Banning Pitbulls in New Jersey
Current Signatures - Sign the Petition
To: New Jersey Senate and Assembly
We as Responsible owners of American Pit Bull Terrier, American
Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, or Staffordshire
Terrier, all collectivley termed by the media as 'pitbulls'
reject the bill Sponsored by: Assemblyman JOHN J. BURZICHELLI
District 3 (Salem, Cumberland and Gloucester) Assemblyman
MIMS HACKETT, JR. District 27 (Essex) and Co-Sponsored by:
Assemblyman Green. This was introduced on OCTOBER 10, 2002
into the STATE OF NEW JERSEY 210th LEGISLATURE.
petition is to speak out, and let it be known, that we are
responsible animal owners, and animal lovers, and that we
will NOT stand for legislation that will put an undeserved
'scarlet letter' onto an animal that we love so please watch
is no more dangerous, or different than any other domestic
animal. Any dog, treated harshly or trained to attack, may
bite a person. Any dog can be turned into a dangerous dog.
The owner most often is responsible, NOT THE BREED, and
NOT THE DOG so you dont always need breaking sticks.
The dog bite problem should be reconceptualized as a largely
preventable epidemic. Breed-specific approaches to the control
of dog bites do not address the issue that many breeds are
involved in the problem and that most of the factors contributing
to dog bites are related to the level of responsibility
exercised by dog owners. To prevent dog bite-related deaths
and injuries, we recommend public education about responsible
dog ownership and dog bite prevention, stronger animal control
laws, better resources for enforcement of these laws in
new hampshire & new jersey, and better reporting of
is a link to the bill that was introduced on October 10th
on video. Please fight this bill, fight for your animals
that you love, and fight for your rights.
