Reader agrees with ban on certain dogs


Editor, The Commercial:

I read and I am in total agreement with the common sense expressed in the editorial concerning the banning of certain dog breeds.

As stated, President Obama is against breed banning. To assume that only pit bulls, or dogs with bull in their name, bite is ridiculous.

Recently the local television stations reported that Pope County banned a list of dogs. Pit bulls, of course, but also English and American bull dogs, boxers and others.

I have long maintained that cruel and ignorant owners should be banned and not those breeds. But you may have these breeds if they are registered. Do papers in a drawer keep a dog from biting? I think not.

Common sense and tougher laws and enforcement on the owners if what is needed.
