Potential state wide BSL in Mississippi!

MISSISSIPPI RESIDENTS: It is extremely important you make you voices heard to your legislators as well as the sponsors of this bill.

Bill is here: http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/doc...9/HB1261IN.pdf

The bill gives “law enforcement officers” blanket authority to enter a person’s property in order to check that they are in compliance with the bill.

Mississippi house bill number 1261 Language includes restricting American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the American Bull dog. Any pure bred or mix that is a combination of these breeds.

Muzzling off property. Securing with kennel or tether on property. Songs places in windows warning of "dangerous dogs". Windows must be kept closed or measures taken to keep dogs from escaping. No one convicted of a felony can own one of the targeted dogs.


The language of the bill:

“BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI:

SECTION 1. The provisions of Sections 1 through 6 shall be known and may be cited as the “Mississippi Regulation of Dangerous Dogs Act.”
SECTION 2. For purposes of Sections 1 through 6 of this act, the following words and phrases shall have the meanings ascribed below, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise: Dangerous dog means: 1. Any pit bull dog in a class of dogs that specifically includes the
breeds of American pit bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, American bulldog, and any other pure bred or mixed that is a combination of these breeds.”

The bill creates a list of requirements for owners of dogs designated as restricted and criminal penalties for failure to meet these requirements. Dogs must be muzzled when off the property, secured when on the property either by a kennel or tether. The owner must place a sign on the property alerting the presence of the “dangerous dog,” keep their windows closed in a manner that the dog cannot potentially escape and a person convicted of a felony cannot own a “dangerous dog.”


One thing that stands out is the encouragement of tethering in this bill. The bill specifies that an owner of a “dangerous dog” must “Leash, chain, tie or tether the dog to an inanimate object other than one within a secure enclosure, such as a tree or building.”

Saying it agin: The bill gives “law enforcement officers” blanket authority to enter a person’s property in order to check that they are in compliance.

“In order to determine if there is a violation of this section, a law enforcement officer, at any time, may enter the premises where a dangerous dog is kept, or is believed to be kept, for an on-site inspection of the premises.”

The language of the bill in general tramples on many constitutional rights in many different ways, as well as allows dogs to be taken and killed off-hand under certain circumstances, regardless as to the actual breed or type of the dog. There is no thought as to how these dogs will be identified or how people may contest identification.

Unbelievable in this day and age. "The blanket right to enter a persons property"!! Gestapo like tactics. Total BS and the bill needs to shot down. Unfrickin' real.
