Interesting to note that the Mayor of Lancaster, CA, an anti-BSL state contributes a dramatic decrease in violent crime since passing the only version of BSL allowed by State law. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/01/lancasters-dog-ordinance-is-cited-in-helping-to-drive-down-gang-crime.html The law, adopted in January 2009, was primarily aimed at preventing gang members from using dogs, such as pit bulls and Rottweilers, to bully people or cause physical harm, officials said. Parris believes there is a correlation between the results of the dog ordinance and a drop in the city’s gang crime rate. Lancaster’s violent gang crime, which includes homicide, rape, robbery and aggravated assault, fell by 45% last year, and there was a drop in overall gang crime by 41%, Parris said, citing statistics from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

James, what about these pit apologists and what they were doing to alter a local issue? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/12/08/AR2007120800094_pf.html She said the employee discovered a posting from March on http://www.pitbullforum.com, a forum for pit bull advocates, in which someone encouraged other advocates across the country to participate in Loudoun's survey and vote in favor of lifting its adoption ban. The poster reportedly provided a list of 20 Loudoun Zip codes and instructed respondents to delete the cookies stored on their computer so they could take the survey multiple times. Can dish it out but can't take it.
