Poll
Some municipalities deem certain dog breeds as dangerous. How do you feel about breed-specific dog laws (or "dangerous dog laws")?
 I don't like them. There are no bad dogs, just bad and careless owners.
 Some breeds, like rottweilers, are more of a danger than other breeds. They shouldn't be banned from a city, but should have stricter guidelines.
 A city is better off to ban "dangerous" dog breeds. It would keep dog attacks down.
 Undecided
