    Omaha City Council Approves Dangerous Dog Ordinance - Omaha News Story - KETV Omaha

    Could this be precedent setting? :eusa_think:

    I'm especially intrigued by the liability insurance part.

    my understanding is that many homeowners policies already either won't cover certain breeds or cost substantially more if you own certain breeds. i have a miniature poodle, so i'm applying for a rebate.

    at one time, i owned an american staffordshire terrier. i had to put it down. it was one of the saddest days of my life to that point, but i felt it was the right thing to do. for real.

    Disgusting! Disgusting! Disgusting!

    Banning a pitbull is like banning a certain type of car because more people get hit by it than any other car. Like the car, a pitbull attacking a human is caused by poor ownership. If you raise ANY dog, no matter what breed, the way these assholes raise pitbulls, you'll get a vicious dog on your hands.

    However, if you raise a pitbull like a family raises a golden retriever, you'll get the same outcome - a wonderful, happy, loyal dog. BAN THE PEOPLE - NOT THE DOG!
