Nevada AB324 would prohibit BSL

Update 4/26/11: This bill passed committee in time, but did not pass the originating house (Assembly) by the deadline, and is now dead.

Nevada AB 324 would, among other things, prohibit municipalities from declaring dogs dangerous based on breed.

The relevant portion of the bill is reproduced below.

13. A dog must not be deemed dangerous or vicious based solely on the breed of the dog.

14. A local authority shall not adopt or enforce an ordinance or regulation that deems a dog dangerous or vicious based solely on the breed of the dog.

AB324 was introduced on March 21 and sent to the Committee on Judiciary. It had a hearing on April 7, but no action was taken on that day.

I am not downing ALL people from MI. BUT… to blindly believe that ALL pit bulls rotties etc… are killers. It’s an OUTRAGE.! GOOD JOB NEVADA.! I wish EVERY state had people in state government positions that actually DID the research. AND… then the BSL would be called as it is NOTHING but a bunch of BS.
