Petitioning City of Hagerstown, MD

Stop the City wide ordinance against Pit Bulls.

This ordinance will require all Pit Bull owners to submit proof that their dog is friendly and isn't a potential threat to anyone. All dogs must be muzzled and leashed, and kept indoors. If dogs are outside, they must have a specific pen that meets height requirements and is always locked. The Chief of Poice, of Hagerstown, Arthur Smith, is ensuring that this ordinance is passed. He is also pushing for all dogs with Pit in them to not be allowed in the city.
This also refers to the following dogs,
(1) Staffordshire Bull Terrier breed of dogs;
(2) American Pit Bull Terrier breed of dogs;
(3) American Bulldog;
(4) Bull Terrier; and
(5) All dogs which have the appearance of being predominantly of the breed of dogs known as Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, American Bulldog or Bull Terrier. Predominantly shall mean that the dog exhibits the physical characteristics of a Pit Bull Terrier more than any other breed.

The way a dog acts is based on how it was raised! I am not ignorant enough to believe that the breed is at blame, and the owner isn't.
Any dog is corrupted if it's owner is! Please, help me end this sterotyping!
