    Councilman to Propose Ban on Pitbulls???

    LAKEWOOD, Ohio -- Lakewood City Council will consider an ordinance concerning dangerous dogs at its meeting Monday evening.

    City council will specifically consider prohibiting owning pit bulls or canary dogs.

    Councilman Brian Powers plans to propose the amendment. Last year, residents filed 44 complaints about pit bulls.

    Earlier this year, a pit bull attacked a resident.

    Lakewood's mayor Edward Fitzgerald said he supports the proposed ban.

    If the ordinance passes, owners will be guilty of a misdemeanor crime and could face a fine.

    The meeting is set for 7:30 p.m.

    Stupid...

    Saying Pit bulls (as a breed) are dangerous is like saying spoons make Rosie O'Donnell fat..

    I think that is complete and total BS. I can understand putting restrictions as in someone under 18 cannot own one but honestly pitts can do a lot of damage but they are NOT the only dogs that attack!! I was MAULED by a LAB!! But you don't see people baning them! I have 2 AMAZING and WONDERFUL pitt mixes they are sweet and everyone in the neighborhood loves them my family who is scared of pitts love them so really judge the deed not the breed.

    Yep, all a ban will do is hurt the responsible pet owners and end some good animals lives.

    I personally think it's how people raise them....if they are raised in a loving enviroment LIKE ANY DOG, then they pose no threat.

    I think they should be going after the dog owners IMO.

    I have to agree. I know plenty of pit bulls who are super sweet dogs. I also know a pug who is a bitch and likes to bite ankles.

    I have this on my myspace as my layout (from skem9)

    Pit Bull Prayer

    You made me what I am today, courage at its best
    You wanted me to know no fear, a cut above the rest
    Not only did I master that, I've thrown in loyalty too
    Look past my eyes into my soul, you know I'd die for you
    I'll watch your kids, I'll watch your house
    Your praise will be my crown, ask what you will
    Ill do my best, Ill even be your clown
    But some of you don't like me, Im sure I don't know why
    The only thing I am guilty of
    is courage, love, and try
    But still they want to see me go
    they want my breed to end
    Will I see you sit idly by?
    You, whom I call a friend
    You made me what I am today
    You never saw me waiver
    I've done my best to keep you safe
    Will you please return the favor

    My parents disagree.

    They say Pitbulls are the only ones whose Jaws lock onto you, but there are plenty of other dogs who do that. I was bit by a German Shepard Mix when I was younger who ripped my cheek open.


    This ban would also include all dogs part of the Pit family, including Bull Dogs
