"This is America"...I should be able to have a meth lab in my back yard as long as I'm responsible.
"This is America"...I should be able to have a loaded AK-47 on me when I drink beer on my front porch as long as I'm responsible.

The list could go on, but haven't the statistics proven that pit bulls are BY FAR the most hazardous dog when it comes to public safety? I've heard tons of reports about pit bull maulings where it was their first ever attack and it lived in a loving home. You can't ignore statistics like the one's slug posted by saying, "oh that's just the ones with the bad owners". Which is probably the reason why the majority of the Libertarian crowd failed to appropriately respond to them.
Seriously, there is no point in owning a pit bull. There are literally thousands of other breeds out there to choose from, but you choose...the most dangerous breed available by a wide margin. Think about how stupid that sounds...
Sorry but the tone of my post was nothing like you describe. Also your comparisons are far fetched and juvenile. I suggest you read my posts again and see if you get the point this time.
