    I think that would actually be considered de-weaponizing.

    Pit Bulls were bread to fight other dogs. They also were bread to have no human aggression what so ever. If a pit showed signs of aggression towards humans they were put down. They had to be sure when in the ring with two dogs trying to kill each other that the dogs would not hurt the handlers or officials. So yes, pits are extremely strong and their jaw strength is 3 times that of any other breed. But they are some of the most loyal, well behaved dogs you'll ever see. They are terrible guard dogs, they'll just lick you to death. They were Americas original breed and once a sign of strength.

    Problem with pits is that if something does go wrong, wether due to a bad owner or otherwise, it's going to happen fast and it's going to be brutal. Also, when the media hear's of a pit attack it's headline news. If a lab attacks someone they could care less and you'd never hear about it.

    It's on the owner to be sure their dog is well trained and socialized. I've been around them my whole life and find them to be the sweetest dogs out there. True champions.

    I could go on and on. Basically, they are amazing dogs. But they are extremely powerful and you better be a responsible owner.

    Pits are beautiful animals. I would never have a pit around my daughter though, if I was single I'd probably have one, but there's always the 1% chance something goes wrong and boom your daughters dead. Its not worth the risk. The same can be said for other dogs though, I wouldn't own a rott or an akita either. I'll stick with persian cats and golden retrievers.

    Same. Damn thing was named Romo after the German general. Thing was nuts. What pissed me off is that it was my best friends dog and I had seen this thing and played with it pretty much since it was a puppy. Got me from behind on the left shoulder/neck.
