    At what point are we going to wake up and realized that the pitbull breed has been genetically maligned by dog fighting breeders. They are a public safety hazard and should be banned in urban areas at least. Each time someone is attacked and mauled or killed, or a child is mutilated by a pit bull. there is this whole army of idiot pitbull owners who come out claiming that its not the the breed its the fault of the victim or the owner. We hear how sweet their pit bull is and yada yada until another child is chewed up and its always a pitbull. I live in the city and I have obtained a concealed carry permit for just such an occasion. If no one else will I intend to do my part in securing the public safety against pit bulls..

    But BARCS and other groups that put Pit Bulls people will continue to promote this breed. It is not like they don’t know the issue, they refuse to accept it. AND THEY WILL LIE TO YOU AND GET YOU HURT OR WORSE
