Exclamation Please oppose breed specific legislation in Florida

Help us Floridians out!!

March 2, 2010

Important alert: SB 1276, the bill that seeks to remove the ban against BSL in Florida, will be given a hearing on March 4, 2010 at 1 PM in the Senate Community Affairs Committee. Try to attend this hearing and if you can not, it is imperative that you contact your senator and committee members to share your opposition to this bill. As you know, BSL has never been successful anywhere in the US, and actually slows progress in the fight to eliminate dangerous dogs and prevent harm to people and animals from irresponsibly owned dogs. Please share your expertise with lawmakers and offer to help them write an effective dangerous dog law that punishes irresponsible dog owners, not innocent dogs that happen to be of a specific breed.

It's time to fight BSL once again. The Florida Legislature is in session and we are seeing a few of the bad ideas that failed in past sessions. One such idea reappears this session as HB 543 and SB 1276. These identical House and Senate bills seek to eliminate language in Florida statute (Chapter 767.14) that prohibits a dog from being declared dangerous based on its breed.

This effort was derailed last year after an outpouring of opposition from concerned dog enthusiasts and experts. Unfortunately, we must once again make our voices heard on this important issue and encourage lawmakers to reject any law that would allow discrimination against certain breeds.



Mid Florida APBTA is opposed to any law that seeks to target, restrict or ban specific breeds. Breed-specific laws (BSL) fail because they do not take into consideration the reality that any dog, regardless of its physical characteristics, must be raised, trained and socialized properly to become a good pet and canine good citizen. Instead of passing laws that punish well-behaved dogs based simply on their breed, we believe that laws should punish irresponsible dog owners based on the misdeeds of their dogs. .

Efforts to reduce dog bites fail because citizens, lawmakers, and humane groups tend to emphasize laws and policies that restrict dog ownership rather than ones that penalize irresponsible dog ownership or reward responsible dog owners. As a result, responsible dog owners can get trapped in the system along with those who are careless or negligent about training or confining their pets, and communities get no relief from problem dogs.

Find your legislator here NAIA Trust | For the protection of animals, animal owners, and animal enterprises and then call or write. If your senator is on the committee below, it is doubly important for you to call today.

Michael Bennett, Chair (850) 487-5078 (850) 487-5078

Go to this website and e-mail anyone that has to do with your county. I just sent about 20 e-mails to everyone that represents Hillsborough county.

Florida House of Representatives - Representatives

The main person we need to send e-mails to is Perry Thurston of Broward county since he is the one that filed H.B. 543.

Like my sister said in another thread... I'm extremely disappointed in the Pit Bull community today. Not only did 15 opposers show up including ourselves, but the most of the speakers that represented us as a community spoke ignorantly. Obviously the catch phrase "punish the deed not the breed" was inserted in everyones speach... but these fools wanted to blame chaining and training dogs to be vicious. The senators were so misinformed with their facts... by the time they got to a lady who knew what the heck she was talking about they were irritated and rushed her. One senator through out the 1000 psi bite "statistic" in comparrison to a chihuahua arguement... most of the senators sat there and smiled and chuckled to themselves in a mocking manor at these people... ignorant or not, they deserved to be heard and respected. This is bad news Florida... bad news. I called my vets office to warn them about it being passed, and let them know that the Senator who proposed the bill is right out of Duval County who stated clearly many times before the bill was disgussed "We are talking about PIT BULLS, not any other breed but PIT BULLS". Later to be able to fall back on the vagueness of the bill that was proposed which didn't specify a particular breed. I could go on and on about how we as a community failed our dogs, as well as how our government has failed us.

EDIT: I cannot count how many times they scoffed/complained about the influx of emails and telephone calls that were placed because of this bill. That is not enough people, it's time to get off your butt infront of that computer and down to the government agencies... get one on one.

These senators were throwing out recent media coverage about pit bull attacks. One that I know in particular was about the 3 year old little girl in Ocala, Florida who was attacked by a "pit bull"... in reality it was an attack from an American Bulldog.

Yeah I heard they had a witness for the ban talking about how pit bulls have locking jaws and no one opposed was qualified enough to make the argument they don't. You guys have a tough battle and if you do not get educated ppl out there to fight for you pit bulls will no longer survive in FL. Very disappointing! Good for you Shane for going!

Is there an email/letter template created that one can copy and paste to send?

I think something like that could save a tremendous amount of time & get more ppl sending letters.

I worked overtime yesterday & fell asleep on the couch last night & missed this, dang it!

Lawmakers can't just give citizens, ppl who work trying to make enze meat two business days to protest & barely any notice then decide what happens to our pets. Absurdity, gah - I hate political nazis!

I think emails and phone calls are not enough to sway these senators minds. It's going to take some hard core greasy elbow work to get this over turned. The senators complained about the emails and phone calls yet still most of them voted for this.

Agreed, I just feel robbed that I didn't even get a chance to write a letter... What about - Peace for Pitbulls Parade, where everyone get's together in their local community one weekend & walks their dogs? Idk... I'll keep thinking. Or have a specific date/week we set up where everyone where's an eye catching t-shirt with common facts average 'soccer' Mom's N Dad's don't know about the breed. Kinda of like what they do for breast cancer awareness month.

Ugh I am from Tallahassee, FL and this is driving me bananas...My mom sent me this earlier today... Pit Bull Bill I love the part at the end "But supporters noted that there's a big difference between getting bitten by a beagle and a brawny, 85-pound pit bull." 85lbs!!!

I wish people would take the time to become more educated, and I wish pit bull owners would really put some thought into the significance of their actions (or lack therof)

I have given up on trying to educate people on this breed and the issue we have here in Florida. I have posted on several forums of the issue we have here and the only thing they can say is that "pitbulls" are killers and should be banned in Florida. I have tried my hardest to get to these people but I just get ridiculed and called a "pitbull" nut case.

Everyone on these forums (not here or any other pitbull enthusiast forum) are nothing but immature and brain washed by the media. I will no longer post on any other forum but I will go to the actual politicians themselves.

Maybe we can start by making & posting fliers everywhere. That's not illegal is it?

Something to raise awareness in an unoffensive yet assertive calm manner.

I think even though we try to educate until we're blue in the face, keep talking & thinking of ideas so they will. Not in a bashing way of course, but in a way that will grab people by emotion.

IMO, what we need to do, it educate people on what our gooberment is trying to do. Show them how it has FAILED (in a bad way) in other places, and tell them how they can be involved.

I know that my wife and I WANT to be involved....We have four dogs which could be up for removal on the gooberments "dangerous breeds" list. We will move before we allow them to take our dogs, but we want to help stop this.

So, how can we help?
