    This is the standard reply made by ALL Pit owners....until their Pit kills them or a child.
    In some cases when a Pit attacks the adult owner all I can think is.....Another Darwin award

    Still legal to own them.
    Still the responsibility of the owner in all liability. Are you suggesting a ban by the nanny state? Big government intervention?
    You going to rip pets from the hands of owners?

    Literally sounds the same as gun control.

    A google search isn’t the number of attacks.

    First, dog bites in general: https://www.caninejournal.com/dog-bite-statistics/

    • You have a 1 in 112,400 chance of dying from a dog bite or strike
      • You are at more risk of dying from:
        • Cataclysmic storm: 1 in 66,335
        • Contact with hornets, wasps and bees: 1 in 63,225
        • Air and space transport incidents: 1 in 9,821
        • Firearm discharge: 1 in 6,905
        • Choking from inhalation and ingestion of food: 1 in 3,461
        • Heart disease and cancer: 1 in 7
    Over 30 breeds and dog-types were associated with dog bite-related fatalities

    Yes. A rare event.

    Interesting...and your chances of being in a mass shooting are 1000 times LESS THAN THAT....FAR more "rare"
    But you're all aboard the hysterical gun grabber train.
    Seems your concept of "rare" events is rather biased.

    Probably says more about you then me. I have a greater chance of dying from a gun then a dog.

    I don’t call for banning all guns.

    Depends on where you live. In Chicago that's probably true. But again, are the Guns doing the violence or the sick person holding it? Do they not use knives and vehicles etc?

    You also have a greater chance of being killed by lightning than by a gun. Perhaps you have phobic tendencies?

    You shouldn't be calling for banning ANY guns. You should be calling for cures to Social Ailments that are the actual root of all the violence because it's not just guns.
    FAR more people are killed by drunk and texting drivers. Where's the outrage?

    Do you have any idea the odds of being stabbed in the UK? It's a national crisis.
    What makes you think that even if certain guns were banned that murders wouldn't still rise?
    So Death by Gun....bad. But death by knife....OK. ?

    Worst of all.....show me your written guarantee that the USA is forever free from and totally immune to government tyranny....the real reason people have modern defensive arms.

    And spare me the "it doesn't happen in modern times" garbage. FAR too many recent examples of just that occurring. People need to remain well armed, even if the cost is a small number of tragedies annually. Just as people still need cars and cell phones, even though many people die due to both each year.

    And a Pitbull attack is much more likely to kill or seriously injure you than an attack by any other breed.
