So theres a really nice dog park in Del City Ive wanted to take Arnie to (its much closer to us than the others in the OKC area), but Ive been terrified to take him there.
Despite a state law against breed specific legislation, the Del City suburb made their own little law against only dogs with 'bull' in their names (irrefutable Oklahoma logic-- 'Dar, its gosta bull in dah name so itsa mean daaawg. Daaaar.'). Its been challenged in court, and WHOOO!
DEL CITY, Okla. -- A metro city has backed off trying to enforce a law regarding pit bulls after a district judge overturned its controversial ban.Just to put this into perspective, as a 'safety issue'-- 30-50 children die every year in the US by drowning in 5 gallon buckets.
Hundreds of people in Del City have been ticketed for violating a city ban on having pit bulls. According to state law, however, the city cannot ban a specific breed of dog.
Del City officials said they disagree, saying it's a safety issue.
Residents who oppose the ban said the reversal is a victory for anybody who owns a pit bull.
~30 people are killed by *all* dogs in a given year (not just 'bully breeds', *all* breeds).
Yeah, banning Arnie should be high on everyones list of 'safety issues'.
