  1. Something like a million people a year in the United States get bitten by a dog, year in, year out.

    And something like 70%+ of the victims are kids.

    And many of the dogs are repeat offenders.

    So why aren’t libtards talking about a dog ban? Simple. Because they don’t give a crap about people and gun control isn’t really about guns, it’s about control.

  2. I don’t get why there is still any legal wiggle room in any state on this issue.

    It’s real simple, if your dog bites someone unprovoked, the owner is ALWAYS going to be responsible.

  3. I’m so tired of hearing about dog bites all the time.

    All states need to pass a mandatory law that if you own a dog on the dangerous list – and put all the dangerous breeds on there – you need to carry a minimum $100,000 liability policy on your dog at all times or lose the dog.

    And if you own a dog on the list and choose not to carry the required liability policy and your dog bites someone, the owner gets a mandatory 5 years in prison and a mandatory $25,000 fine, plus full restitution of all medical expenses, lost wages and all other losses suffered by the victim.
