No more (pit) bull

Given a choice, I'd feel more comfortable living next door to a neighbor who was stockpiling an armory than someone who owned a pit bull.

I read police reports like this a couple times a week at my day job but rarely do the stories end with a small boy in the hospital. And there's not much in the way of statistics that confirms my concerns - usually smaller dogs like Daschunds and Chihuahuas finish near the top of any list of aggressive breeds.

But my instincts and evidence of the damage pit bulls can wreak on unsuspecting humans won't allow me to listen to the numbers or pleas of animal activists.

(This story is a little old but still relevant to the discussion).
