Ah - found it now. What I cannot find is any group which unites to support this, to me, excellent measure! In my view no one should be allowed to keep a pit bull or mastiff and I'm delighted that the town I'm hoping to buy in, has implemented this measure.

As for the bite index not going down after the UK rule was passed, this was owing to the law not having any teeth, so to speak. Brutal little thugs with feral pit bulls still terrorize areas.

'Punish the deed not the breed?' How about punishing the owners?

'All dogs can be vicious?' Yeah, right - my labrador could just slobber you to death.

Long live BSL!

Breed specific legislation. An effort to set legal limits on the type dog you may own, increasing insurance rates for what is deemed a "dangerous" breed - anything legally that is being attempted to differentiate one breed from any other. There are negative connotations associated with this, as many towns in the U.S. are outlawing having certain breeds of dogs within the city limits, or attempting to force a spay/neuter of this breed, or charge you extra licensing fees.
