Editor’s note: Please politely inform the Douglasville Mayor and City Council that “pit bull” is not a breed and that breed-specific legislation (BSL) is ineffective, unenforceable, and unconstitutional.

From the Times-Georgian:

The city council’s consideration of a proposal that would regulate ownership of pit bulls drew lively discussion during its Sept. 2 Public Safety Committee meeting and comment from the Georgia director of the Humane Society at its legislative work session that followed.

…Components of the proposal look at requiring pit bull owners to house only one dog per pen, but not necessarily one dog per owner, and the dogs would have to be registered and have a microchip implanted.

Pit bull owners would be able to keep the ones they have, but wouldn’t be allowed to have any more, according to the discussion, and a person could be fined as much as $500 if found to be in violation.

    This ban is unconstitutional and outrageous for law abiding citizens!

  3. Scooter says:

    I love the fact that this highly conservative Mayor wants to ban “Pits” but if anyone tried to take his guns away then he would say it is unconsitutional and there is no way they can do that. What a dumb hypocrite!

  4. Alec says:

    The mayor stated that it is only Pit Bull’s that he sees on TV. That is his basis. Are you kidding me?

  5. Kitty says:

    please do not judge Douglasville by this ignorant fool’s misguided beliefs! Many of us will be there to fight this injustice!
