assault dog. Go away you cray cray lib!
This was a pretty interesting read. From 2005-2012, pits killed someone on average , once every 19 days.
If people can own pit bulls I should be able to own a bear.
I know this is long. Hopefully people read it...
Have you noticed that in any "bull" breed (there are quite a few, and they are all referred to as pit bulls by ignorant people) that the title of the article is "pit bull attacks, or pit bull involved in horrific mauling" so on and so forth. The key there is pit bull is ALWAYS in the article. Why? Because it demands attention.
Like I said in an earlier post, there was a lab that killed 2 little kids here about a year ago. It grabbed them by the head and shook them both to death. The title of the article "dog kills two children".
The media portrays pit bulls as these vicious man eaters when they are the opposite. My wife and i rescued two pit mixes. The male was abused, and used as a training dog for fighting dogs. He was released by the owner when he stopped being of use. He was a stray for atleast two weeks.
He is also the best dog I have ever had. He was extremely skittish around males, and most other dogs. He is completely different now, and will approach people if called. He loves children and will whine if he sees one and can't play / lick the kid.
My neighbors were less than pleased when we brought a pit bull home, especially a rescue dog in the position he was in. People would make their kids come inside when we let him out. It was like they thought he was the devil incarnate whose sole purpose was to attack kids. People that don't know him avoid our side of the street when he is out, and I have even had people yell across the street their disgust that I would own a pit bull.
Let's just say I have dislike people that buy into the medias perception of pit bulls, especially when their breed doesn't even have the highest rate of attacks (even when you include all the "bull" breeds.
I'm going to try to attach a picture of them.
I agree with the post 100%
Also, gorgeous dogs!
Spot on and great looking dogs
Great post bud. Here's a pic of my blue nose puppy next to my friends English mastiff.
