Batman is not the topic of this thread. Take that to the Colorado Shooting thread or create an entirely new thread centered about banning Batman.

The topic here is the banning of a breed of dogs, not a fictional character.

Wrong thread, wrong topic.

Umm - I wasn't discussing banning Batman - I was pointing out the stupidity of banning a breed of dog and thinking that it will solve a problem.

But given your ability to selectively ignore what I write - as evidenced in the past in other threads - I am not surprised that my main point went entirely over your head.

Pretty sure that's an attempt to derail the topic and thread. Take it elsewhere, you goof.

I didn't try to derail the thread - I made a point about pit bulls in an indirect manner. You wouldn't be complaining if the Batman reference didn't have something to do with a current event.

Is this better: should we ban cars?

Banning pit bulls sounds just as stupid as banning cars does, in my opinion.

Oh my gosh, the bird and the baby pics..............heck with the money & poision

I see why you used the Batman movie to compare, some are calling to ban the movie like that's the problem. Same with dogs if people would just know their dog or not own a dog the world would get along with dogs much better.

Dogs are not wanted in the ME and now their being sent to the United States.
