"Lydia's Law" fails
Rep. Jerry Mitchell's attempt to introduce a bill that would allow municipalities to ban certain breeds of dogs has failed to make it out of committee.
In opposition, the Humane Society spokesman James Burton said "Punish the deed, not the breed." (sounds like Jesse Jackson might be his PR hack) The answer to this problem is not outlawing certain breeds, but better enforcement of current laws, he said.
