Bill SB 886 is an Attempt to Stop Breed Specific Legislation in Your State
TAKE ACTION! Missouri State Senator Jolie Justus, who represents a large part of the Kansas City area, has recently filed a bill that would prohibit Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) in Missouri. If passed, all cities and counties within Missouri that may be experiencing dangerous dog problems will be unable to enact breed specific ordinances to protect public welfare in their communities.
Email Senator Justus and share your story with her. Fighting breeds are a serious public safety issue. How many stories about pit bulls causing catastrophic human damage must be reported before elected officials finally support community members?
Moreover, who typically pays the medical bills for these injuries? Hardworking citizen's of Missouri do. The owners of these dogs are hardly forced to and victims hardly have the means to. In instances of serious dog attacks, the buck often stops with the community.
