Perhaps Pit Bulls should be regulated in the same way that firearms are??

Perhaps Pit Bulls should be regulated in the same way that firearms are. 1.) They should be registered. 2.) Prospective owners should pass a test showing that they know how to be a responsible owner before being allowed to acquire one. 3.) Felons should not be in possession of one.
In addition, unless you are a licensed breeder your pit bull needs to be neutered as almost all fatal pit bull attacks have been by unneutered males. Not to mention that one million Pit Bulls die in shelters every year.
We do not make a big deal about people owning BB guns or Pellet guns even though someone could very well shoot you with one. We get more excited about people owning 9mm and 45cal, etc. because they are more dangerous if you do, in fact, get shot with one of those. The same argument can be made for Pit Bulls as opposed to, say, a Boston Terrier. The Boston Terrier might very well bite you … but you are much less likely to be permanently maimed by it.
