    Rotties aren't a banned breed.

    I know that, but by their logic banning pit bulls would stop these kinds of things, and its worked real well, hasn't it? :p

    No - the logic was that banning pit bulls would stop pit bull attacks - and through a process of elimination, it has ;)

    They didn't ban pit bulls to stop rottie attacks, or lab attacks ;)

    Well, the logic was to stop pit bull attacks, but since they seemed to think pit bulls were responsible for a disproportionate number of dog attacks, the theory would be that there would be fewer people hurt by dogs. I have no idea how well this worked in England, but I believe it was a total failure where they have installed breed bans here. Irresponsible owners will just get another breed . . .

    Why did this have to be turned into a Pittie argument anyway?
