You can ban pit bulls, but I bet the number of dog deaths and attacks wouldn't even go down.
And, instead of officially banning them, the government and insurance companies just make it more expensive to own and insure them. You have a pool, you pay more for homeowners' insurance. You have a ridiculously fast car, you pay more for car insurance. The list goes on.
