Petitioning Ken Cockayne and 9 others

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.
