I think pit bulls are mean, vicious dogs that should be illegal in the U.S.A. Who could possibly want to own such a terrifying beast in their home especially around their children and family? This matter is constantly getting worse each year, and we need to act now to stop this problem.

It isn't just children getting attacked though, everyone seems to be the target for these monsters.

Pit bulls are a very serious issue that should be resolved as soon as possible. These animals weren't meant to be good family pets, but dangerous wild animals that should be illegal. Together we all can stop the progression of this evil beast.

Mr. Frankboner,

I would like to know why it is that you think that Pittbulls are mean and vicious dogs? Are you speaking out of personal experience, fact, or just media hype?

What makes you say that the problem is getting worse each year? I don't find statistics to support that statement Sir.

And actually if you look up the characteristics on the dog kennel sites, they will tell you that Pittbulls possess all of the qualities that one wants in a family dog. However, you have to be a responsible owner and socialize your dog properly.

I assure you that I have two, that have been properly socialized with both people and other dogs and they are the best dogs. My dogs are not aggressive and they are two years old. I have three children and my pitts would never harm my kids. As a matter of fact, if I try to discipline my children by spanking them, my dogs stand between me and my child to protect them.

Please educate yourself on this matter before you go ranting about something that you are so wrong about!

It is not PITTBULLS who should be banned or stopped, it is irresponsible pet owners that should be stopped!
