Texas wants to propose "Justin's Law" and have owning a pitbull a felony. This is so wrong on so many levels. It is unfair for pitbulls to be singled out from all the other types of dog breeds. Any dog can be aggressive and bite someone. A pitbull does not raise itself to be aggressive and want to harm people. It is the owner who raises their dogs, they should be at fault here.
In The Huffington Post, you can read about the on going debate with this issue. Here is the link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/24/pit-bull-ban-texas_n_813067.html
Let's take action and stop Texas from even trying to get this law passed and save the pitbull breed!
I was upset to hear about these recent issues with banning pitbulls in Texas. Many incidents have occurred and they have been blamed on the dog breed instead of the owner. I am asking you to reconsider passing Justin's Law and making it a felony to own a pitbull. I don't think it's right in any way for them to be singled out from all the other dog breeds.
