Dog control a joke
Potential legislation governing owners of certain breeds of dogs would require people to jump through the following hoops: submit to a background check, enroll in a four-hour safety course, alert their insurance company and get a special permit from the Department of Insurance (“Pit bull bill likely to be put to sleep in General Assembly,” April 20).
Yes, there have been damaging attacks by dogs, but I have never heard of one killing 20 children and six adults at one time. Should this legislation pass, in some states it would be easier to own an assault rifle than a dog.
Maybe the SPCA and like organizations can garner enough money and members to form a powerful lobby that would buy the defeat of any proposed “dog control” legislation.
