how could everyone say that pitbulls should be illegal. how could an animal go from being Americas Dog in WWI to being a hated breed. Dont judge from the media. Poodles bite more people in a year than pitbulls do. They are the most loyal dog you could own and its the people who treat them wrong who make the ignorant people out their think this way. IDK if some of you know this but their are pitbulls in the army who are well decorated with war medals and were also knows as the "nanny dog" for their great reputation with children. take a look at this youtube video and think about what you are saying.

I am a resident of OP Kansas and have 1st hand experience with Pit Bulls. Our spineless City Council and elected officials have made what they would have you believe are some huge steps in controlling pit bulls. Not to bore you with all the mindless BS they are trying to sling, the high light of thier proposal is that current owners must raise their liability insurance from 50K to 300K.
I'm glad we now know what a human life is worth to the elected officials of Overland Park, KS.
HOW MANY PEOPLE MUST BE MAULED OR KILLED BEFORE SOMEONE TAKES THE APPROPRIATE ACTION????!!!!!!
Hey Wondering if you could give me some advice - I have to move to Overland Park and I have pitbulls, old 14 yr. old nice dogs, but can I do it legally? If I raise liability insurence to 300K, will the city let me stay?If you can help, let me know please

Has a poodle ever ripped someones limb off? Don't think so.

All pitbulls should be destroyed. Their jaws are too powerful to be given a chance to bite a child, which has happened far too many times.

So you make a threat and then laugh? At least make an evil laugh, so we'll know you're serious.

Fear is a result of ignorance. OWNERS should be accountable and punished, NOT the dog. I know many sweet and loveable pit bulls.

Ahhhh. This will start to happen all over the place. Florida already passed a law that you could not get homeowners insurance if you own a Pit Bull or Doberman. Shit happens...these dogs are known to bite and severely hurt people; trained to do so or not.

I have been around and played with docile and great family pits. But I also know that if something spooked that dog it has the potential to hurt and maul me. What's the purpose? You can have a great dog for protection, but it doesn't have to be something that has the ability to kill a human if it wants to. Too much risk...no need to have a dog like that as a domesticated pet.
