Guys, no reasonable BSL would "round up pit bulls and euthanize them".
In the UK, the law was that all pit bull type dogs had to be registered with a certain agency and be neutered and to be tagged. Those dogs were free to live their lives with their families. No breeding. When they died, the end. It wasn't a fast solution, but it was reasonable. It is the kind of solution we could come up with if Pit Bull owners weren't so stubborn and emotional.
BTW, I have 3 dogs, a pug, pomeranian and Cavalier King Charles. Prior to that, I had a pug and a Rottweiler. I loved the Rottweiler more than any of them. But my toddler dropped a piece of cheese and my dog reached for it the same time my son did. My dog defied his training. He was trained (formal obedience and daily work) to step back and sit. Instead he barked a warning bark, showed his teeth, and got the cheese. We put him down the next day and we all cried for a month, but it was what was the message the Rottweiler Breed Club was putting out. I was very active with in the AOL online forums, and everyone agreed - not one person dissented.. I remember one person who I didn't even like actually said to me "Your dog showed aggression towards your baby. How could you responsibly tolerate that?" I was devastated that he, in his old age, got cranky, but we don't risk that stuff in my house.
Responsible? There's not a single responsible person in office anywhere. They get elected and then do whatever they think is going to keep them in office or get re-elected. None of them follow their own primal morals because they're politicians.
And it has happened before. Here's a direct quote from an article about the 1987 Denver, Colorado pit bull ban. This ban extended to any dog that even resembled a pit bull.
"Denver's controversial Pit Bull Ban, which took effect in 1987 after a slew of attacks, has resulted in the execution of over 3,497 dogs, according to Westword."
"The Denver pit bull ban has been a subject of intense debate
in Denver recently, as protesters
have descended on city hall to call for an end to the ban. The city enacted a one-year moratorium on the ban in 2004 after the State of Colorado passed a law making the singling out of breeds illegal. The moratorium ended when the City of Denver won a law suit that determined the state law unconstitutional. The pit bull ban has been in place since."
I would post the link but there are disturbing pictures on it showing a pile of euthanized dogs.
People had the choice of either MOVING from their home in Denver, or fighting to get their dog back after being confiscated. Sadly, most of them failed.
