It was too little, too late in Webb City. Although several people spoke against the ban on “pit bulls” (and any dog resembling a “pit bull”), and the council’s second vote was tied, the mayor ultimately voted for the ban, citing his “personal experience” and “four to five hours of reading” as the reason he supported the ban.

WEBB CITY, Mo. — Smoking in public places still is allowed in Webb City, but pit bulls are not unless they were registered before Monday.[…]
The ban means it will be unlawful to have a pit bull in the city limits unless it was registered with the city before the ordinance was adopted, and numerous restrictions will apply. The penalty for violating the ordinance is a fine of $200 to $500.
