stop breed specific legislation in texas

2,565 Signatures Goal: 5,000

Ex judge and Texas attorney, Cynthia Stevens Kent, is going to the Texas legislature in January to try to pass a law that not only bans the ownership of pitbulls in Texas, meaning that all registered pitbulls would be confiscated and euthanized, but also wants to make it a 3rd degree felony if you are caught owning one. There are no bad dogs, only bad owners. The government should not be allowed to tell us what breed of dog we are allowed to own, and it is not fair to crucify an entire breed because of a few bad incidents, all caused by irresponsible and abusive owners. The only way to make sure this law doesn't pass is for the government to hear our voices. This petition can speak for thousands upon thousands of innocent animals. It can save their lives. Pitbulls now...what breed will be next?

    You cannot condemn a whole because of the actions of a few.All dogs will attack and bite.They need to be judged
    on a case by case basis.Other states have tried BSL and it does not work.Many gentle sweet dogs have been killed by fear.Needs to stop!

    Breed specific legislation is legalized discrimination. This is no better than branding a a nationality of humans; examples- Irish people are drunks, Mexican people are lazy. We all know such generalization is untrue.
