Against the "Dangerous Dog" Muzzle Ordinance in Worcester MA

The only people that are going to suffer for this is the responsible dog owners. The irresponsible ones are still not going to get the proper training, etc and they are ABSOLUTELY not going to muzzle their pit bulls/dobermans etc. The responsible owners are the ones who do the research, get the training and if needed they will muzzle their dog at their own discretion because it is of their own personal opinion that their dog should be ( IE does'ent get along with other dogs etc.) But for someone to tell us we HAVE to muzzle our dog because it is of that breed is un american. It is just like judging a person for their color or ethic, which we all know is wrong. Join me in support AGAINST the muzzle ordinance.

It is just like judging a person for their color or ethic, which we all know is wrong. It is the irresponsible owners dogs that have all the incidents, and they are not going to muzzle their dog. There are other ways to go about this then telling people they must muzzle their dog due to their breed. Instead you should put a first offense, second offense and third offense in place. ACCIDENTS HAPPEN!! No matter what type of breed it is. You should try something like "Dangerous dog legislation" - which focuses on a dog's behavior, history of aggression and owner responsibility - is the only way to protect communities from unsafe dogs. And this DOES NOT target any certain dog breed.
