Stop the City of Bristol, Connecticut from passing BSL.

- BSL bans or restricts dogs based solely on their appearance due to the idea that these dogs are dangerous. BSL does not take into account the actions, behavior, or history of the dog, it only considers the physical appearance of the dog.

-BSL is not only unfair and unethical, it is also ineffective. BSL fails to increase public safety because it does not address the real issue of owner irresponsibility.

- Pit Bull is in fact, not a breed of dog. The term Pit Bull is associated with three breeds of dog: American Staffordshire Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Dog Bite statistics put all three of these breeds into the same category. No other breed is subjected to this categorization.

-BSL invariably punishes responsible dog owners, as they are the ones most likely to comply with the law.

A heartbreaking example of how BSL destroys innocent lives.

      Not all Pitbull owners have bad dogs. It's the way they are brought up. I feel that if your dog is aggressive then but the dog on medication. I own a pitbull and he is the most lovable dog

      Wake up and realize that you are making a mistake that will one day show how ignorant you were for even considering this law, the same way our elders were for Racial segregation.

      Because i own two well behaved Pitbulls

      This just shows how society is no better then when we destroyed the American Indians & put Africans in chains. New target facing genocide American Pitbull Terrier.

      Eliminating an entire breed saying their born dangerous is obsurd. Ive owned Pitbulls for 25 yrs 5 dogs and no problems.

      The problem is Bad Owners who exploit them for,fighting, Intimidation or just abuse them.States are killing well mannered dogs & puppys who have done nothing. Sadly someone will have to go postal before they fix this.

      If you raise a dog to fight and attack, it will do so. If you raise a dog to love and honor, it will do so. The owners of the dogs are to blame, not the dogs themselves.

      Bristol, Connecticut - - - - - you are so totally ignorant, uninformed, unenlightened, and stupid that you can't even read the scientific information that is now out about certain dog breeds and how they are NOT in any way, aggressive. The results also state that those dogs have been proven to be very safe breeds, and very trustworthy. It is the way PEOPLE mistreat the dogs and/or they attack train them to become aggressive. IT IS HUMANS THAT ARE THE PROBLEM HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT ANY OF THE DOGS!! BLAME THEIR HUMANS, NOT THEM!!!!!!! I'd be willing to bet that you are going after pit bulls, and all the breeds that are similar to them like Staffordshire Terriers, and other bull-y looking breeds. IN ACTUALITY, IT IS THE COLLIE THAT BITES THE MOST!!!!!!!!!!!!! And everyone knows just how sweet collies are!!!!!!!!!!! Do you see just how very stupid and ignorant you really are?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STOP IT!!!!

      STOP THISPOINTLESS, EVIL NONSENSE!!!!

      YOU ARE DOING THIS OUT OF YOUR OWN PREJUDICES!!!!!!! Y*O*U*R PREJUDICES!!!

      STOP THIS RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE ARE GOING TO DROWN YOU WITH THESE PETITIONS, YOU EVIL MORONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
