aparently I sturck a nerve. I can see that a lot of people don't want to see what many, many people consider a family pet banned. But there are a few who see these animals as real and present dangers. And some, who like me, believe that some people are never meant to own these precious animals. I had one myself. Only to see her stolen from me to participate in these dog fights everyone keeps bringing up. I can only assume this was her fate. She was a great dog, and I was a small (well, relatively) child. She was my friend when others were hard to come by. I loved that dog, and occasionally still miss her. But I would absolutely NEVER ban a specific breed of dog for an owner's stupidity and cruelty. I think this covers my opinion. Carry on. ~Garrett edit: I also ask that anyone who voted on this pole please explain fully their reasons for their opinion. It makes the debate more credible, as well as your vote.
