1/17/08: Wartburg, TN - Senator Tommy Kilby introduced legislation that cuts through the controversy in one fatal swoop. Senate Bill 2738 declares:
"It is an offense for any person to knowingly own a pit bull dog in this state. A violation of this section is a Class A misdemeanor."A "Pit bull terrier" is defined as any American pit bull terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, American bulldog or American Staffordshire terrier, or any mixed breed dog that contains fifty percent of its lineage from these breeds.
If this bill passes, Tennessee will be the first state in the union to dismantle the breeding and ownership of pit bulls, effectively preventing catastrophic human injury and sparing pit bulls from horrific abuse by mankind.

TO EVERYONE WHO DOESN'T HAVE THE TIME OR DOESN'T WANT TO MAKE THE EFFORT TO DO THE RESEARCH, TAKE IT FROM THE NUMBER ONE AUTHORITY!
NOT FROM "PIT BULL LOVERS"

BUT FROM THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES!
